“2017 has been a fair roller coaster, last year I was just looking to cement my spot with the WA team and I ended up getting called up to the boxing day test match which was never in my expectations and then to play the Sydney Test wasn’t in my expectations. So to go from trying to cement my spot in the WA team to the Australian team, it changed my views and changed my goals certainly”

My special guest is Hilton Cartwright. Hilton is an Australian cricketer who plays state crickets for WA and in the big bash for the Perth Scorchers. In 2017 he made his International Debut in both test match and one day international cricket for Australia.

You will learn plenty in episode 52 of the Talking with TK Podcast.
