Martin Crowe is one of New Zealand's greatest batsmen, scoring more than 10,000 runs in international cricket. Crowe scored 17 test centuries for the Black Caps — a record for Kiwi cricket at the time. But at the peak of his stellar career, he struggled with anxiety and life outside of cricket. In this episode of The Nutters Club, the TV arm of a radio show, Crowe has an intimate chat with hosts Mike King and Dr Dave Codyre, speaking about poor self-image, fear of failure, his cancer diagnosis and his realisation that "love transcends all". Crowe died in 2016, aged 53.
It's a brutal game being a batsman, because one mistake and you're gone.– Martin Crowe sums up the pressure of elite sport
