Martin Crowe tells us what he really thinks about Geoff Howarth

...

Oh, it was definitely the culture in the team when I came in that I wasn't made very welcome. Only John Wright actually welcomed me into the team. The captain [Geoff Howarth] called me a show pony the whole time and treated me like shit. That didn't help. Greg Chappell and Rod Marsh were nicer to me than my own team-mates.

...

Howarth as coach was a joke, and I played under Lee Germon, which was ridiculous.


From here.

Martin Crowe; the closest NZ has had to a tortured genius.

That's a great interview. It is really good to hear Crowe talk about stuff he knows well – about batting, his career and analysing other players. Certainly is a refreshing change from his pontifications on chucking and John Bracewell.
