Interview With Steve Rixon: [Full Audio Clip | Full Transcript]


Rixon is best known in recent times for his role in coaching New Zealand's national side between May 1996 and August 1999 and transforming the Black Caps into one of the cricketing world's more hardened and competitive international teams.

Previously, he was among Australia's more respected band of wicketkeeper-batsmen during a first class career which spanned more than 150 matches (most of them for New South Wales in domestic competition) and encompassed thirteen Tests and six one-day internationals.


Also resting on his long list of credits is the distinction of coaching New South Wales (guiding it to the phenomenal tally of three Sheffield Shield titles and three domestic one-day crowns no less) during the five year period between 1989-90 and 1994-95.

Steve Rixon

Having recently arrived back in Australia, he will return to his old stamping ground of the Sydney Cricket Ground in the 2000-01 season to once again confront the challenge of steering the now ailing Blues back toward the top. For the moment though, Steve Rixon fields your questions on all aspects of cricket and on his vast experience in, and knowledge of, the sport.
