David Boon on team camaraderie, fielding at bat-pad and proving people wrong

David Boon is one of the toughest and most talented players ever to pull on a Baggy Green and I am so lucky to speak to him on this episode of Lessons Learnt with the Greats. Boonie was the rock at the top of the order in Australia's Test side in the 80s and 90s, scorng 21 Test hundreds and dominating the bat-pad position like no other. His insights into batting, his mental approach and how he values camaraderie are all absolute gold.
