Former Surrey and England batsman Mark Butcher took time out to speak with Cricket World to (attempt to!) predict the semi-finalists of the Champions Trophy as well as a look back at his Test matches and time in South Africa.
Always an enjoyable experience, except possibly when he was injured(!), in what turned out to be his last Test. He has fond memories of the grounds, the brias and the people and was speaking to Cricket World in association with Thomas Cook Sport, official travel partner of the PCA.
While perched on the scaffold at Derby, Butch was in good spirits and has been quite busy since retiring from the game, commentating and giving his views on a whole range of aspects of the game.
