Podcast: Issy Wong on The Hundred and her Cricketing Journey - AOC Pod Ep.8
You've read the article. Now here's the entire chat with Issy!
For episode 8, we’re joined by Warwickshire, Central Sparks, and Birmingham Phoenix fast bowler Issy Wong. 19-year-old Wong has already been clocked at over 70 miles an hour, and she has expressed her desire to become the world’s fastest female bowler. But there’s so much more to Issy’s story than just being THAT girl who wants to hit 80 clicks.
Issy walks us through her Hong Kong roots and her early development as a cricketer, before discussing how professionalization has already had a big impact on her career. We also talk about her approach to fast bowling, her plans for The Hundred, and her England ambitions.
