As you get older, you think about life a little bit more broadly as well. And obviously, my fiance, Mary Margaret, who was born and raised in America, she’s had a massive part to play in that because she’s sacrificed so much for me, by moving to New Zealand, getting immersed in a different culture there, and, and supporting me through a lot of tough times with injuries and time out of cricket.
