Nick Friend has worked for The Cricketer since shortly before the 2019 World Cup, when he joined from CNN Sport.
He loves a long read and was named the Christopher Martin-Jenkins Young Journalist of the Year for 2020.
His cricketing interests stretch as far and wide as the life and times of Maroŝ Kolpak, the T20 Mascot Derby and the associate game in South America, where he spent a year as a 20-year-old as Cricket Argentina’s assistant coach in Buenos Aires.
Among his roles, he leads The Cricketer’s coverage of the women’s game and writes regular features on county cricket.
In his spare time – if such a thing exists – he captains a team at North Middlesex CC, where he is also a member of the club’s committee.
