My biggest cricketing moment was the 438 game at the wanderers - Kass Naidoo

Kass Naidoo is a media specialist with a keen interest in sport, and the use of social media to connect sports fans. Naidoo used to work for Talk Radio 702 before branching off to other ventures and eventually landing her dream job which was becoming a cricket commentator.

Today Naidoo is widely regarded as an award-winning sports journalist who defied the odds to achieve her childhood dream of becoming South Africa’s first female television cricket commentator at the age of 27.

I didn't know then but i know it now. I had a deep urge to unite South Africa through cricket.
