On She Speaks Sport today, Mignon talks about life since retiring from international cricket in 2022, her experience of the T20 Women’s World Cup and the emotions she felt while commentating through the tournament. We talk about legacy and I ask the question, “What do you want to be remembered for?” Mignon shines a light on her faith and how she has always lived by the belief that God has gifted her with talents, and what she does with those talents is her gift to God. We also speak about life lessons from the field and beyond, as well as her unique approach to captaincy and how she kept the team motivated through the losses and the hard times.
