Legal lessons from ‘Bazball’, Ashes cricket and the Matildas’ World Cup run

BigLaw partner Peter Hunt, an avid sports fan, says there is much that legal professionals can learn from the new-age style of cricket being played by the English national team. Lawyers, he submits, should look to all corners for guidance on how best to adapt and evolve their practice and service delivery in an ever-changing marketplace.

In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with McCabes partner Peter Hunt about the phenomenon of “Bazball” (the England cricket team’s new style of play) that was most recently on display in the Ashes series against Australia and the lessons that can be drawn from that style of play for legal professionals to be adopted into one’s approach to practice.

Specifically, he reflects on the importance of being bold, taking calculated risks, backing one’s self, and the need to stay strong, as well as learning from one’s failures, what we can all take away from the Matildas’ success in the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup, and drawing inspiration from all aspects of life in how one can and should be a better lawyer.
