PORT OF SPAIN – Not since Donna Symmonds graced the airwaves has a woman cricket commentator drawn the attention that Isa Guha has.

She is a woman assessing the men’s game, but the 30-year-old former England player is not intimidated and has been making a name for herself on radio and television as a commentator and pundit.
