Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe has predicted that the Blackcaps will face South Africa in the World Cup final.
“I’m picking a New Zealand v South Africa final,” he said. “That’s my gut feeling with South Africa due as well. We are going to win it one day and we’re pretty good at home.”
Crowe, who recently suffered a relapse of lymphoma, revealed that he has opted to try natural remedies instead of continuing chemotherapy.
As a result of this, former New Zealand rugby star Grant Fox gave Crowe supplements made from sea cucumber, which he got from the Pacific Islands.
“The chemo is brutal and it was going to be a 100-day vigil so I thought it would be better if I just chilled at home and so far, so good,” he said. “I am standing at the moment. I didn’t necessarily think I would get through to the end of 2014 but I am here, I am feeling OK.”
After several months of sleeping up to 14 hours per day, Crowe stated that he has been feeling better and even spent New Year’s with his cousin, who is Oscar-winning actor Russell Crowe.
“He flew us up to his farm (in Australia)…[and] had all the kids and cousins there,” he said.
