With this week signaling the start of the third test between England and South Africa in Johannesburg, Dr David James, from the Centre for Sports Engineering Research at Hallam, has featured in two major media outlets discussing how the high altitude of the cricket ground may affect the ball.

Firstly, David spoke to The Times for a feature in the paper followed by a ten minute conversation with Jonathan Agnew live on BBC Radio's iconic Test Match Special during the tea break on the first day's play. You can listen to David speaking with 'Aggers' from the 5 hour 4 minute mark on this link.
