The Cricketer would be delighted to invite you to their first live event of 2018 – an evening in the company of Mike Brearley. Regarded by many as England’s finest captain, and voted as such by readers of The Cricketer in 2016, Brearley won 18 and lost only four of his 31 Tests in charge. Bringing his psychoanalytic skills to bear as skipper, Brearley was famously described as having “a degree in people” and was at the helm for three Ashes series victories and three County Championships with Middlesex.
Please do join The Cricketer in London on March 7th for an enjoyable evening with Mike in conversation with one of his former Middlesex charges, editor of The Cricketer Simon Hughes. You will have the chance to pose your own questions, on subjects including:
His memories captaining England and Middlesex. What was his finest achievement?
The inside story of England’s famous 1981 Headingley victory
Which players did he most enjoy captaining & who were the most challenging?
If he could pick one lesson from his seminal cricket book The Art of Captaincy to pass on to youngsters, what would it be?
Life after cricket and his interests outside the game
Tickets: £25 per person
Date: Wednesday 7th March
Timing: 6.30pm to 8.30pm (the event will start at 7.00pm)
