The Cricketer magazine invites you to join them on Thursday 6th July for an evening with Nasser Hussain. Nasser captained England 45 times across his 96 Tests, presiding over one the most important periods in the history of English cricket. Bottom of the Test ratings in 1999, he hauled them up by the boot straps; without his groundwork, the 2005 Ashes win under Michael Vaughan would not have happened.
- His recollections of England Test cricket in the ‘90s – a talented side that began the decade with great hope beating West Indies for the first time in 16 years and ended it at rock bottom
- What were the most important steps he oversaw in turning England into a competitive, professional side?
- His personal successes, an Ashes double-hundred, the comeback innings against India in ’96, runs against Murali while captaining in the subcontinent and beating West Indies
- Controversy on his watch, the Hansie Cronje game at Centurion in 1999, putting Australia in at the Gabba in 2002, the Zimbabwe decision in 2003, his relationship with Tim Lamb, and gesturing to the media centre after his ODI hundred against India.
Please do join them for what should be a wonderful evening in the company of one of English cricket’s most important figures – this event takes place after play on the first day of the Lord’s Test vs South Africa – so Nasser and Simon Hughes will be fresh from the commentary box and able to reflect on the start of the English Test summer in your company.
Please note tickets are strictly limited – so book with them now to avoid disappointment.
Date: Thursday 6th July
Timing: 7.00pm to 9.00pm (the event will start at 7.30pm)
