An Evening with Nasser Hussain

An Evening with Nasser Husain is on Wednesday 24th April 2024

Nasser Hussain is a British cricket commentator, author, actor and former cricketer who captained the England cricket team between 1999 and 2003, with his overall international career extending from 1990 to 2004. A pugnacious right-handed batsman, Hussain scored over 30,000 runs from more than 650 matches across all first-class and List-A cricket, including 62 centuries. His highest Test score of 207, scored in the first Test of the 1997 Ashes at Edgbaston, was described by Wisden as "touched by genius". 

Simon Barnes of The Times wrote that Hussain was "perhaps the finest captain to hold the office” and Wisden described him as one of the most significant captains in the history of the England team. Probably the compliment he would most cherish would be from Sachin Tendulkar who wrote in his autobiography Playing It My Way: My Autobiography that “Among the Captains I have played against; I consider Nasser Hussein the best. He was an excellent strategist ... and a very good thinker about the game.”

Both his thoughts on the current state of cricket and his views on leadership will be invaluable listening to all generations
