Press Release – 14th August 2014
A night full of cricket and comedy with Aggers & Sunny for the first time in the city
Simon Fielder presents an evening with cricket legends Jonathan Agnew and Sunil Gavaskar at the De Montfort Hall in Leicester on Saturday 6th September 2014.
Former Leicestershire and England cricketer, Test Match Special commentator and BBC Chief Cricket correspondent, Jonathan Agnew is set to return to the city alongside legendary opening batsman Sunil Gavaskar for a show full of cricket and comedy.
Gavaskar set world records for the most test runs and centuries by any batsman and was the first to score 10,000 runs and the first Indian fielder (excluding wicket-keepers) to get over 100 catches in test cricket.
Since retiring in 1987, Gavaskar’s long list of achievements include becoming an author, commentator, test and ODI referee, chairman of the ICC cricket committee and is currently interim President at The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
Following the huge sell-out success of ‘An Evening with Boycott & Aggers’, the event is being run in support of the Professional Cricketers’ Association and money raised from the evening will go to the organisation’s Benevolent Fund.
A must for all cricket lovers, as the audience will have the opportunity to tweet Agnew with their own questions during the evening.
Event promoter Simon Fielder, shared: “It’s a real thrill to be working with one of world cricket’s all-time greats. This is a unique opportunity to hear Sunny talk about life on and off the field and share intimate and funny stories about other famous names he has played with and against.”
