Event description

Description

More than 54 years ago a Pakistan batsman playing for Northamptonshire played a shot that changed that most traditional of games, cricket. Mushtaq Mohammad didn’t know it but when he played what is now known as the reverse sweep, he was setting off a chain of events that are still unfolding today. On the eve of perhaps the most important season in English cricket history, featuring both a home World Cup and an Ashes series against Australia, the former England player Derek Pringle joins us for a Tortoise ThinkIn on where Mushtaq’s act of disruption has led us.


What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?

A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.

Drinks from 6.30pm, starts promptly at 7pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!

If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing thinkin@tortoisemedia.com

We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.

Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
