Sun 26 March 2017, 18:00 – 22:00 BST
An evening with Waqar Younis (Pakistan) and Brain Lara (West Indies)
Join us for an evening with two of the most iconic names in cricket as we raise money for those in desperate need.
Right-arm fast bowler Waqar Younis is instantly recognisable thanks to his signature bowling style, making him one of the fastest bowlers of his time. Former holder of the youngest ever Pakistani Test Captain and third youngest Test Captain in history, Waqar’s talent is undeniable. With an incredible record, he is now a highly-regarded Coach and Commentator and member of the ICC Hall of Fame.
Having started playing cricket at the age of six, it is no surprise that Lara the Prince of Port-of-Spain would become one of the greatest batsmen of all time.
Brain Charles Lara thrilled the world with his expansive left handed batting and scored runs with ease and grace. His batting stance was almost as good to look at as his stroke play: he would have his bat raised high in the air while he positioned his weight onto his bent front knee, while his eyes remained focused and level at all times. Without doubt, Brian Lara is a legend in the cricketing world
Together they provide the ultimate cricket dream team as we raise funds for people across the world who are suffering in poverty and conflict.
Join us for an exclusive sit-down dinner and inspirational talks with two of cricket’s biggest legends.
