  • A Former England Cricketer & Fast Bowler
  • Able To Entertain The Audience With His Years Of Experience

Angus Fraser is a former England cricketer and fast bowler. Angus now a TV pundit for Sky and journalist is also a very popular “outspoken after dinner speaker”

The often lugubrious, care-worn appearance of the former Middlesex captain during his playing career has given way to a more relaxed style in his new career as a journalist.

Now cricket correspondent of The Independent, Angus has also fitted in well as a regular contributor to Radio 5’s Test Match Special.

Nagging accuracy was the chief characteristic of his bowling and he earned comparisons with Alec Bedser after taking five for 28 to bowl England to a famous Test win over the West Indies in Jamaica. Four years later an eight-wicket first innings haul helped England achieve an equally surprising victory in Barbados. His Caribbean love affair continued with 20 wickets in back-to-back Tests in Trinidad in 1998. He nevertheless retired with a healthy haul of 886 first-class wickets.

During the past few years, Angus has gained a great deal of experience in perfecting his after dinner speaking. He is always happy to give his honest, passionate and amusing opinion on a number of topics, sport related or not. Through his openness, Angus tends to endear himself to the audience, allowing them to relate to his past experiences, which always ensures a relaxing and very enjoyable evening.

Angus is ideal for either the cricket and golf club dinners or many corporate opportunities, when he is able to entertain the audience with his years of experience at the very top of his profession.
