James Anderson joins exciting Cricket Expo line up
Lancashire & England legend to speak at free Cricket Expo
Lancashire Cricket Foundation is thrilled to confirm that England’s all-time leading wicket-taker James Anderson has joined the Cricket Expo line up as a keynote speaker.
The record-breaking seamer joins Michael Vaughan and David ‘Bumble’ Lloyd who will also speak to attendees at the free event which takes place on Saturday 29 February and Sunday 1 March at Emirates Old Trafford.
Anderson, who recently played his 150th Test match on England’s tour of South Africa, also holds the record for the most Test wickets taken by a fast bowler – with his tally currently standing at 584.
The four-time Ashes winner, who has also played in three ICC Cricket World Cups, will be in conversation with the Expo compere in a Q&A format, sharing stories from life at the top of the game and offering an insight into what it takes to become England’s all-time leading wicket taker.
Anderson 37, is also a proud graduate of Lancashire’s Academy system, debuting during the final month of the 2001 season, he then went on to take 50 First-Class wickets in his first full domestic campaign the following summer.
Head of Cricket Business, Warren Hegg, said: “We’re over the moon to have Test cricket’s most successful seam bowler, and our own Lancashire lad Jimmy Anderson, confirmed for the Expo.
“With the busy schedule of an international cricketer, to have the opportunity to hear from Jimmy is incredibly rare and I would urge anybody with a passion for cricket to ensure that they sign up and do not miss out on this.
“Not only will there be masterclasses taking place across the weekend, the whole of Emirates Old Trafford will provide a platform for activities, informative workshops, and suppliers exhibiting the latest products and solutions to assist in the running of a cricket club.”
