Andrew Strauss OBE - 'one of the world’s most respected cricketers'

After Lunch Speaker - Andrew Strauss OBE 

Andrew Strauss Former Director of Cricket for the England national team.  Among the world’s most respected players, he is one of only three England captains in history to secure Ashes victories both home and away. Under his stewardship, the national side achieved No.1 Test ranking.

After abandoning a career in the City, Andrew scored a century on his Test debut at Lords.  He went on to be rated one of the finest batsmen in the game, scoring over 7,000 runs. A resourceful and dependable opening bat, he often made valuable contributions in tricky situations and he was always recognised for his leadership and professionalism.

On the field Andrew led by example, with a mixture of grit and intelligence. Off the field he was equally popular with supporters and media, doing an enormous amount to promote the game. He retired from the pitch after his 100th Test and took to commentary work with Sky. He was then approached to become Director of Cricket after a difficult period for the team and his successor Alastair Cook.
