Nasser Hussain OBE is one of England’s most recognisable and popular cricket players. Having achieved huge success as a batsman at both county and international level, his superior technique and patience to build big innings scores was admired globally. A wonderful cricket speaker, Nasser has experienced elite sport for a number of years in some of his nation’s most successful times.
Throughout his career, Nasser improved exponentially, mastering the drive and cut shot whilst maintaining a strong defence and supporting the team with excellent fielding ability in any position. Nasser’s talks as an after dinner speaker and cricket speaker cover his experiences in the game along with other key lessons for life, including overcoming adversity and maximising success.
Nasser was appointed as Vice Captain of England to Micheal Atherton in 1996, and then to Alec Stewart in the season of 1998. Finally, in June 1999, Nasser made England Captain after 39 tests. Also in this year, Nasser became an elementary figure in the World Cup squad, along with being named captain of his domestic club, Essex. During his time as England captain, Nasser accomplished something that has only been replicated by WG Grace and Mike Brearley – winning four consecutive Test series. These actions saw England climb from last to third in the ICC Test Championship Ranking Table. Nasser retired in the summer of 2004 by scoring 103 not out against New Zealand. This performance was epitomised by Nasser scoring the winning run, with his favourite shot – a cover drive. An illustrious career, Nasser is in constant demand as a sports speaker, speaking on the highs and lows of a professional career in cricket.
Nasser has gone on to represent Sky Sports on their broadcasting and commentary teams, giving expert views during England tests and ODIs all over the world along with domestic cricket matches.
