Cricket Sports Speakers Rise from The Ashes

If you are thinking of booking sports speakers, then there has never been a better time to cash in on the popularity of cricket following England’s victory against Australia Down Under. England reclaimed The Ashes in January, pushing cricketers into the glare of the public eye once again. The demand for cricketers as sports speakers has never been higher following their emphatic series win in Australia. Booking ex-cricketers as sports speakers is a sure fire way of making your event a success. Here is a guide to three of the best cricket sports speakers in the business, who are guaranteed to hit a few sixes at your next event!

David Gower

Now the cornerstone of Sky Sports’ commentary team, many will remember Gower as being one of the most stylish left-handers to ever play the game in the modern-era. His lilting tones have endeared him to the public in his post-cricket career in the media and can be attributed to why he is so popular on the after-dinner circuit.

Sir Ian Botham

Ian ‘Beefy’ Botham is a firm favourite among all sports fans, not just those of cricket. The former England captain is regarded as one of the greatest all-round cricketers of all time. Botham’s larger than life personality has made him a highly controversial character during his career. His high-profile bust-ups and run-ins with the law make for some great anecdotes at any events where after dinner speakers are required.

Shane Warne

Why not invite the greatest Australian bowler of all time to your event. In 2005, Shane was selected by Wisden as one of the five greatest Cricketers of the Century, so you will have a true legend in the midst of your event. Not only is Shane a legend of the game, he is also a fantastically colourful personality, with some great stories. (It’ll also give you the perfect opportunity to do a bit of gloating.) With over 37 years of experience in the industry, Prime Performers specialise in getting the right speakers for your event.
