One of then most recognisable cricketers of the modern era, Robert Croft MBE played county cricket for 23 seasons, proving testament to his reputation as a hugely reliable and consistent performer for both club and country. Representing both England and Wales during his career, Croft has played in some of the nation’s most famous games in recent years and understands exactly what it takes to perform at an elite level of sport. A great cricket speaker, Croft has a vast array of tales to tell from his professional career including moments the cameras may not have picked up.
Croft made his England debut in 1996 against Pakistan and made such an impression that he secured a place on the nation’s tour of Zimbabwe and New Zealand, taking his best figures of 5-95 in Christchurch. After the 2004 tour of Sri Lanka, Croft announced his retirement from International Cricket to focus on his domestic club, Glamorgan. Delivering anecdotal tales of his time on the international stage, Robert is a compelling cricket speaker who gives an insight into professional sport for every audience member.
By 2007, Robert had made a new record for a Welsh cricketer by being the first to pass 1,000 first class wickets as well as scoring over 10,000 runs. With other achievements including the first Glamorgan spinner to take a hat-trick in 46 years, Robert received an MBE for his services to his sport in 2013. A consummate professional, Croft is sure to be an ideal after dinner speaker, using his ability to tailor his content to suit all guests.
