Come and hear the wonderful Aggers (Jonathan Agnew) on 31st October at the private London Capital Club for a 3 course dinner with wine for a special rate of £50'. Call 0207 717 0088 for more details.

Quote 'cricket world' when booking for a special £50 rate for the first 25 people who apply.

Join Jonathan Agnew, the former Leicestershire & England cricketer and stalwart of Test Match Special, for an evening of fine food, drink and chat about the glorious game.

A fine fast bowler in his day, Aggers’ best first-class bowling figures were 9 for 70 and he took six ten-wicket hauls in 218 matches. During the 1980’s Jonathan Agnew played three Test Matches and three One Day Internationals for England before taking up his position in the commentary box.

In 1987, Agnew began work with BBC Radio Leicester. He retired at the end of the 1990 season to become chief cricket writer of the Today newspaper, and was appointed BBC Cricket Correspondent at the start of the 1991 season. Agnew made his ball-by-ball commentary debut for the final Test of the 1991 season.

He was also the catalyst to Brian Johnston's infamous fit of the giggles after Ian Botham was out hit wicket - after failing to get "his leg over" which has been voted "the greatest piece of sporting commentary ever" in a BBC poll. Jonathan Agnew is now one of the mainstays of Test Match Special, writes regularly for the BBC Sport website and has written a number of cricketing books.
