Fresh from a successful show with Graeme Swann in Nottingham, Jonathan Agnew will host Sunil Gavaskar in Leicester in the second 'An Evening With Aggers & ...' show of the summer.

An evening of cricket and comedy is in store as the show heads to Leicester for the first time, supporting the Professional Cricketers' Association Benevolent Fund.

Ex-Leicestershire and England bowler Agnew, now the BBC's chief cricket correspondent and Test Match Special commentator will take the stage alongside Gavaskar, one of Test cricket's most prolific run-scorers.

Viewers will be able tweet their questions for both Aggers and Sunny ahead of and during the event which will be held at the De Montfort Hall on Saturday, 6th September.

"It’s a real thrill to be working with one of world cricket’s all-time greats," promoter Simon Fielder said.

"This is a unique opportunity to hear Sunny talk about life on and off the field and share intimate and funny stories about other famous names he has played with and against."

Gavaskar was the first player to score 10,000 Test runs and also the first fielder (excluding wicket-keepers) to take 100 catches.

Since retiring from the game, he has worked in the media, has chaired the ICC Cricket Committee and is currently the interim president of the Indian board (BCCI).
