Allan Lamb, who is best known for his 79 test matches for England and 128 one day internationals, will speak at Worcestershire County Cricket Club on Friday, June 28.

He also captained England three times against the West Indies and Australia, and led Northampton Cricket Club from 1989 to 1994.

In his career he scored 4654 test runs with 14 centuries and 33,502 first class runs with 89 hundreds, and also won 'Cricketer of the Year' in 1980.

The dinner, sponsored by The Lamb & Flag Worcester, will be a part of Worcestershire fast bowler Joe Leach’s Testimonial Season, and will also support grass roots cricket projects in South Africa.

Attendees will also enjoy a three-course dinner, live music, an auction, and a competition.

It will be hosted by BBC Hereford & Worcester’s Frank Watson.
