Meeting 12 December - Malcolm Nash

Fifty years ago, at Swansea on 31 August 1968, Sir Garfield Sobers hit 'Six Sixes' in one six-ball over - the first player in senior cricket to achieve the feat. But who was the unlucky bowler? None other than Glamorgan all-rounder, and later captain, Malcolm Nash. Join Malcolm to relive an iconic moment in cricket history - by chance recorded for posterity by BBC Wales (watch here); learn more about his bowling and his own feats as a big-hitter (four consecutive sixes in one over, plus the fastest-ever century in the B&H Cup); and enjoy great stories of cricket in the 60s and 70s, many featuring the all-conquering Yorkshire team of that era - Close, Trueman, Boycott, Illingworth et al.  

Signed copies of Malcolm's autobiography - Not Only, But Also: My Life in Cricket (St David's Press, May 2018) - will be available. Read more in interviews with Gareth Griffiths, BBC Sport Wales [here]; Lawrence Booth, Daily Mail [here]

‘A thoughtful and sensitive cricketer’ John Arlott 

‘People should remember that Malcolm was a wonderful opening bowler...in many of his peers’ minds the best new ball bowler in county cricket’ Peter Walker 

‘Somehow one sensed that something extraordinary was going to happen when Sobers sauntered to the wicket.’ Wisden 

'wherever I go, all I hear is: “Tell us about the six sixes".’ Garry Sobers

Meeting 10 October - Chris Lewis

‘... when that officer returns after ... [finding] cocaine I know that, from that moment, everything is going to change.’ Born in Guyana in 1968, Chris Lewis arrived in the UK aged 10 and went on to play thirty-two Tests and fifty-three one-day Internationals for England. Yet this hugely talented all-rounder often felt at odds with the game, courting off-field controversies lapped up by the tabloids. After naming three England players allegedly involved in a match-fixing scandal, he drifted out of first-class cricket, aged just 30. In 2008 a surprise pay-as-you-play t20 contract with Surrey was ended early by injury, and later that year he was arrested at Gatwick Airport, tried and convicted of smuggling cocaine, and sentenced to thirteen years in gaol. Released in 2015, Chris is gradually rebuilding his life - playing, coaching and working with the Professional Cricketers' Association to better prepare current and future players for life after the game. His autobiography Crazy: My Road to Redemption was published last year, and The Long Road Back, a play by Dougie Blaxland - a.k.a James Graham Brown (Kent & Derbyshire), author of the acclaimed When the Eye Has Gone, on the life of Colin Milburn - will tour next spring.

Read recent interviews: Independent [here] and The Hindu [here]. Or listen to the BBC's Stumped podcast [here]. 

Signed copies of Crazy: My Road to Redemption available on the night.

He played international age-group cricket from under-15 to under-19 level, including appearances at the MCG and SCG, and also skippered England Lions to t20 victory over a full England side in 2010.
