Tuf­fers test for Ag­gers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - ONN BUCKS -

SINCE the home Ashes se­ries in 2013, evenings with cricket leg­end Jonathan Agnew have been de­light­ing au­di­ences all over the coun­try.

Now, fol­low­ing in the foot­steps of Ge­of­frey Boy­cott, Su­nil Gavaskar and Graeme Swann, Phil Tufnell teams up with his Test Match Spe­cial col­league for a se­ries of shows for 2016.

Tuf­fers was the bad boy of English cricket in the 1990s, but the best spin­ner – left-arm or oth­er­wise – as well.

Since re­tir­ing, he has carved out a suc­cess­ful TV ca­reer, ap­pear­ing in re­al­ity shows such as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here and Strictly Come Danc­ing and he is Matt Daw­son’s op­pos­ing team cap­tain of BBC’s lon­grun­ning se­ries, A Ques­tion of Sport.

This will be a fas­ci­nat­ing, en­ter­tain­ing, no-holds-barred evening for cricket fans and non-lovers of the game alike and there will be an op­por­tu­nity for the au­di­ence to tweet Ag­gers with their own ques­tions.

The event is be­ing run in aid of the Pro­fes­sional Crick­eters As­so­ci­a­tion and we are rais­ing money from the evening which will go to the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Benev­o­lent Fund.

It will take place at the Wy­combe Swan on Mon­day, April 18 at 7.30pm. Tick­ets are priced at £25 and can be bought by call­ing the box of­fice on 01494 512000 or go­ing to www. wy­combe swan. co.uk.
