Video: Alec Stewart Talks Success At Big Sports Breakfast

 

English cricket legend, Alec Stewart OBE discusses the importance of good leadership and teamwork in sport and business at the Big Sports Breakfast at Ashton Gate on Friday, May 27th. 

With 118 international caps, Alec Stewart is the most capped English Test cricketer of all time.

After 20 years in County and International cricket his final match was a very high profile one at his home ground The Oval against South Africa in the summer of 2003.

Stewart made his cricket debut for Surrey in 1981 and England debut in the first Test of the 1989/90 tour of the West Indies.

Alec Stewart was vice-captain of the England side during most of Michael Atherton’s tenure as captain, eventually succeeding him in 1998.

During his captaincy, he had the unusual distinction of simultaneously captaining the side, opening the batting and keeping wicket.

In 1994, at the Kensington Oval in the West Indies, Alec Stewart became only the 7th English batsmen to score centuries in both innings of a test match. His highest Test score, 190, against Pakistan in the first Edgbaston Test on 4th June 1992 – a match that was drawn.
