Chris Cowdrey and his legendary cricketing father Lord (Colin) Cowdrey were only the second father and son to captain England. Cowdrey followed his father into the Kent and England teams, and was Kent Captain for six years from 1985. With his brother Graham also playing professional cricket there was a Cowdrey on the Kent team sheet for 48 consecutive years. In 1988 Cowdrey was appointed England Captain against West Indies. He will be remembered as one of the most engaging characters that ever played English cricket.

He was a regular broadcaster with BBC and TalkSport, and his after-dinner speeches give an interesting and funny insight into following in the footsteps of a famous father. Cowdrey is in demand as a public speaker and also as a Master of Ceremonies and Auctioneer where his humour adds much to any event.
