Ian Bell MBE and Sir Curtly Ambrose among star-studded line up of guest speakers confirmed by Keith Prowse to elevate the hospitality experience at Edgbaston this summer.

This summer hospitality guests will be treated to unique insights and entertained by the game’s greats. Former England batter Mark Ramprakash and legendary West Indies bowler Curtly Ambrose will be joining guests for the Men’s Test between England and West Indies in July.

Whilst five-time Ashes winner Ian Bell and fast bowler Dominic Cork will be on hand during the Men’s IT20 later this month, with the latter also featuring at Vitality Blast Finals Day in September.

Mark Ramprakash MBE

England batter Mark Ramprakash played for the national side between 1991-2002 and will be hosting in the 1882 Club across the first three days of the Men’s Test as England take on West Indies.

Ramprakash’s cricketing career spanned over two decades, earning him a reputation as one of the best run-scorers in county cricket history. Additionally, he played a pivotal role in England’s victory in the final Ashes Test of 1997 at The Kia Oval with a valuable 48 runs to set up a thrilling 19-run win.

Beyond the cricket pitch, Mark Ramprakash has proved himself a multi-talented athlete, winning the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2006.

Sir Curtly Ambrose

On of the all-time greats of West Indies cricket, the legendary Sir Curtly Ambrose will be in attendance in the Warwickshire Suite and Executive Boxes across the Men’s Test in July.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, Ambrose’s record-breaking 405 Test wickets at an average of 20.99 continues to inspire generations – he even held the title of the best bowler in the world for a significant portion of his career.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet and mingle with the man who struck fear into the hearts of batters worldwide.

Dominic Cork

England fast bowler and Sky Sports commentator Dominic Cork will be bringing his expertise to both the Men’s IT20 and Vitality Blast Finals Day.

Renowned for his swing and seam control, cricket enthusiasts will remember his remarkable debut Test performance in 1995, where he claimed the best figures for an England bowler on debut (7 for 43) against the West Indies.

Cork also has firsthand experience winning T20 Finals Day after Hampshire’s final-ball victory against Somerset in 2010, so get ready to hear his wealth of knowledge. Prepare to be captivated by his tales of on-field battles and hear tales of the thrilling world of international and domestic T20 cricket.

Ian Bell MBE

As an England and Warwickshire great, Ian Bell is no stranger to Edgbaston and will be offering his unique insight to guests at the Men’s IT20 between England and Pakistan.

Announcing his retirement from all forms of cricket in 2020, capping a magnificent 22-year career, Bell started his international journey in 2004 and went on to play over 100 Tests, scoring over 7,000 runs.

His contribution to the famous 2005 Ashes victory earned him an MBE, followed by the ICC’s Emerging Player of the Year award in 2006. Bell’s impressive Test average of 45.00 solidified his legacy as a cricketing force.

Get ready to hear about his legendary time on the pitch and his valuable knowledge of playing international cricket.
