Welcoming a Lord’s Legend to XPO
We’re delighted that our very special guest, Michael Vaughan OBE will be joining us at the end of the day. Michael is one of the world’s greatest batsmen and assured his place in cricket history when he captained England’s historic Ashes victory in 2005, some 18 years after England last won the trophy. In total, Michael captained England in 51 Test matches between 2003 and 2008, winning 26 (a national record). Today he is known for being one of cricket’s most respected commentators.
Michael will be joining us for photos and signing, as well as providing us with an exclusive insight into the ‘transformation’ he experienced during his cricketing career.
