The LBW Trust is thrilled that Wasim Akram has agreed to be the chief guest at the annual fund-raising dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground on March 11, 2017.
Wasim is considered by many pundits to be the greatest left-arm fast bowler of all time. Mentored by Imran Khan, Wasim mastered ever aspect of fast seam and swing bowling. For those with a love of statistics Wasim captured 414 wickets at 23.6 in 104 Test matches and a phenomenal 502 wickets at 23.52 in limited-over international matches. He captained Pakistan in 25 Tests.
A charismatic soul and gifted public speaker Wasim will be accompanied by his Australian wife Shaniera who heads the Akram Foundation. He will be in conversation with Mike Coward.
As a guest of the LBW Trust for International Woman’s week Dr Kakenya Ntayia, will give a powerful insight into her life and dreams. A proud Maasai woman who has defied all odds, broken all the rules, and gained an education, she made an extraordinary bargain with her father at the age of 7 not to marry but to go to school. Today she is seen as a global light and visionary in education for a better world.
The evening will be hosted by Stephanie Brantz, Australian sports presenter. Stephanie began her television career in 2000 on SBS, and has since worked on the Nine Network, Fox Sports and is now on ABC.
Please save the date for what promises to be a very entertaining and insightful evening and help the LBW Trust in the continued funding of tertiary education for disadvantaged students in cricket’s developing world.
