Chris Cowdrey | Speaker Biography

Former British cricketer Chris Cowdrey has established himself as a highly respected sports speaker since his retirement in the early 1990s. Hailing from a family of cricketers, Cowdrey is currently one of the most sought-after cricket speakers on the after-dinner speaker circuit. 

During his playing career, Cowdrey enjoyed success representing Kent and was selected for the England tour of India in 1984. Although initially making his debut as a fielder, he was unexpectedly asked to bowl by the England captain. This resulted in Cowdrey becoming one of only 19 England players to take a wicket in their first over. Despite this achievement, Cowdrey did not play for England again until 1988. 

Cowdrey's association with Kent remains strong, and he often works as a cricket speaker for the club. His son, Fabien Cowdrey, also played for Kent County. Chris and his father Colin frequently appear as after-dinner speakers at Kent club events, sharing stories from the 1960s to the present day. 

In addition to his playing career, Cowdrey briefly captained the England national team and appeared in several ODIs from 1984 to 1988. As a cricket speaker, he offers unique insights into international cricket tournaments and his experience as captain. 

Cowdrey has also ventured into the broadcasting world, serving as a broadcaster and commentator for talkSPORT and collaborating on various projects with Sky Sports. To secure Chris Cowdrey's services for your next event, please contact PepTalk.
