Shaun Pollock

Shaun Pollock OIS

Add To Speakers List

One of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, Shaun Pollock is a former captain of the South Africa cricket team who was part of a formidable bowling partnership along with Allan Donald during the mid-90s and early noughties. In total, Shaun played over 100 Test matches and more than 300 ODIs for his country and is regarded as one of the greatest players to ever pull on a South Africa shirt. Now, he works as a popular cricket commentator and pundit, as well as being one of the most highly sought-after cricket speakers in the country.

Shaun made his international debut for South Africa in 1995, and soon became one of the first names on the team sheet. His immense bowling talent saw him break numerous records, including becoming the first-ever South African player to take 400 Test wickets. After the match-fixing controversy that saw former captain Hansie Cronje banned from cricket for life, South Africa was looking to replace him with a steady pair of hands. Shaun was a perfect choice and took the captaincy in 2000.

In domestic cricket, Shaun represented KwaZulu-Natal, Warwickshire, Dolphins, Mumbai Indians and Durham, and was a hit among fans at every team he represented. When booked as a cricket speaker, Shaun can share a whole host of exceptional stories and anecdotes from both his international and domestic career that leave audiences wanting more time and time again.

Since retiring from the sport in 2008, Shaun has worked as a popular cricket commentator on SuperSport’s coverage of the South African cricket team. Here, his expert insight and views of the sport help inform audiences across the world on the latest going on within the sport – something he can also bring to every event he attends.

Among the most popular cricket after-dinner speakers in the industry, if you’d like to book Shaun Pollock for your next event contact Evolve today.
