Bank of England trying to draw parallels between finance and cricket..

Wow! Bank of England’s One Bank Seminar series has invited former West Indian ace Michael Holding to give a talk.

Michael Holding, former West Indies cricketer and current Sky Sports commentator, will join us for the next One Bank Flagship seminar on 14 September.  

The Bank’s Chief Economist, Andy Haldane, will join Michael to draw parallels between the world of cricket and finance – discussing issues of leadership, diversity and team-building.

Michael, nicknamed Whispering Death due to his silent yet fast bowling prowess, starred on the West Indies team from 1975-1987. During this time he earned 249 wickets in 60 tests, and played a further 102 one day internationals. Michael was named Wisden Cricketer of the Year in 1977, and is also credited with bowling “the greatest over in Test history”, against English batsman Geoff Boycott in 1981. 

Since retiring from his sterling international career, Michael has released two books ‘Whispering Death’ and ‘No Holding Back’ and has moved on to become a popular TV commentator, working with Sky Sports in the UK since 1995.

The seminar starts in a little above 1 hr from the time of posting.

Will be interesting to see this for sure..
