TATENDA TAIBU TO PROMOTE AUTOBIOGRAPHY AT LIVERPOOL CRICKET CLUB

TUESDAY 4TH JUNE

Tatenda Taibu, in partnership with Futura Sports, is hosting a 'meet the author' event to promote his new autobiography 'Keeper of Faith' during Lancashire's county game at Liverpool Cricket Club next week (4th June).

The former Zimbabwe skipper, who played over 200 times for his country, and also holds the record as the youngest ever Test captain, will be talking about his tough upbringing in Harare’s Highfield township, his early breakthrough into international cricket as an 18 year old and dealing with significant controversy and conflict, which ultimately led to his early retirement at the age of 29.

The book also lifts the lid on a number of startling chapters in his life, ranging from death threats to his family to his uncovering of serious fraud within Zimbabwe Cricket, which put him at odds with an administration that became increasingly difficult to work with or trust at any level.

Coming full circle and having witnessed - and played a part in - his country’s more recent endeavours both on and off the field, including their near-failure to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, Tatenda is also well-placed to offer his views on the current state of play, as well as the wider political picture in his beloved Zimbabwe.

Tatenda is well known in local cricket circles having played for Hightown St Mary's CC and now Formby CCs. 

This 'up close and personal' event, which will include an open Q&A session with the audience, is a great opportunity to find out more about the player and his fascinating life and career. Tickets, which include a copy of his new book, are priced at just £15 and are strictly limited, so please do book early (using the link below) to reserve your place.

Venue: Liverpool Cricket Club (Dougall Lounge)
Date: Tuesday 4th June
Time: 6.30pm - 8pm
Ticket price: £15

Tatenda will also sign any books and is available for photos etc.
