Geoffrey Boycott

Geoffrey Boycott is one of Test Match Special’s most outspoken summarisers.

An outstanding schoolboy cricketer, Geoffrey Boycott quickly graduated through club cricket for Ackworth, Barnsley and Leeds, to join the Yorkshire team at the age of 21.

He began an illustrious Test career only two years later in the first Test of the summer against Australia. He went on to score 8,114 runs in an 18-year Test career spanning 108 Test matches.

His partnership with Jonathan Agnew has led them to be described as the 'Lennon and McCartney' of cricket broadcasting. He regularly features on the daily Test Match Special podcast.
