Pat is the voice of cricket on BBC Radio 5 Live.
Pat, one of BBC Sport’s most independent and intelligent minds, has been a vigorous campaigner against racism for more than 30 years. He was an enthusiastic supporter of the Stop the Tour movement in 1970 which forced the cancellation of South Africa’s tour of England and became a catalyst for change in the republic.
In addition to the World Cup, Pat has commentated on 12 England tours. Besides cricket, Pat also writes a regular column with Brian Clough in the 4-4-2 football magazine, and commentates on football matches for Radio 5 Live.
