Outstanding cricketer and communicator.


From his striking Test debut in 1978 against Pakistan at Edgbaston, hitting his first delivery in Test Cricket for an elegant four, to his untimely retirement, David Gower was one of the most watchable batsman of his generation.

He is the second highest test match runs scorer for England after Graham Gooch, but ahead of Geoffrey Boycott.

His career includes 117 Test Matches, and 114 One Day internationals. He made 8231 test runs including 18 test match hundreds.

David has written several books including an autobiography and is now a broadcaster and journalist, commentating on both BBC and Sky TV. After a couple of years as the Sunday Express cricket correspondent, he is now a columnist for the Sunday Telegraph.

His interests include safaris and wildlife conservation in which he is actively involved as a Trustee of the David Shepherd Conservation Foundation as a patron.
