Cricket after dinner speaker, David gower



David Gower is a cricket commentator for Sky Sports.

Described as the ‘most stylish left-handed batsman’ of his era, Gower played 117 Test matches and 114 One Day Internationals; scoring 8231 and 3179 runs respectively. Gower was one of the most capped and high scoring players for England during his period.

Leading English during the 1985 Ashes, England were victorious; however, Gower was replaced in 1986. Gower was briefly reinstated for the 1989 Ashes series, before being replaced as captain by Graham Gooch. The unfortunate strained relationship between the pair contributed to Gower retiring from international cricket in 1993.

Nevertheless, Gower ended with an impressive record in first-class cricket accumulating 26,339 runs at an average of 40.08 and 53 centuries. As of February of 2013, Gower holds the record of 119 consecutive innings without registering a duck in Test cricket. Following his retirement, Gower has became a successful commentator with Sky Sports; in July 2009 he was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame.
