David Gower OBE, legend of British sport, one of England cricket’s finest players and captains and a highly regarded commentator, will be joining Professor Sir Simon Wessely for a fascinating discussion about; how he got into sport and cricket in particular, his captaincy of the England cricket team, his naturally graceful playing style, which often led his critics to describe him as casual or overly laid back, and his wildlife and conservation projects.
Often described as one of the most stylish left-handed batsmen of all time, David played 117 Test matches and 114 One Day Internationals (ODIs) scoring 8,231 and 3,170 runs, respectively. He is England’s 6th highest capped test player and 4th highest test run scorer of all time.
David has always harboured a love for wildlife and conservation. He is a Patron of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and in 1989 David joined David Attenborough in helping to launch the World Land Trust. He is also a patron of Tusk and Save (the Rhino).
