Former England and Essex cricket captain Graham Gooch OBE will deliver the third Excellence in Sport free public lecture at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge on Tuesday, 12 April (5.45pm). Gooch, who became England’s batting coach in 2012, enjoyed an incredible career in elite cricket after making his Test debut in 1975. He is still one of the leading run scorers in top-class cricket, having amassed almost 45,000 first-class runs and over 100 first-class centuries. Gooch is England’s second highest Test match run scorer with 8,900 runs and holds the record for England’s third highest Test match score (333 v India at Lord’s in 1990). Gooch received an honorary degree from Anglia Ruskin in 2006 and was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame in 2009. The free event, which will include a Q&A session, has been organised by Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences (CCSES) and Active Anglia. Register for the event at:
