Cowdrey: Test Cricket's Century Man
Former England captain the late Michael Colin Cowdrey was born in Bangalore on 24 December 1932 and died of a heart attack at Littlehampton, Sussex on 4 December 2000. Cowdrey, who was the first cricketer to play in 100 Test matches and held the records for the most runs by a batsman and most catches by a fielder in Test cricket, toured Australia a record six times between 1954-55 and 1974-75. Cowdrey played his 114th and final Test match in 1975, when aged 42, he was called up as an emergency replacement during the tour of Australia. He was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1972, a Knight in 1992, a Life Peer by the cricket-loving Prime Minister John Major in 1997 and was posthumously inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on 24 June 2009. After his retirement in 1976, Cowdrey worked closely behind the scenes at Kent, became President of the MCC in 1986 and was Chairman of the International Cricket Council from 1989-1993.
