Authentic Signed David Gower Photos, Frames, Mounts and Displays
David Gower OBE is a former English cricketer who became the captain of the England cricket team during the 1980s. Described as one of the most stylish left-handed batsmen of the his era, Gower played 117 Test matches and 114 One Day Internationals scoring 8,231 and 3170 runs, respectively. He was one of the most capped and high scoring players for England during his period.
Gower led England during the 1985 Ashes, and his team was victorious; however, two 5–0 whitewashes against the West Indies (in 1984 and 1985–86) reflected poorly on his captaincy, and Gower was replaced in 1986. He was briefly reinstated for the 1989 Ashes series, Gower retired from international cricket in 1993. Nevertheless, he ended with an impressive record in First-class cricket, accumulating 26,339 runs at an average of 40.08, and 53 centuries. Following his retirement, Gower became a successful cricket commentator, with Sky Sports.
