HOW OLD IS David Gower

David Gower is 64 years and 6 month(s) old. He was born in 1 Apr, 1957. David Ivon Gower OBE is an English cricket pundit and former cricket captain who captained England in the 1980s. Gower played 117 Test matches and 114 One Day Internationals (ODI), amassing 8,231 and 3,170 runs, respectively. During his time with England, he was one of the most capped and high-scoring players. Gower captained England to victory in the 1985 Ashes, but two 5–0 whitewashes against the West Indies (in 1984 and 1985–86) reflected poorly on his captaincy, and Gower was removed in 1986. For the 1989 Ashes series, he was briefly reinstated before being dismissed as captain by Graham Gooch. Gower retired from international cricket in 1993 as a result of their deteriorating relationship. Despite this, he finished his first-class cricket career with an excellent record of 26,339 runs at an average of 40.08 and 53 hundred. In Test cricket, he has a record of 119 straight innings without a duck as of February 2021. Gower became a renowned cricket pundit for Sky Sports after retiring, and he was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame on July 16, 2009.
