Gavaskar, Ganguly, Dalmiya to give lecture at Oxford

June 27, 2009 20:50 IST

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly, who made his debut in television commentary in the Twenty20 World Cup, has been invited to give lecture at the University of Oxford in England as part of ICC centenary celebrations.

The left-hander, who retired from international cricket last year, along with Indian great Sunil Gavaskar and former International Cricket Council (ICC) president Jagmohan Dalmiya, has been invited by the ICC as guest lecturers for the 'Centenary History Conference'.

Former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd, Angus Fraser and Bob Willis will also give lectures in the two-day conference, which will be held at Nissan Institute of St Antony's College at the University of Oxford.

ICC president David Morgan, Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat and former president Ehsan Mani will also attend the conference as delegates.

Ganguly, along with Lloyd and Willis, will form the panel that will deliberate lecture on 'It's not like it used to be: The Changing Game' in the post-lunch session of the opening day, according to ICC's 'Catch the Spirit' calendar.

Gavaskar will feature in a discussion about 'Half a Century of Cricket' with cricket historians Boria Majumdar and Mihir Bose in the pre-lunch session.
