Our Legends

Michael Vaughan OBE was ranked one of the best batsmen in the world following the 2002/03 Ashes, in which he scored 633 runs, including three centuries. He was the captain of the England team when they regained the Ashes in 2005, eighteen years after having last won the trophy.

Vaughan captained England in 51 Tests between 2003 and 2008, winning 26 (a national record) and losing 11; England won all seven home Tests of the 2004 summer under Vaughan, and the pinnacle of his captaincy career came with a 2–1 victory in the 2005 Ashes, England’s first Ashes victory since 1986/87.

Michael is also a Laureus Ambassador.

Jason ‘Dizzy’ Gillespie made his Test debut against the West Indies at Sydney in 1996 and his One Day International debut against Sri Lanka at Colombo in the Singer World Series in 1996.

Gillespie took 259 wickets in 71 Tests (at an average of 26.13) making him Australia’s sixth-highest wicket-taker and giving him the 14th best bowling average for Australian bowlers who have taken more than a hundred wickets.

Gillespie was also useful with the bat and in the second Test match against Bangladesh at Chittagong on 19 April 2006, He set the world record (201 not out) for the highest individual nightwatchman.
