Video - Lord's Taverners Host Legendary Test Captains

The Lord's Taverners hosted 21 legendary Test captains in September, including Sir Garry Sobers, Sir Vivian Richards and Mushtaq Mohammad.

Those former captains feature in this video paying tribute to the work that the Lord's Taverners does as the UK's leading recreational cricket and youth disability charity.

Former Australian leg-spinner Richie Benaud and West Indian all-rounder Sir Garry Sobers were among those in attendance, taking the opportunity to catch up with the likes of Mahela Jayawardene and Andrew Strauss.

The group of captains were treated to a private dinner on Monday evening before attending a public event the next day at The Grange Rochester where members of the press were given the opportunity to talk captaincy with some of the best practitioners in the business.

They were also on hand to promote the work of the Lord’s Taverners, which will this year donate over £3 million to give young people, particularly those with special needs, a sporting chance.
