Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) is deeply saddened to announce the death of the Club’s much loved former President, Edward Dexter CBE. After a recent illness he passed away peacefully in the Compton Hospice in Wolverhampton at midday yesterday, surrounded by his family.

Ted was a cherished husband, father and grandfather and one of England’s greatest ever cricketers. He was captain in 30 of his 62 Test matches and played the game with the same sense of adventure and fun that captures much of the story of his remarkable life.

Through his own PR Agency, he became a pioneer in cricket’s digital technology revolution. In June this year, he was inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame.

We kindly request that the privacy of Susan, his wife, and Genevieve and Tom, his daughter and son, is respected at this difficult time.
