London, Apr.1 (ANI): Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist will give the 2009 MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord’s on June 24.

The 37-year-old, still playing Twenty20 cricket for Indian Premier League side Deccan Chargers, will be the youngest person to give the lecture, established in 2001 in memory of former England captain Colin Cowdrey.

Gilchrist was on the winning side in 73 of his 96 Tests, the last of which he played in 2008, and was a key member of the all-conquering Australia team which has dominated world cricket since the late 1990s.

Gilchrist’s average never dipped below 47. (ANI)
