Ian Botham will deliver the 14th MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture on September 3, 2014. The lecture is scheduled to begin at 18:30 British Standard Time. The England & Wales Cricket Board is streaming the lecture live on YouTube. You can watch the streaming below.

The Lecture was started in 2001 in memory of the late Lord Cowdrey of Tonbridge. Many legendary cricketers have delivered the Cowdrey Lecture. The last one to do so was umpire Simon Taufel. The first Cowdrey Lecture was delivered by the legendary player and commentator Richie Benaud. Since then, Barry Richards, Clive Lloyd, Sunil Gavaskar and many others have delivered the lecture covering various issues surrounding the game of cricket. Botham is the third Englishman after Christopher Martin Jenkins and Geoffrey Boycott to deliver this lecture.
