Taufel to deliver MCC lecture on July 24

London, July 23: Former international umpire Simon Taufel of Australia will deliver the 13th MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord's on tomorrow, Wednesday (July 24).

"The highly respected former international official will become the first umpire to deliver the Lecture, and will be the third Australian to speak at the annual event, following Richie Benaud, who delivered the inaugural Cowdrey Lecture in 2001, and Adam Gilchrist in 2009," Lord's website reported on Tuesday.

The 42-year-old Taufel, who won the ICC Umpire of the Year honour for five successive years from 2004 to 2008, retired last year after the ICC World Twenty20 final in Sri Lanka.

Taufel stood in 74 Tests, 174 ODIs and 34 Twenty20 internationals between 1999 and 2012.
