The International Cricket Council has expressed its sadness at the passing for Mr. Hubert Doggart, who was the ICC Chairman in 1981-82 by virtue of being the President of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) during that period.

“The ICC is saddened by the news of Mr Doggart’s passing. He was a man of great repute and strong administrative skills who made useful contribution as a cricketer and administrator. On behalf of the entire cricket family, we offer our condolences to Mr Doggart’s friends and family,” the ICC said in a statement.

Mr Doggart represented England in two Tests against the Windies in 1950, scoring 22 and 29 in Manchester, and zero and 25 at Lord’s.

He had a more successful career as a first-class cricketer, when he scored 10,054 runs for Cambridge University and Sussex from 1948 to 1961. On his first-class debut, he scored 215 not out against Lancashire.
