Sri Lankan wicket-keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara will deliver the 11th MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord's on July 4.

The former Sri Lanka captain will be the first person from his country to give the annual lecture and the first current international player to make the address. He replaces Adam Gilchrist as the youngest cricketer to deliver the lecture at Lord's.

"Sangakkara's views on topical matters will be illuminating and people will be looking forward to hearing what he has to say," Martin-Jenkins was quoted as saying in the MCC website.
