■ Former England cricket captain Mike Gatting has been getting around the City charity sporting circuit lately. Not only did he complete annual Standard Chartered Great City race last week – and blindfolded too – he then hopped straight on his bike for five days of cycling – from Chester-le-Street to Lord’s cricket ground – as part of the Investec Ashes Challenge. Gatting made it back to Lord’s yesterday, after pedalling the 340 miles around all the Ashes Test match venues, to raise money for youth cricket charity The Lord’s Taverners. “There were hills that I’d probably struggle to drive a car up,” Gatting said at the finish line. Still, it is not all work and no play: the cricketer told The Capitalist he will be relaxing at his old Lord’s stomping ground today watching the start of the second Ashes Test – hopefully with his feet up.
