Hubert Doggart was a stylish middle-order batsman who looked to have a sparkling career ahead of him when he burst onto the scene at Cambridge in the late 1940s. He made 215 not out on his first-class debut, against Lancashire, in 1948, ending the summer with 1169 runs. In 1949 he scored over 2000 runs for Cambridge and Sussex, averaging over 45. He began 1950 is less impressive form, but nevertheless was picked to play for England against West Indies but struggled against Rahmadhin and Valentine and was dropped. That summer he captained Cambridge - he also represented the university at football, squash, racquets and fives. After leaving Cambridge he became a teacher at Winchester (he subsequently became headmaster at King's School, Bruton). That limited his time for cricket, although he continued to play for Sussex on and off until 1961 (he did find time to captain them in 1954). He later became involved in cricket administration, firstly with the MCC committee, then as MCC President in 1981-82, also serving as president of the Cricket Council.
