Michael Gerald Howat (born Michael Gerald Henderson-Howat) (born 2 March 1958) is an English former cricketer.

Education[edit]

The son of the cricketer and schoolmaster Gerald Howat, he was born in March 1958 at Tavistock. He was educated at Abingdon School from 1968 until 1975.[1] He started playing cricket for the under-13 team before being selected for the second XI in 1971 and the first XI by 1974. He won the Morris Cup for the best all-rounder and broke the School record by claiming 62 wickets in one season. He was also a competent field hockey player.[2] He later studied at Magdalene College, Cambridge.[3]

Cricket career[edit]

While studying at Cambridge, he made his debut in first-class cricket for Cambridge University against Leicestershire at Fenner's in 1977. He played first-class cricket for Cambridge until 1980, making 26 appearances.[4] In his 26 matches, he took 26 wickets with his right-arm medium-fast bowling at a high average of 60.00, with best figures of 3 for 39.[5] With the bat, he scored 194 runs at a batting average of 10.21, with a high score of 32.[6] In addition to playing first-class cricket while at Cambridge, he also made two List A one-day appearances for the Combined Universities cricket team, making a single appearance apiece in the 1978 and 1980 Benson & Hedges Cup.[7]
