Brian Lara has received honorary life membership of the MCC.
The former West Indies captain joined cricket icons Sir Garfield Sobers and Sir Vivian Richards as a recipient, and was presented with his membership pass and MCC tie by fellow honourary life member Steve Waugh during the second Investec Ashes Test at Lord’s today.
MCC president Mike Griffith said: “It was a great honour for me, on behalf of the MCC Committee, to offer honorary life membership to Brian Lara in recognition of an outstanding career. He was a true great of the game, who re-wrote the record books with his incredible scoring feats. MCC is delighted Brian has joined the club.”
Lara joins more than 300 MCC honourary life members.
