The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) have confirmed that former India captain Sourav Ganguly has been awarded an honorary life membership.
Ganguly represented India in 113 Tests, where he scored 7,212 runs, and 311 ODIs, in which he amassed 11,363 runs.
“I’ve got some fantastic memories of playing at Lord’s that I [will] carry with me forever – from the hundred on my debut to the amazing NatWest Trophy Final in 2002,” Ganguly said. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed coming back to the ground both as a player and since I retired, and it’s wonderful to now be part of MCC. I’d like to thank the Club for awarding me this privilege.”
