Shahid Afridi said on Tuesday that he was regarded after Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which claims the notorious Lord’s Cricket Ground and is the watchman of the game’s laws, presented a lifetime membership to him.
He expressed gratitude toward the “renowned” MCC for giving him “regard and acknowledgment”. The 41-year-old pledged that he would keep on having his influence in the “advancement” of the “brilliant game both on and off the cricket field”.
Back in 2017, Afridi — alongside Pakistan’s most noteworthy Test run-getter Younis Khan and current Pakistan group mentor Misbah ul Haq — was made an “honorary life member”.
MCC was established in 1787, taking as its home a cricket ground set up by the eager business person Thomas Lord who had organized his first match on the ground on Dorset Fields in Marylebone in the UK. Not long after its’ establishing, the club gave a Code of Laws for advanced cricket, which it keeps on doing as such to date.
