The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) sponsored the first-ever Iftar event at Lord’s Cricket Ground, which was attended by several high-profile figures. Aatif Nawaz and Tameena Hussain, two well-known cricket commentators, hosted the event in the stadium’s famed Long Room.
George Dobell, a well-known cricket writer, and Azeem Rafiq, a former Yorkshire cricketer, were among the guests. The ceremony was also attended by MCC President Clare Connor and the Pakistan Supporter’s Group.

Here are some of the reactions of the attendees:
The celebration was a massive success, with everyone enjoying the food and the festivities. The educational event was well-received by those who heard about the importance of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.
This was the first time an Iftar function was held on the premises of the stadium. The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) hosted an Iftar gathering at the Nursery Pavilion, which overlooks the Lord’s Nursery Ground, last year.
