Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi claimed on Tuesday that he was honored after receiving the lifetime membership of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), which owns the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground and is the guardian of the sport’s laws.
While taking to twitter Shahid Afridi said, “a big honor to receive Marylebone Cricket Club lifetime membership,”
The former Pakistan captain thanked the “prestigious” MCC for giving him “respect and recognition”.
The 41-year-old vowed that he would continue to play his part in the “promotion” of the “wonderful sport both on and off the cricket field”.
Earlier in 2017, Afridi along with Pakistan’s highest Test run-getter Younis Khan and current Pakistan team coach Misbah ul Haq was made an “honorary life member”.
