Yes, it is true! Sachin and Dravid would play at the Mecca of Cricket, Lords again! But it won’t be for India. They will be representing Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) team. Sachin will be leading the MCC team while the Australian leggie legend Shane Warne will lead the Rest of the World team. The event will happen on July 5th on the occasion of the 200th year anniversary of MCC.
Sachin was presented with an honorary membership of MCC in year 2010. “It is an honour to be asked to captain MCC in such a prestigious fixture, and I am delighted to accept. Lord’s is such a special place to play cricket and I am very much looking forward to helping celebrate its bicentenary by taking part in this match,” he said.
Speaking about the event, Shane Warne said: “I’m sure the match will be a lot of fun and it will be a pleasure to be part of the bicentenary celebrations of the most famous cricket ground in the world.”
