Congratulating Kumar Sangakkara on his appointment as MCC President


The LBW Trust congratulates Patron Kumar Sangakkara on his nomination as the next President of the MCC, the first non-British to receive the honour since the Club was founded in 1787. His one-year tenure will begin October, having been nominated by the incumbent, Anthony Wreford.


Sangakkara, who retired from playing in 2017 and is already an honorary life member of MCC and has sat on its influential world cricket committee for the past seven years, said: “It is a huge honour to be named the next president of MCC and it is a role that I am thoroughly looking forward to. For me, MCC is the greatest cricket club in the world, with its global reach and continued progress for cricket on and off the pitch.”

No doubt, in a World Cup and Ashes year, he will have a great role to play as President Designate and we wish him all the best in this next phase of his illustrious cricketing career.
