Taking the Club’s Champion County Tour into consideration, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara is expected to feature for the MCC alongside Ian Bell in the Emirates T20 Tournament in Dubai on Friday the 18th of March 2016.
Kumar Sangakkara has been in tremendous post retirement form after bagging the Man of the Series award with five back to back match winning half centuries for the Gemini Arabians in the recently concluded Masters Champions League.
Apart from the prestigious MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture in 2011, the only occasion on which he played for MCC was during a Tsunami relief match against the Rest of the World in 2005.
As reported in lords.org, “Kumar’s record in all forms of the game is second to none so it’s fantastic that we’ve managed to secure his services for the Emirates T20 tournament,” said the MCC Head of Cricket John Stephenson.
“In Kumar and Ian Bell we have two of the best players of their generation so I’m sure we’ll stand a good chance in the tournament, and hopefully it will make for an entertaining spectacle,” he added.
