Anjum Chopra, ex- Indian women’s team captain, has awarded an honorary life membership of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), together with former men’s team stalwarts Zaheer Khan and Virender Sehwag.
She is the first Indian woman cricketer to get the prominent life membership of MCC.
The 39 year old Anjum played 127 ODIs, 12 Tests and 18 T20s for India. She had scored 548 runs in tests with 4 half centuries and 2856 runs with one century and 18 half centuries in One Day Internationals.
Anjum now works for various channels as cricket analyst. She said, “”It’s been an honor. Two months ago, I got a mail from the Lord’s office asking me whether I would like to accept the honorary life membership of MCC. After I replied, they sent me an acceptance letter. Two days ago, when Zaheer’s name came up as the new MCC life member, I saw the list and found my name there.”
