Afghanistan v MCC at Lords

Description

Come and witness an historic fixture for Afghanistan as they play the MCC for their debut at Lords - the Home of Cricket. With former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum leading the MCC side and rising Afghan players Mohammad Nabi and Hamid Hassan on the field it promises to be a great spectacle. 

MCC President and Afghan Connection Patron, Matthew Fleming, is a driving force behind the Club’s work in Afghanistan and himself travelled to Jalalabad in May 2009 to oversee the first coaching camps held under the MCC Spirit of Cricket banner.

He said: "I am thrilled that we will be welcoming Afghanistan to Lord’s this summer. I have seen first-hand the talent and passion for cricket the nation has, and this fixture can only be a good thing for the ongoing development of Afghan cricket."

"It is the latest landmark on a very exciting journey for Afghan cricket, and MCC will need to field an extremely strong side in order to compete."
