Former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith received yet another prestigious honor as he has been elected an Honorary Life Member of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). MCC, who are known as the custodians of the game’s laws, took to Twitter to make the exclusive announcement.
The highly regarded Smith scored 6,989 runs in ODI cricket for South Africa including ten centuries. He expressed his excitement for being given such an honor and looked forward to making more memories at the iconic venue.
The vastly experienced southpaw was a force to be reckoned with in the Test arena as well where he finished his career with 9,265 runs. He is one of the few Proteas batsmen to have achieved the special feat for hitting a century at the Home of Cricket – back in 2008. Smith retired as one of the most successful captains in the history of cricket across all formats.
