MCC v Rest of the World matches

MCC v Rest of the World matches

In the summer of 2014 MCC invited some of the finest men’s and women’s cricketers from across the globe helped celebrate the Bicentenary of the current Lord's Ground in the most fitting style possible – two MCC v Rest of the World matches.

In the men's game, on Saturday 5 July, MCC were captained to victory in front of a full house by India legend Sachin Tendulkar, with Australia's Aaron Finch and Saeed Ajmal starring in the win.

The women’s match, featuring some of the finest names in the game and representing eight nationalities, was won by 41 runs by Rest of the World on Monday 19 May.

Lord’s has staged MCC v Rest of the World matches before – indeed for the Club’s Bicentenary in 1987 the current MCC President Mike Gatting captained the Club and hit a brilliant century against an attack featuring Imran Khan, Kapil Dev and Courtney Walsh.

Gatting himself managed the MCC XI for the men's match, while the Rest of the World XI were managed by ex-South Africa all-rounder and MCC World Cricket committee member Shaun Pollock.
