MCC has today accepted with great reluctance the resignation from the Club's Committee of Sir John Major because of fundamental disagreements over the direction of policy on the Vision for Lord’s; the manner in which decisions have been reached, and their wider implications for the Club.
Sir John said: “For me cricket has been a lifelong and enduring passion and it will remain so. The solace the game has given me in good times and bad, the friendships I have made, and the sheer joy of the game will never fade.
"My decision to resign from the Committee of the world's pre-eminent Cricket Club has been reached with very great sadness and I wish other members of the Committee well in their future deliberations.”
MCC has expressed grateful thanks to Sir John for his substantial contributions during three terms on the Committee.
