Former Pakistan all-rounder, Abdul Razzaq, has accepted the Committee's offer of Honorary Life Membership of the Club.

Honorary Life Membership is awarded to some of the finest cricketers and men and women associated with the game, and his inclusion make it four players from Pakistan to be awarded Honorary Life Membership within the past 12 months, following Misbah-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi and Younis Khan, who were all awarded the same honour in 2017.

Razzaq, who helped his country to win the ICC Twenty20 World Cup at Lord’s in 2009, played 265 ODIs and 46 Tests and is widely regarded as one of the best all-rounders to represent Pakistan. 

Whilst the 38-year-old was unable to get his name on the Lord's Honours Boards during his career, he did score 53 in a Test match versus England in 2001. 

Razzaq retired from all-forms of cricket in 2016, having hit 7,419 runs and taken 389 wickets across all formats for his country. 

Meanwhile, former Chief Executive & Secretary, Derek Brewer, has also become an Honorary Life Member of the Club.
