Daily Desk: MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) is going to get the first woman president in the history of 233 years. Former England women’s cricket captain Claire Connor is set to become president of the organization.

Connor, 43, is currently the managing director of the women’s cricket division of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). He will take over as the President of MCC on October 1, 2021. Former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara will be replaced by Claire Connor.

Last year, Kumar Sangakkara became the first non-British president in the history of the MCC. The term of office of the President of the MCC is usually one year. The MCC, known as the governing body of cricket law after World War II, has not seen anyone in its second consecutive term as president. However, due to the coronavirus, Sangakkara is in the presidency for the second time in a row.

Connor, who will replace Sangakkara next year, has played 18 Tests, 93 ODIs and two T20Is for England. “I am very honored to be nominated as the next president of the MCC,” said Connor. Cricket has already enriched my life. And now I get this great honor. ‘
