New Delhi: Former Indian women’s Cricket team skipper Anjum Chopra on Wednesday has been conferred with an honourary life membership by the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). She has become a first Indian women Cricketer to get the prestigious honour.

She has got the honour along with former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan.

What Anjum said:

  • Two months back I got a mail from the Lord’s office asking me whether I would like to accept the honorary life membership of MCC.
  • After I replied, they sent me an acceptance letter.
  • When Zaheer’s name came up as the new MCC Life Member, I saw the list and found my name there.
  • It feels good when you see the names of the Indian cricket’s legends like Sunil Gavaskar, Gundappa Viswanath, who have been bestowed with the honour of life membership of MCC.

Other Highlights:

  • Anjum has played 12 Tests, 127 ODIs and 18 T20s in her celebrated career.
  • She has hit 548 runs with 4 fifties in the longest format of the game, Tests.
  • In ODIs, Anjum has claimed 2856 runs with one ton and 18 half-centuries.

Presently, Anjum works as Cricket commentator and analyst for various channels.
