For the first time in 233 years, MCC will get women president, Clare Connor to replace Kumar Sangakkara

Clare Connor to become MCC President: Claire Connor is going to be the first female president in MCC’s 233-year history.

Clare Connor to become MCC President: Cricket rules-making organization Marylebone Cricket Club ie MCC’s 200-year-old history is going to change. Yes, for the first time a woman is going to get the command of the post of MCC President. Former England women’s team captain Clare Connor is now taking over as president of Marylebone Cricket Club. She will replace Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara.

Actually, Merlebone Cricket Club (MCC) is a cricket club based in London, which was founded in 1787. In this way, it has been 233 years since this club was formed, but for the first time a woman is being made president of MCC. However, Clare Connor will have to wait more than a year to hold this position. Claire Conor will replace Kumar Sangakkara, who is currently the chairman of MCC, in October next year.

Kumar Sangakkara himself announced the nomination of Claire Conor, managing director of women’s cricket at the England and Wales Cricket Board. At the annual meeting of the General Assembly on Wednesday, it was told via video conferencing that Claire Conor would hold the post of president of the MCC. Conor will take up the post on October 1 next year, but before that he needs to get the approval of the members of the Merrillbone Cricket Club.

Kumar Sangakkara’s tenure was coming to an end this year but due to the corona virus epidemic, his tenure has been extended for a year. In such a situation, he will be relieved from this post next year and there is every possibility of Conor getting his place. Claire Conor has said about this, ‘I am very happy to be nominated for the next MCC President’s post. Cricket has given me a lot and now this honor is a big thing for me.
