Viru, Murali to lead MCC in Abu Dhabi next month

India’s Test discard Virender Sehwag and Sri Lanka’s legendary off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan will lead Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) in its ceremonial cricket matches, scheduled toi be held in Abu Dhabi next month. While Sehwag will captain MCC in their four-day match against English champion county Durham, Murali will lead the MCC team in the preceding Emirates Twenty20 event.
Reacting to the development, Sehwag, known for his destructive batting, said he was honoured to be leading MCC in a match that acts as a ‘curtain-raiser’ to the forthcoming English season.
“I was delighted to be asked to play in this match, and being able to captain the MCC side makes it even more of a privilege,” said the 35-year-old, who has scored 8,586 runs at an average of nearly fifty with 23 hundreds in 104 Tests.
