The former Sri Lanka skipper, who is also the MCC’s president, has been lined up to play for the MCC in a game against a side including a host of young Flixton players this summer.

The Scarborough & District Under-19 side, that won the Joe Lumb competition, play against the MCC every year at Flixton, and this year the visitors will feature the former Surrey star.

Folkton & Flixton CC will announce more plans to celebrate their 100th birthday in the coming weeks.
