Sourav Ganguly has been invited to be on the World Cricket Committee of the Marylebone Cricket Club. The former Indian Test captain has been approached by ex-England skipper Mike Brearley, who is the chairman of the committee that discusses issues and developments of the game.
Ganguly, who on Sunday was inducted in the Supreme Court-appointed inquiry panel probing allegations of corruption in Indian Premier League 2013, will be the third Indian captain to be on the MCC committee. Ganguly's teammates Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble have served on this elite body that meet twice a year.
Established in 2006, the MCC committee consists former Test captains Steve Waugh, Michael Vaughan, Andrew Strauss and Kumar Sangakkara. Among many issues, the committee has discussed the universal implementation of the Decision Review System. India continue to oppose DRS.
