Alec Stewart and Nasser Hussain have been awarded honorary life membership of MCC. Both players had impressive records at Lord's; Stewart made 1476 runs at 44 and Hussain 861 runs at 50. Hussain, memorably, finished his playing career at Lord's, by guiding England to victory against New Zealand in 2004, with an unbeaten 103.

After receiving the honour, Stewart, who was known for his strong patriotism as a player, said: "It is an honour to be given this recognition by MCC. The Club is the most historic in the world, with a very proud tradition. I am delighted to have been given lifetime membership of MCC."

Nasser Hussain, who wore his heart on his sleeve as captain, was also delighted: "I was thrilled to be made an Honorary Life Member. It is the greatest cricketing accolade I could receive," he said. "I loved everything about playing at Lord's; this will continue my involvement with the historic ground, and give me a long-term association with MCC."
