Stephen Fry was appointed the next president Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC).

Famed for his work on stage, screen and in print, Fry was only the second non-cricketer to deliver the prestigious Cowdrey Lecture last year and has been a member since 2011.

He was nominated by the incumbent president for the post, which rotates annually Klara Connor at the AGM on Wednesday.

Fry said: “I am honored and proud to be nominated as the next President of MCC. It’s a club that’s known around the world for what it represents in football and to be given the opportunity to play that role is really humbling.

“I thank Clare for this incredible opportunity and I look forward to supporting her as President-Elect over the summer before starting my own innings in the fall.”

MCC owns Lord’s Cricket Ground and is responsible for the Laws of the Game.
