The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) announced on Monday that it would sponsor the Test and one-day series between Pakistan and Australia in England in July. This will be the first time the MCC, owners of the Lord’s Cricket Ground, has sponsored an international series in its 223-year history.

MCC’s secretary, Keith Bradshaw, said: “MCC is committed to the health of Test cricket, and by sponsoring the series and hosting the first Test, the club is supporting Pakistani cricket at a time when the country's Test calendar has been decimated.”
