KENT and Eng­land bowl­ing leg­end Derek Un­der­wood was in­stalled as pres­i­dent of MCC yes­ter­day (Wed­nes­day), 40 years af­ter be­com­ing an MCC Mem­ber. In tak­ing over the reins from Mike Brear­ley, Un­der­wood will pre­side over the busiest year in the club’s 221-year his­tory and a fix­ture list that in­cludes host­ing an Ashes Test match, two An­glo-Aus­tralian One-Day In­ter­na­tion­als, much of the ICC World Twenty20 tour­na­ment and 500 other MCC out-matches through­out the Bri­tish Isles and over­seas. Un­der­wood said: “It is in­deed a great hon­our to be­come pres­i­dent of MCC, es­pe­cially to have been in­vited by Mike Brear­ley, for whom I have al­ways had the ut­most re­spect and ad­mi­ra­tion.”
