The names tell you the amount of class and number of runs and wickets accumulated in the MCC team. To be led by Brendon McCullum, one of New Zealand’s most accomplished captains, the MCC team is nowhere close to be beaten by Afghanistan, who as a team apparently have lesser experience than any of the individuals in the opposition side. Nevertheless, it will be an interesting competition as youth will take on experience, enthusiasm will take on calm, excitement will take on understanding of the game. There will be passion in the Afghanistan team to make their mark playing well against MCC, while the greats will play for sheer pride and love of the game that they have decorated with their contribution during their professional life.
