The Club is delighted to be hosting the 2023 MCC Members' Dinner on Thursday December 7 in the Members' Dining Room. Hosted by eminent cricket broadcaster, Tim Lane and featuring special guest speakers, the evening is a must for all cricket enthusiasts.
The dinner will include canapes upon arrival in the Long Room, followed by a three-course dinner inclusive of beverages (beer, wine and sparkling) and a wonderful line up of entertainment celebrating the great game of cricket in the Members' Dining Room.Our first special guest speaker for the evening is a favourite amongst Australian cricket fans, for both his sense of humour and whole-hearted approach to the game – Mike Whitney AM who will propose the toast to cricket.
Mike played for Australia in the late 80’s and early 90’s. He was Australia’s most economical bowler in the 1992 World Cup and in the same season took 17 wickets in three Tests against India. Mike became a celebrated number 11 batsman in the 1987 Boxing Day Test, surviving 18 deliveries and holding off Sir Richard Hadlee to help secure a famous draw for Australia against New Zealand. Since his retirement, Mike has worked in the media hosting a number of TV shows and last year called it quits as Host of Sydney Weekender after almost 30 years!
Our second speaker who will be responding to the toast is Glenn McGrath AM. McGrath is an Australian former international cricketer whose career spanned for 14 years. He was a fast-medium pace bowler and is considered one of the greatest bowlers of all time, and a leading contributor to Australia's domination of world cricket from mid-1990s to the late 2000's.
Glenn McGrath AM has an unbelievable cricket story but also does incredible work through the McGrath Foundation, a breast cancer support and education charity. We look forward to hearing Glenn's story at the annual Members' Dinner.
