Zaheer Khan has 18 wickets from six international games at Lord's.

Zaheer Khan, former India pacer, has been inducted as an Honorary Life Member of the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) on Friday(September 2). He is the third Indian player to receive the distinction this year after Virender Sehwag and Anjum Chopra.

"Zaheer Khan was a fantastic servant to cricket in India and an integral part of their very successful side for many years," John Stephenson, MCC Head of Cricket, said in a statement. "For this reason the Club is very pleased to award him with Honorary Life Membership.

"He was always great to watch when he played at Lord's and we look forward to having him back here as an MCC Member," he added.

Honorary life membership is awarded by the MCC committee to individuals in recognition of their contribution to cricket and projects surrounding the game, often over a very long period.

Zaheer retired from international and first-class cricket in October 2015, having taken 311 wickets in 92 Tests and 282 wickets in 200 One-Day Internationals. He has played three Tests at Lord's, bagging 11 wickets at an average of 26.36. He has also played three ODIs at the venue and has seven wickets to his name.

The former Indian pacer, the current captain of the Delhi Daredevils, continues to participate in the Indian Premier League.
