Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri received the honorary life membership of the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Friday. The SCG awarded the membership to Kohli and Shastri for their contribution to cricket and the ground's history. Apart from Kohli and Shastri, the only other international cricketers who have been granted the honorary membership of the SCG are Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara.
An elated Shastri, after receiving the honour, took to Twitter and posted a picture alongside the Indian skipper. “Great honour and very humbling to get the honorary life membership of the @scg along with @imVkohli #TeamIndia #AUSvIND,” Shastri wrote.
