MCC Head of Cricket and captain for the match, John Stephenson, said:
We're delighted that Brian is going to be playing in this match, and it will be a special treat for all those attending to see him bat again. It is fitting that the 200th anniversary of a ground steeped in so much cricket history is going to be graced by one of the greatest batsman to ever play the game. Brian's inclusion adds to what is already going to be a very exciting day with so much entertainment on and off the field, and it would be great to see as many people as possible coming to celebrate the bicentenary of the Home of Cricket.
Brian Lara retired from international cricket in 2007 and says that he's missed playing at Lord's.
"It's always a very nerve racking thing, walking down the staircase throughout the old members making your way into the middle. I've enjoyed playing here it's always been very special...something I've cherished and missed."
Lord's cricket ground is hosting the launch of the Disability Cricket Championships today. The event is aimed at getting more than 600 disabled Londoners to take part in the sport.
Speaking to ITV News, Former England cricketer, Ebony Rainford-Brent said:
"The aim is to give more competitive opportunities for disabled people. At the moment, particularly with cricket there are one-off festivals here and there, but we want to really create competitive opportunities regularly throughout the year."
