India's Harbhajan Singh and Javagal Srinath on Tuesday joined 16 other cricketers who were given the Honorary Life Membership (HLM) this year.
Eight of the 12 Test-playing nations are represented within this year's list, which includes some of the most recognisable names in the modern game, MCC said in a statement.
Harbhajan couldn't attend the ceremony in person as he is currently in a bio-secure environment as part of Kolkata Knight Riders' campaign in the IPL.
Fascinatingly, acting wasn’t the biggest challenge Harbhajan has ever faced, he says, and adds that the pressure he faced while shooting wasn’t remotely close to the stress on the cricket field.

KKR registered a win in their opening match of the IPL 2021 season after defeating SunRisers Hyderabad by 10 runs on Sunday.
Dinesh Karthik has said picking spinner Harbhajan Singh was not easy and he also added that the veteran looks like a 'different man' now.
Singh also accepted that not having played a lot of cricket in the interim did make a difference when it came to the dynamics of auction.
Looking at his (Virat's) form, from the last four-to-five years, he has hit that purple patch and he is definitely one of those toughest batsmen that you will come across as a bowler.
Harbhajan will be playing for Chennai Super Kings this time after donning the Mumbai Indians jersey since the inception of the IPL.
