MUMBAI - For well over a century, the Lord's Tavern has provided cricket-lovers with a haven for celebration or reflection. Former Pakistani batsman Zaheer Abbas will be honoured at Lord's on September 1. In the history of game there are more than two dozen cricketers (25 to be precise) who have scored 100 centuries in first class cricket. India's little masters Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar don't figure in this list. Asia's lone name in the list is Pakistan's Zaheer Abbas. "Yes, it is a great honour I shall be receiving on September 1," he said from Karachi. "The organisers have arranged a dinner party and a few upcoming English young cricketers will also get awards when they gather for the dinner," he said. Lord's Tavern is located by the Grace Gate entrance to Lord's - off St John's Wood Road. It is considered to be one of the best bars in London. "Sir Viv Richards (WI), Glenn Turner (New Zealand), Geoff Boycott, Dennis Ames, Greame Hick, Mark Ramprakash (all England) are the other 100 century hitters (in first class) who have agreed to remain present," Zaheer Abbas further added. Mark Ramprakash became the 25th player to score 100 first-class centuries. Before him, the feat was lastly performed by Greame Hick (he also played for Zimbabwe) some ten years ago.
