Retiring Black Caps captain Brendon McCullum will deliver the annual MCC Spirit of Cricket lecture at Lord's in June.

The prestigious lecture was first delivered by Richie Benaud in 2001, with previous notable speakers including Desmond Tutu, Imran Khan, Kumar Sangakkara and Ian Botham.

McCullum becomes the second New Zealander to give the address, after Martin Crowe in 2006.

The MCC has also announced that McCullum will join its World Cricket Committee - a think tank that examines a wide variety of issues affecting the game.
