Photo Gallery: Behind the scenes at Lord’s Cricket Ground

In the build up to England’s first test against West Indies at Lord’s Cricket Ground this summer, I went behind the scenes at the Home of Cricket to see what really goes on during match days at the famous old ground. All these photos are images I captured personally to show spectators what they can look forward to.

From Caribbean Calypso bands and English Jazz musicians to Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts and Champagne galore at the Harris Garden, there is plenty to enjoy and experience at England’s top Cricket venue.

The full gallery, as published on Day One of the Test, is available on Flickr.

YCs help with Test preparation

MCC Head Coach and former England international Mark Alleyne speaks to Lord’s TV about the role of the MCC Young Cricketers in Test match preparation.

Alleyne is in charge of the MCC’s Young Cricketers’, which gives the platform for talented youngsters from around the globe to utilise the world class facilities and intensive playing opportunities at Lord’s Cricket Ground.

The MCC’s new generation have been bowling at the England and West Indies batsman, including former YC Darren Sammy, to gain invaluable experience and give the players ideal preparation ahead of the Test.

Alleyne, born and partly raised in West Indian nation Barbados, also assesses the chances of the tourists, who come to Lord’s after a valiant performance in a Test series against Australia.

Tickets for the Engand v West Indies Test match at Lord’s, starting on Thursday 17 May, are still available for each day’s play.

Sunday tickets can still be booked online, and there are tickets available on the day for each day’s play.
