Ever wondered why Lord’s is such a special place to play Test cricket?

Ever wondered why players walk through a long room before walking on to the field? What is it that makes Lord’s historic, how tradition mingles with modernity to make the entire setting so pristine?

Here’s a video which might give you a feel of the tradition, and it might help you understand why Lord’s is so revered in cricketing parleys.

Well, it has not been a happy hunting ground for India as they have won just two out of the 17 matches played.

9 Indian batsmen have scored a century at the hallowed turf, and no Sachin Tendulkar is not part of this list.

Vinoo Mankad was the first player to notch up a hundred and Ajinkya Rahane played out an epic in 2014.

Another video which might help you understand the dynamics of the place.

14 Indian bowlers have entered the honour’s board by picking up a five-wicket haul. Mahomed Nissar was the first player to achieve the feat back in 1932 while Ishant Sharma entered the list in 2014 with an amazing spell to hand India the victory.
