The Home of Cricket
Lord's - the most important single place in world cricket
Location: Lord's Cricket Ground, St John's Wood, NW8 8QN
Description: Lord's has long been seen as the 'Home of Cricket' and the game's spiritual 'headquarters'.
But its importance is not merely historical. In practice it remains, to this day, perhaps the most important single place in world cricket.
Its owner, Marylebone Cricket Club, remains the guardian of both the Laws and the Spirit of Cricket, and MCC sides (which play around 500 games a year) perform a key role in promoting cricket - in Britain and elsewhere.
In addition, Lord's is the home of Middlesex County Cricket Club and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), as well as the European Cricket Council (ECC).
Above all, Lord's is the setting for some of the best cricket in the world. It hosts npower Test matches and NatWest-sponsored one-day internationals plus most of Middlesex's home games, some historic fixtures (such as Oxford v Cambridge) and the village and club finals.
Lords...we love a bit of it - How's that !
