Celebrating Cricket’s Bicentenary

By Linda Tancs

Lord’s, the home of cricket in London, celebrates 200 years of sport, having hosted the first known cricket match in 1814 between MCC and Hertfordshire.  To commemorate the bicentenary of this venerated sporting venue, eager fans are awaiting this Saturday’s star-studded lineup in the MCC versus Rest of the World match.  Luminaries include Sachin Tendulkar, Shane Warne, Brian Lara, Saeed Ajmal and Shahid Afridi.  Can’t make the match?  Visit the historic grounds and museum for a peek at the largest cricket collection in the world.  The site is  just a five minutes’ walk from St. John’s Wood tube station.
