India’s first Test team preparing to play the first ever Test in 1932 at Lord’s

Team India will play its 18th Test at the Mecca of cricket, the Lord’s cricket ground in London. India has won only two Tests at Lord’s out of the 17 played so far and despite losing the first match at Birmingham on the current tour of 2018, India is looking good to make a match out of it at Lord’s in the 2nd Test.

India’s highest score at Lord’s has been 454 in 1990. Dilip Vengsarkar has scored the most runs for Team India at the ground and has the second highest score by an Indian on the ground.

The present Lord’s ground has a legacy that goes back to 1814 when it was constructed and hosted its first Test in 1884. The old Lord’s ground had hosted the first match in 1805 between Eton and Harrow. The current ground first hosted a first-class match between MCC and St John’s Wood club between 13 and 15 July 1814.

India played their very first Test match at Lord’s on June 25, 1932, and since then, India’s match at Lord’s has brought unprecedented popularity with all the eyes on the encounter. There have been 11 centuries by Indian batsmen at the Lord’s ground and Team COC brings to you five of the most memorable performances by Indian batsmen at the Lord’s ground, on the eve of India’s Test against England on the 2018 Tour.
