LORDS CRICKET GROUND, LONDON, ENGLAND

LORDS CRICKET GROUND (LONDON)

Lord’s Cricket Stadium is commonly known as Lord’s. It is situated in London, England. In 1814, this third ground of Thomas Lord was opened, soon becoming the principal venue, as cricket became the world leading sport in 19th century.  Marylebone Cricket Club owns the stadium and it is home of England Cricket Board.

This stadium is capable of holding 30000 visitors at single time. English government has developed proposals to increase the capacity of the stadium

The floodlights here are unconventional compared to other cricket stadiums, in that the light pillars are very low in height. This is to avoid aircraft from the nearby Chandigarh airport colliding with the light pillars. That is the reason behind the stadium having 16 floodlights.

LORDS STADIUM(LONDON)Pitch Report

The pitch of the Lords Cricket Stadium mainly aids bowlers, and batsmen struggle, in particular opening batsmen. Fast bowlers get a tremendous swing, which makes it very hard for batmen on top as the new ball moves a lot. This pitch also gives fast bowlers additional rebound. The pitch also helps spin bowlers, providing spin bowlers well spinning and bounce. Batsmen also get most runs but domination of bowlers increases nowadays. The pitch is dry and have grass, which is perfect for both batsmen and bowlers. Batting conditions are excellent and average scores of 300+ in test matches are mostly common. The wicket is more flattered recently. The task is quite difficult for spin bowlers.

In test matches, the spin bowlers can be of great help to the team. In summer day, the dry flat spot favors spinners in Test and ODI matches, and the winning teams prefer to bat first. Spin bowlers can help the third and fourth innings to decrease the chase because the flat pitch and footprint cause a good spin.

LORDS STADIUM(LONDON)Pitch Report

Test Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

For fast bowlers as well as spin bowlers, bowling in this venue is much enjoyable and most bowlers get help from the pitch. In the first days of the test, it is a little easier to bat this pitch, but once the match moves onto the final days of the test match, the pitch will help fast bowlers more and more swinging and bouncing from the pitch. The spin bowlers get turns well and also bounce, and the spin attack on the 4th and 5th days of the test match is very dangerous. In the first innings the pitch is a utopia for batsmen, so the team which wins the toss generally decides to bat first to achieve a winning score. We can conclude that the average score in the 4 Innings in the last 5 test matches on Lord’s Cricket Ground is comparatively lower to the first but higher in second innings, and with each of the subsequent innings, the average score is getting less. It is obvious that the first two innings can be easily scored as the swing is smaller. The dry spot and the flat wicket are useful to the spin bowlers when they bowl on those decks.In last 5 matches, 2 matches have very low totals in 4th innings. As because the target was low. In the last 21 Test matches held here, the team batting first has won 12 matches, 5 matches won by the team batting second and 4 matches was drawn.

Here are test matches average scores of both Innings at LORDS ground:

Test Matches 1st Innings Average Score – 306 runs

Test Matches 2nd Innings Average Score – 325 runs

Test Matches 3rd Innings Average Score – 269 runs

Test Matches 4th Innings Average Score –155 runs

LORDS STADIUM(LONDON)Pitch Report

ODI Match Pitch Report and Toss Factor:

Although this is a batting pitch, ODI teams prefer bowling first because of the dew effect. The ground has dry pitch and it supports batmen and spin bowlers, and also slightly grassy, which thus supports seam bowlers. Therefore, it is important to decide whether to bat or bowl first in the pitch. The pitch condition for one day International matches is similar to the test matches. The teams batting first and teams batting second have scored almost the same run. As of now the ground has hosted 15 matches in the last 10 years where the team batting first has won 11 matches and the team chasing the target has won 4 matches.

Here are last 5 ODI matches average scores of both Innings at LORDS ground:

ODI Matches 1st Innings Average Score – 272 runs

ODI Matches 2nd Innings Average Score – 203 runs
