If British cricket has a home, Lord's could very well be it. And seeing as British cricket is the father or grandfather of most great cricketing nations then this site takes on a rather auspicious air. Over one hundred Test matches have been played at Lord's, the first in 1884 when England defeated Australia by an innings and 5 runs. Australia's first win was in 1888 by 61 runs – so a one day game between these two nations is pretty much a cricketing pilgrimage.
