England v Australia, 2nd Investec Test, Lord's

Notes from a memorable first day at Lord's

Andrew Alderson in the New Zealand Herald soaks in the atmosphere in the run-up to the second Test, from MCC members queuing up outside Lord's from 2am in the morning to a few delicious culinary treats.

The Lord's lunch and afternoon tea - the lamb off the bone in a rich tomato sauce made you grateful to be a carnivore. The sponge cake for afternoon tea was as good as Grandma's efforts out of the coal range when you were a kid.
