MCC has announced a further £1 million investment in ground improvements at Lord's, less than a year after an $8.2 million refurbishment of the pavilion.

The Indoor School and the Mound Stand will benefit from the expenditure. The School will have a new Supergrasse playing surface installed, while the Mound Stand, which was opened in 1987, will have its distinctive marquee-style rook replaced as the existing structure has reached the end of its lifespan.

"These projects reflect MCC determination to continue investing in Lord's, to ensure that our world-famous ground retains its world-class status," explained Roger Knight, the MCC's secretary and chief executive. "We want the ground to look at its best both for the coming cricket seasons and, looking further ahead, for the archery competition in the London Olympics of 2012."

Both projects will start at the end of the summer and are expected to be completed by the start of next season.
