Lords.org takes a look at a few things which may not have made the TV cameras at the Home of Cricket during the England v New Zealand NatWest ODI but were certainly worth a glance.
A family affair
While both sets of players were warming up this morning an impromptu game of cricket broke out in the Coronation Garden behind the Pavilion.
Three generations of the Ashken family from Norfolk were gearing up for the ODI.
Just under 2,000 Under 16s tickets were sold for the match and Lord's TV had a quick chat with dad, granddad and sons to find out why the Home of Cricket and the sound of leather on willow still appeals to both young and old.
Autograph hunters and cricket fans always love a trip to the Nursery Ground during an England game, with all the players making last minute preparation its the perfect opportunity to see your favourites up close and personal.
But today some will have got more than they bargained for as Kevin Pietersen - currently returning from a knee injury - went for a bat.
Going over a few things with England Team Director Andy Flower, England supporters were given a glimpse of a man who could be this summer's Ashes hero.
Champagne on ice
At every major match day there is plenty of food and drink consumed at the Home of Cricket but this would never be possible if not for the hard work of our cellar team.
This morning Lord's TV went behind the scenes to get a glimpse of the hard work that MCC cellar manager James Law and his team go through when there's 28,500 people at the Home of Cricket.
With over 50,000 pints to be poured in one day and 12,000 bottles of Champagne sold when England are at Lord's over the summer, there is plenty to do!
