Lords.org looks back at day four of the Investec Test match between England and India, bringing you some moments that you might have missed from the Home of Cricket.

Put the champagne on ice

Day four saw India legend Kapil Dev get proceedings underway by ringing the five minute bell, one of Lord's time honoured traditions.

The former India captain - who no doubt will be excited by the state of the game - then chatted to Lords.org about India's famous World Cup win here in 1983, and recalled how hundreds of bottles of champagne flowed afterwards.

Listen below to Kapil Dev describe quite a party!

Any room at the inn?

Imagine being 80 not out overnight and not being allowed into the Dressing Room the next day. Well, that's exactly what happened to Sunil Gavaskar at Lord's.

The Indian great was happy to chat about the incident, and luckily for us doesn't hold any grudges about what happened during the 1987 Bicentenary match.

Listen to the astonishing story below.
