Lords.org brings you some moments you would not have seen on TV from the third day of the first Investec Test between England and Sri Lanka.

Parky and Co.

One of Britain's greatest broadcasters, Sir Michael Parkinson, and one of the country's finest ever Olympians, Lord Coe, spent the day together in the Tavern Stand.

We got the two together for a quick chat and before long they were reminiscing about cricket and football in Sheffield, playing at Lord's and Olympic Archery - as well as the thought of a running track at the Home of Cricket.

Listen to the full interview below.

It's all about the Chase

Lorraine Chase may have forgotten her ticket to the Test today, but she managed to sweet talk her way in. It helped that she was being looked after in the President's Box by Mike Gatting.

The ex-Emmerdale star was like a kid at Christmas in the Grand Stand and told us a delightful story about how she once clean bowled Phil Mitchell! Well Steve McFadden, but he is Phil Mitchell.

Listen to the full interview below.

What does the fox say?

One of cricket's most colourful characters was in the Ground today, none other than the former Lancashire and England opener Graeme 'Foxy' Fowler.

Sporting a beard that even W.G. Grace would have been proud of, which flummoxed a few of his old pals, such as Michael Holding and Dickie Bird.
