Lord’s prepares for Pakistan v Bangladesh

Posted: 4 July 2019

After three ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup matches this summer at the Home of Cricket, Lord’s is preparing for its fourth and final group match in the current tournament as Pakistan take on Bangladesh tomorrow.

With a large support expected from both teams, MCC has taken a number of steps to cater for followers of both countries.

Website Translations

These include translating key pages from the Club’s website into additional languages to assist with supporters’ preparations for attending the match. 

The pages are: Plan Your Day, How to Get Here, What to Wear, What to Bring, Food & Drink, Things to Do and Frequently Asked Questions.

These pages have all been translated into Urdu, Bengali, and Hindi. Key messages are also being shared on social media in these languages.

Plan Your Day

Food & Drink

There will be a number of alterations to the food and beverage offering in the Ground. At every outlet throughout the ground, MCC have looked to reduce all pork products, whilst ensuring almost all public hot food is halal.

A number of new offerings will be on sale on the day, including Karak Chai tea, kulfi, Asian street food, and Asian sweets such as jalebi and julab jamun.

A full, detailed list of all the alterations made to the food and beverage provision for Friday’s match can be found below.

Food & Drink

Multi-Faith Rooms

Multi-Faith will be open for the fixture and they are located behind the Coronation Garden (No. 6 Grove End Road), next to the Museum

The London Central Mosque, situated close to Lord’s Cricket Ground on Park Road, is also open for those wishing to pray during the day.

 

The match is crucial to Pakistan’s hopes of qualifying for the semi-finals of the tournament, but they will require victory against a Bangladesh side, who will be playing their first ever One-Day International at Lord's.
