Steve Waugh to let battle commence at Lord's

Steve Waugh to let battle commence at Lord's

Former Australia captain Steve Waugh will ring the five-minute bell on day one of the Second Test of the Investec Ashes Series.

Waugh, who played a record 168 Tests for Australia, will be the latest famous face from the world of cricket and beyond to signal the start of play in a Test at the Home of Cricket.

Now 48, Waugh has been in London for the latest meeting of the MCC World Cricket committee at Lord's.

The tradition of a ceremonial bell ringer on the morning of each day's play for Test matches at Lord's began in 2007 when Keith Bradshaw was Secretary & Chief Executive of MCC.

A new bell-ringer is invited by MCC each day.

An MCC Pavilion Steward rings the bell before the afternoon and evening sessions of play, and on all non-Test Match mornings.
