Day one - what you might have missed Published: 16 May 2013

Day one - what you might have missed

Lords.org looks back at the first day of the Test match summer and brings you some moments you might have missed from the Home of Cricket.

Celebs keeping a low profile

For a man in posession of one of the most distinctive heads of hair in the country, Damian Lewis does well to keep a low profile.

But the Homeland star just about managed that, enjoying the action from the Edrich stand from under a flat cap.

Others who were more visible included Nick Compton's girlfriend Kitty Spencer, the neice of Princess Diana, who took a trip to the J.P. Morgan Media Centre.

Cook on his best behaviour

Alastair Cook looked solid in his first Test as captain in England, before succumbing to a good delivery from Trent Boult after Lunch.

Lord's TV managed to find his former headmaster and coach from Bedford school during the morning session.

The England fast bowlers filling their boots

Menux300England's fast bowlers would have enjoyed themselves at Tea.

After Alastair Cook won the toss and elected to bat, the hosts made steady progress to Lunch, allowing the likes of James Anderson, Steven Finn and Stuart Broad to 'fill their boots' in the Players' Dining Room.

We hear the sticky toffee pudding was particularly popular.

The Root's on a family day out

Joe Root seemed to enjoy his first ever outing at Lord's, unbeaten on 25 when the rain truncated proceedings.

He may have taken some tips from his dad and brother, who have both played at Lord's this season.

Brother Billy, an MCC Young Cricketer, was on 12th man duties for England, while his mum, dad, grandad and grandmother were in attendance on a special family day out.

The birth of new awards

MCC & BBC Sport announced two new Spirit of Cricket awards at Lunchtime on Test Match Special, in honour of the late broadcaster and MCC President Christopher Martin-Jenkins.
