Fry, Palin and Fox

Plenty of famous faces pass through Lord's during a Test match but this Saturday we managed to catch three big ones in one place.

Stephen Fry, Michael Palin and Freddie Fox were all enjoying the match in one of the Tavern boxes.

Lord's TV managed to grab them for a couple of minutes and the next thing we knew they were reminiscing about cricketing greats and their love of the game...

Tea and cake with family Strauss

Family Strauss3He's probably still struggling to get his head around turning up to Lord's for a Test match and not having to decide whether to bat or bowl, but Andrew Strauss will surely have had a much more relaxing day today.
Here he is with wife Ruth and son Luca about to tuck into a cake made for them by Alice Cook - wife of the new England captain - to celebrate the Strauss's London Marathon efforts for the Lord's Taverners.

The men behind the lens

If you were tuned into your television sets this afternoon then you'll certainly have missed these guys.

Why? Because they look after the images that get sent all over the world.

Here's Sky cameraman Riaan Myburgh getting ready for the day's play in the Pavilion.
