MCC Head Coach and former England international Mark Alleyne speaks to Lord's TV about the role of the MCC Young Cricketers in Test match preparation.
Alleyne is in charge of the MCC's Young Cricketers', which gives the platform for talented youngsters from around the globe to utilise the world class facilities and intensive playing opportunities at Lord's Cricket Ground.
The MCC's new generation have been bowling at the England and West Indies batsman, including former YC Darren Sammy, to gain invaluable experience and give the players ideal preparation ahead of the Test.
Alleyne, born and partly raised in West Indian nation Barbados, also assesses the chances of the tourists, who come to Lord's after a valiant performance in a Test series against Australia.
Tickets for the Engand v West Indies Test match at Lord's, starting on Thursday 17 May, are still available for each day's play.
Sunday tickets can still be booked online, and there are tickets available on the day for each day's play.
