Legendary fast bowlers share Lord's memories - Cricket World TV

England take on Australia in the second Ashes Test at Lord's, the home of cricket, later this week, but what is it really like playing at such an iconic venue?

The world's most famous, and some would say most loved ground has played host to so many incredible occasions over the years.

So, when we got the chance to ask some living legends about their Lord's memories, we were only too happy to drive straight in.

A succession of the world's greatest living fast bowlers - from Mike Procter to Sir Richard Hadlee and Kapil Dev - tell us their memories of playing at Lord's - the home of cricket.

Procter says that the ground "oozes cricket", Kapil Dev believes playing at Lord's is the dream of every young cricketer growing up and has fond memories of winning the World Cup there in 1983.

Makhaya Ntini recalls being inspired by seeing the exploits of his hero Malcolm Marshall at the ground while Curtly Ambrose says that he can't explain it, but Lord's is different from anywhere else in the world.

They were at the iconic ground ahead of an exclusive dinner at The Grange Holborn where they were joined by many more fast bowlers and cricket greats for a one-off dinner.

The Macquarie Fast Bowlers Dinner was organised by cricket’s number one charity, The Lord’s Taverners.

The celebration of fast bowling was attended by 23 legendary players including West Indian greats Sir Garry Sobers and Courtney Walsh, Australia’s record-breaking Glenn McGrath, and New Zealand talisman Hadlee.
