Did you know?
The world cup has been hosted by England a record five times (1975,1979,1983,1999,2019), which is the most for any nation playing the world cup!
Along with that, all those years, the world cup final has been hosted by Lord’s London and even this year it will be hosted by Lord’s, London!!
The ashes rivals will also face each other just before the finals in the league stages, right here at the home of cricket, Lord’s.
62 matches have been played here from which 26 have been won by teams batting first and 32 won by the team batting second.
Out of the last 6 matches played at this venue, 4 matches have seen a first innings score above 300 and in total only 8 300+ scores have been recorded at this venue in 62 matches.
England surprisingly doesn’t even have a 50% winning percentage at The Lord’s where they have won 24 matches and lost 26 matches, whereas the Aussies have won 12 matches and lost 7 matches here.
New Zealand have been unbeaten at The Lord’s (winning three out of three games at this venue)
Pakistan and South Africa don’t enjoy coming here where they have won only one and four games out of four and eleven games respectively.
