Lord’s Cricket Ground has something special about it on cricket days, especially on July 14. On the third anniversary of the 2019 World Cup final, England play India in the second ODI of the three match series at the home of cricket. And the stars aren’t just on the field, but in the stands as well.

Starting from the BCCI President and former India captain Sourav Ganguly and the highest run scorer in international cricket Sachin Tendulkar were seated together in the stands. Ganguly recently celebrated his 50th birthday with his former India teammate, family and friends in London.
