I spent yesterday’s sweltering afternoon at Lord’s, alternatively watching Middlesex vs. Northamptonshire outside or England vs. Bangladesh on the TV in the Bowlers’ Bar.
Lord’s had decreed that Saturday 5 June was “Ladies’ Day”, in the tradition of the same at The Derby on the previous day. Under- or loudly-dressed young (and not so young) ladies could enter free of charge.
I should not complain about loud-dressing – my egg and bacon tie and claret moleskin trousers combination always gets a few comments.
One gentleman, however, took the Ladies’ Day concept perhaps a bit too literally. He was sat in the Members’ Bar wearing a kilt – a dress, I’d call it.
The legs were not fine but I was assured that the ball swung.
