Former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara rings the bell before play on the opening day of the third and final cricket Test between Sri Lanka and England at Lord’s, London on Thursday.

The ringing of the five-minute bell at Lord’s by an international cricketer, administrator or well-known enthusiast of the sport is a recent tradition introduced in 2007.

The bell, which is located outside the Bowlers’ Bar of the Lord’s Pavilion, is rung to signify the imminent start of play, and it has become a great honour to be invited to ring it on the morning of a Test match.
