Lord’s Cricket Ground, popular known as the Home of Cricket has a special significance in Cricket. Currently located at St. John’s Wood, Lord’s Cricket Ground is owned by the world’s biggest cricket brand, i.e., Marylebone Cricket Club.
Playing at Lord’s cricket ground is no less than a dream for any cricketer. Every cricketer wants to cherish the picturesque view of the Long Room and the popular Lord’s Honours Board inside the dressing room.
Achieving a milestone at Lord’s Cricket Ground has a huge significance. The Lord’s Honours Board inside the dressing room commemorates the players who have scored a century, taken 5 wickets in a single innings or taken 10 wickets in a match.
Scoring a century at Lord’s Cricket Ground isn’t a small feat, to say the least. Not a lot of Indians have managed to achieve the feat in the history of the game. So far, as many as nine Indian players have managed to score a century at Lord’s. Here’s a look at all of them:

Against England in 1952, he played a brilliant 184-run knock to guide India to a 378-run total in the third innings. The match eventually resulted in a draw but the knock is still regarded as one of the special tons in the history of Indian Cricket.
In his cricketing career, V Minod scored 2109 runs in 44 matches at an average of 31.5
