Trent Bridge Cricket Ground: the first day of the 1998 Test Match
Trent Bridge Cricket Ground: the first day of the 1998 Test Match
In this view from the top of the brand-new Radcliffe Road Stand, opened the day before by Sir Garfield Sobers, the South African all-rounder Shaun Pollock has just clipped Dominic Cork through mid-wicket on his way to 50 of a large South African first-innings score which gave little hint of a second-innings collapse and eventual defeat. Although the lovely old pavilion opposite (from which the then relatively new South African flag flies) is much the same as it was when Sir Neville Cardus described Trent Bridge as a kind of lotos land where the sun always shone and the score was always 300 and something for 2, the Hound Road stand to the left is relatively new and the white offices and the double-decker stand on the right made way for the magnificent new scoreboard and the new Bridgford Road Stand in time for the 2008 season.
