A.F. Rae 106 v EnglandBack to boards

Allan Rae scored a sublime 106 in the second test at Lord’s in 1950 to get his name on the honour’s boards  when West Indies toured England.

The left handed opening batsman set the tone for the West Indies with his 106 in the first innings which consisted of 15 fours.

This innings from Rae helped the visitors put up a competitive total of 326 in the first innings with Roly Jenkins picking up 5- 116 for England.

Followed by this wonderful century by Rae, thanks to a 168 from the West Indies wicket keeper Clyde Walcott in the third innings and Sonny Ramadhin who ended up with figures of 6-86 in the final innings to help West Indies win by a massive margin of 326 runs.
