B.S. Bedi


B.S. Bedi 6-226 v EnglandBack to boards

Bishan Bedi's only appearance on the Lord's Honours Boards came during India's 1974 defeat to England.

On a tough pitch for bowlers, England opened the batting and quickly made a mark on the match with Dennis Amiss' century helping to post a score of 337-2 before Bedi even claimed his first wicket.

His dismissal of John Edrich (96) and then Keith Fletcher gave India hope of trying to restrict England below 400.

However, those hopes were quickly dashed when Mike Denness and Tony Greig both made centuries with England eventually talling a mammoth score of 629 all out.

Bedi was the only bowler of note to cause England any sort of trouble. 

In addition to his wickets of Edrich and Fletcher, Bedi also removed Denness, Alan Knott, Geoff Arnold and Derek Underwood to earn a spot on the Honours Boards.

Bedi wouldn't have the opportunity to bowl again in the match, with England comfortably winning the Test by an innings and 285 runs.
