C.G. Greenidge 103 v EnglandBack to boards

Sir Gordon Greenidge's final appearance on the Lord's Honours Boards came in 1988, when he hit 103 for West Indies in their 134-run victory against England.

Only scoring 22 in the first innings, Greenidge and West Indies struggled to make an impression after electing to field first, managing to only tally a score of 209.

However, once England were bowled out for just 165 in response, it gave Greenidge and the Windies an opportunity to build on their slender lead.

Greenidge duly delivered, scoring 103 off 192 balls, hitting 14 fours in the process as West Indies finished their second innings with a score of 397.

Needing a mammoth total of 442, England were unable to chase West Indies down, as they crumbled to 307 all out to give the tourists an excellent victory at the Home of Cricket.
