C.L. Hooper 111 v EnglandBack to boards

Carl Hooper made the Honours Boards when he scored 111 for West Indies during the summer of 1991 at Lord's.

The all-rounder, batting at four, entered the crease with the score reading West Indies 102-2.

In his last Test at Lord's, captain Sir Viv Richards had put his side into bat and while all the eyes where on whether the legendary all-rounder would score another century at the Home of Cricket, Hooper took the limelight with a sublime innings.

His knock saw Hooper hit 14 fours and one six before being caught by Allan Lamb off the bowling of Derek Pringle.

Despite Hooper's best efforts, West Indies could not manage victory with the game closing out to a draw after five days.
