C.T.B. Turner


C.T.B. Turner 6-67 v EnglandBack to boards

Australian seamer Charlie Turner booked a second appearance on the Honours Boards with a six wicket haul in the first test of the 1893 Ashes.

England batted first, and Arthur Shrewsbury top scored with 106 to propel the home side to 334. Taking the new ball, Turner bowled 36 of the 125 overs that England faced, eventually finishing with figures of 6-67.

A century from Harry Graham took Australia to 269 in reply, before Shrewsbury led with way again with 81 as England declared on 234/8. A rained off final afternoon meant play was unable to resume, and the match ended in a draw.

A convincing innings victory at The Oval was enough to secure England a 1-0 victory in the three test series.
