D.B. Vengsarkar 126* v EnglandBack to boards

Dilip Vengsarkar scored his third consecutive Test hundred at Lord's during India's historic victory over England in 1986.

England had scored 294 all out during their first innings and with India 90-2, Vengsarkar entered the crease hoping to create a bit of history by achieving yet another century at the Home of Cricket.

His innings saw him score an unbeaten 126 off 213 balls in a knock that included 16 fours and thus, scoring the most centuries at Lord's by an overseas batsman.

After England could only manage 180 in their second innings, India sealed victory in their second innings with Vengsarkar - fittingly - top scoring with 33  to secure his nation's first ever Test win at Lord's.
