D.B. Vengsarkar 157 v EnglandBack to boards

Dilip Vengsarkar hit his second Lord's century during India's seven-wicket defeat to England in the summer of 1982.

Despite Kapil Dev's five-wicket haul, England posted a total of 433 after their first innings and then followed it up by bowling India out for just 128 with Vengsarkar only managing to score 2. 

Following-on, Vengsarkar - batting at three - was determined to lead the fightback and scored a fantastic total of 157 off 264 balls in an innings that included 21 fours.

Despite Vengsarkar's best attempts with his second consecutive Test hundred at Lord's, India could post a total of 369 in their second innings meaning England just needed 65 for victory, in which they achieved in 19 overs.
