G.A. Headley


G.A. Headley 107 v EnglandBack to boards

George Headley scored 107 during West Indies' second innings in their 1939 Test against England to make history at Lord's.

His sublime century, which came after scoring 106 in the first innings, saw Headley become the first player to hit a 100 in each innings during the same Test at Lord's.

His second hundred saw him spend 230 minutes at the crease, hitting eight fours before being caught by Sir Len Hutton off the bowling of Doug Wright.

Despite Headley's historic hits, West Indies would still go on to lose the Test by eight wickets.
