J.A. Snow 5-57 v AustraliaBack to boards

John Snow earnt his second spot on the Honours Boards when he took 5-57 versus Australia at Lord's in 1972.

In a match famous for Bob Massie's debut figures of 8-84 in England's first innings, Snow was tasked with replying in a similar manner for his side during the Ashes series.

After removing Bruce Francis for a duck, Snow also claimed the wickets of Ian Chappell, Doug Walters, Rod Marsh and Massie to add his own personal history to a historic Test.

Unfortunately for Snow and England, they crumbled to 116 in their second innings to give Australia a target of 81 runs, which they managed to chase down within 26.5 overs to win the match by eight wickets.
