J.B. Hobbs 211 v South AfricaBack to boards

Sir Jack Hobbs' second century at Lord's, saw him hit a brilliant score of 211 versus South Africa in the summer of 1924.

In Hobbs' first match at the Home of Cricket for 12 years due to World War I, the opener made his consecutive century at Lord's once South Africa had posted a score of 273 all out.

The opener was absolutely sublime with the bat with 15 fours scored during his patient score of 211.

The innings helped England declare on a total of 531/2d and once South Africa were bowled out for 240 in their second innings, the host claimed victory by an innings and 18 runs.
