J.D.P. Oram


J.D.P. Oram 101 v EnglandBack to boards

New Zealand all-rounder Jacob Oram sealed his place on the Lord’s Honours Board by hitting 101 in the rain-affected draw with England in 2008. 

It was Oram’s only century against England, although he did make a half-century on his first Test appearance at the Home of Cricket in 2004. 

Brendon McCullum top scored for the Kiwis in the first innings at Lord’s four years later, making 97 as New Zealand posted 277. 

Daniel Vettori earned his second place on the Honours Boards with figures of 5 for 69 as England made 319. 

Opener Jamie How had made a half-century for New Zealand in their second innings but the visitors were unsettled when McCullum was forced to retire hurt early in his innings at 120 for 4, which brought Oram to the crease. 

Oram put on 131 with Daniel Flynn, and the all-rounder hit 15 fours and two sixes in his 101, a knock which comprised 121 balls. The match ended in a draw mainly due to the time lost in the game because of poor weather.
