J.H. Edrich 115 v New ZealandBack to boards

John Edrich's second appearance on lord's honours boards came when he hit 115 for england in their 1969 victory over new zealand.

After England claimed a slender lead of 21 after two low-scoring first innings, Edrich’s innings of 115 laid the foundation for the host's imposing second innings of 340.

The batsman was at the crease for almost five hours, striking 20 fours.

New Zealand’s pursuit of 362 for victory was fruitless, as Derek Underwood demolished their batting, claiming 7 wickets as the visitors were bowled out for only 131, with only 22 year-old opener Glenn Turner resisting, carrying his bat for 43*.
