K. Higgs 6-91 v West IndiesBack to boards

Kenneth Higgs was selected for the England team to play against the formidable West Indies team captained by Garfield Sobers in 1966, and in the first innings, he achieved his best Test bowling figures, taking 6 for 91 in 33 overs.

This included removing both openers Conrad Hunte and Joey Carow, though he was unable to dismiss Sobers in both innings, despite taking a further two wickets in the second innings as the match ended in a draw.

Aside from hsi England career, which saw him represent his country in 15 Tests, Higgs is fondly remembered at the Home of Cricket for taking a hat-trick in the 1974 Benson and Hedges Cup Final, which Leicestershire lost to Surrey at Lord's.
