K.R. Miller 10-152 v EnglandBack to boards

Keith Miller's second spot on the Lord's Honours Boards came when he finished with match figures of 10-152 during the 1956 Ashes Test versus England.

During his last appearance at the Home of Cricket, Miller's first bowling spell of the match came after his Australian side had scored 285 in their first innings with the all-rounder scoring 28.

Miller quickly disrupted the England batting line-up by removing Peter Richardson for nine, before taking the wickets of Tom Graveney, Willie Watson, Trevor Bailey and Fred Trueman to finish with figures of 5-72 after the first innings.

Australia posted 257 in their second innings giving England a tough task of chasing down 372 runs.

Once Richie Benaud and Ron Archer had claimed Australia's first two wickets, Miller became active again.

His wickets of Graveney, Watson, Peter May, Godfrey Evans and Johnny Wardle helped seal victory for the visitors by 185 runs, with Miller's overall match figures finishing with 10 wickets for 152 runs.
