K.R. Miller 109 v EnglandBack to boards

Keith Miller made the Lord's Honours Boards for the first time when he scored 109 for Australia versus England in 1953.

Considered to be more of a bowling all-rounder, Miller still had a decent record with the bat, averaging 36.97 during his career and his performance during this particular Test match proved that he certainly was not to be undermined.

After Australia had posted a total of 346 in the first innings - with Miller only scoring 25 - England responded by hitting 372, placing the visitors under pressure to put on a healthy lead.

However, Miller certainly was in the mood to impress. Batting at three in the second innings, his 109 saw him spend 292 minutes at the crease, hitting 14 fours and a six in his sublime knock that helped Australia to a total of 368.

Despite England needing 343 runs for victory, they were only able to total 282 before the match was drawn to a close following five days.
