L.C. Braund 104 v South AfricaBack to boards

Len Braund made his way on to the Honours Boards when he hit a century during the drawn three-day Test between England and South Africa at Lord’s in 1907.

England elected to bat and were struggling with a score of 140-4 before Braund took his place at the crease.

In an innings that lasted 240 minutes, Braund hit an impressive 12 fours before losing his wicket with 104 runs to his name, with England finishing their innings with a score of 428 to their name.

In what was South Africa’s first-ever Test at Lord’s, the visitors managed to hold on to a draw after three long days at the Home of Cricket.
