L.S. Pascoe 5-59 v EnglandBack to boards

Len Pascoe made the Lord’s Honours Boards when he took five wickets for 59 runs during Australia’s drawn Test with England in 1980.

The bowler, who only played 14 Tests for his country, ripped through England’s middle and lower order, getting the dismissals of Mike Gatting, Sir Ian Botham, Peter Willey, David Bairstow and John Emburey to reduce the hosts to a score of 205 all out after Australia had posted 385/5d in their first innings.

Australia gave England a target of 370 runs for their final innings but despite Pascoe claiming another wicket, the tourists were unable to secure victory with the Test succumbing to a draw after five days.
