M.A. Taylor 111 v EnglandBack to boards

Mark Taylor made the Lord's Honours Boards when he hit 111 during Australia's thrashing of England in 1993.

After Australia won the toss and decided to bat, Taylor arrived at the crease alongside Michael Slater to try and put on a challenging total for their side.

With some relentless batting, the pair put on a partnership of 260 before Slater was dismissed for 152.

A further seventeen runs were added before Taylor lost his wicket as he was stumped by Alec Stewart off the bowling of Phil Tufnell for 111.

His innings saw him face 243 balls, hitting 10 fours and a six as Australia cruised to a mammoth total of 632/4d.

England could only manage scores of 205 and 365 in reply, giving Australia the win by an innings and 62 runs.
