M.D. Crowe 106 v EnglandBack to boards

Martin Crowe's first appearance on the Lord's Honours Boards came in the summer of 1986 when he hit 106 versus England at Lord's.

After England won the toss, the hosts managed to post a total of 307 for their first innings and in response, New Zealand lost two early wickets with John Wright and Ken Rutherford both being dismissed to leave their side 5/2.

However, their wickets did bring Crowe to the crease who took his opportunity by scoring a brilliant century before being dismissed by Phil Edmonds for a score of 106.

The batsmen's innings saw him face 243 balls, hitting 11 fours and lasting 343 minutes at the crease.

Despite Crowe's efforts, the game fizzled out to a draw after five days with Graham Gooch hitting a century of his own for England in reply.
