M.D. Marshall


M.D. Marshall 6-85 v EnglandBack to boards

Malcolm Marshall first made the Lord’s Honours Boards when he took 6-85 during West Indies’ nine-wicket victory against England in 1984.

In a Test, famous for Sir Ian Botham’s eight-wicket haul during West Indies’ first innings, the hosts opened the batting first and, despite Graeme Fowler’s excellent century, they could only manage a score of 286 in the first innings.

Marshall was responsible for the rest of England’s batting line-up from struggling to make runs.

Firstly, he dismissed Chris Broad before taking the wickets of David Gower, Allan Lamb, Mike Gatting, Neil Foster and Bob Willis to seal a terrific six-wicket haul.

Marshall would go on to get another two wickets in England’s second innings before Sir Gordon Greenidge scored an outstanding unbeaten double hundred to seal a nine-wicket win for the West Indies.
