M.E. Trescothick

194

vs BangladeshBack to boards

Marcus Trescothick scored his first century at Lord’s when he hit 194 versus Bangladesh in the summer of 2005.

Bangladesh, competing in their first-ever Test at the Home of Cricket, were bowled out for 108, allowing Trescothick and his England team-mates to come out to bat during the first day.

The opener took advantage by displaying some delightful strokes in a stand of 148 with Andrew Strauss before the latter fell for 69.

Trescothick continued to build the runs with captain Michael Vaughan, with the Somerset batsman eventually falling having hit 194 off 259 balls with 23 fours scored in the process.

England would go on to win the match on Day Three by an innings and 261 runs
