M.H. Mankad 5-196 v England Back to boards

Vinoo Mankad made the Lord's Honours Boards twice in the same match, with his figures of 5-196 sealing a spot first during the 1952 Test between England and India.

After India had posted a total of 235 in the first innings, Mankad's spinning abilities were put to the test by an excellent England side which contained Sir Len Hutton, who scored 150 in the innings.

However, Mankad's relentless efforts helped get him a place on the Honours Boards.

He bowled a huge total of 73 overs, taking five wickets for 196 runs, in a spell that included 24 maidens with England scoring an impressive total of 537.

Mankad would go on to score India's first Test hundred at Lord's in their second innings but couldn't prevent England eventually winning by eight wickets at the end of the match.

Mankad's performance saw him become the only visiting Test player to produce Honours Board performances with bat and ball in the same Test Match.
