M. Holding 6-67 v EnglandBack to boards

Michael Holding made the Lord's Honours Boards when he took 6-67 during West Indies' visit to the Home of Cricket in 1980.

England won the toss and elected to bat in the second match during the series and despite Graham Gooch's hundred, it proved to be the wrong, albeit not too costly, decision.

The pace combination of Holding and Andy Roberts, as well as Joel Garner - who took four wickets - proved too strong for England to score a decent first innings total.

Holding removed Sir Geoffrey Boycott for 8 before claiming the wickets of Gooch, Mike Gatting, Chris Tavaré, Alan Knott and Peter Willey to complete a devestating spell of bowling and a Lord's Honours Boards spot.

Despite Holding's best efforts, England would go on to draw the match after five days at Lord's.
