N. Hussain 103* v New ZealandBack to boards

In the summer of 2004, England batsman Nasser Hussain walked out to bat against New Zealand at Lord’s for what would be his final innings and scored an emotional century to win the Test.

His 103 not out against the Black Caps is one of the most memorable hundreds to be scored at the Home of Cricket in recent years.

Determined to go out on a high, Hussain, along with long-time friend Graham Thorpe, saw England through to the required 282 - the second highest successful fourth innings chase in a Test match at Lord's.

Hussain was the star, hitting the ball through extra cover with his trademark open-faced drive to bring England home and put his name on the Lord’s Honours Board for the third time in his career.
