R.J. Hadlee 5-93 v EnglandBack to boards

Sir Richard Hadlee claimed another spot on the Lord’s Honours Boards when he took five wickets for 93 runs during New Zealand’s tour of England in 1983.

With England batting first, Hadlee quickly removed Chris Smith for a golden duck, but a century from David Gower settled the hosts into what was going to be a tidy score.

However, Hadlee again showed his talents at the Home of Cricket, taking the valuable wicket of Mike Gatting  before also removing Bob Taylor, Neil Foster and Bob Willis as England finished their first innings with a score of 326 all out.

Unfortunately for Hadlee and New Zealand, England went on to secure a comfortable victory, winning by 127 runs.
