R.W.T. Key 221 v West IndiesBack to boards

Rob Key’s only Test century was certainly one to remember when he hit 221 versus West Indies in 2004.

Claiming his spot in the line-up after Mark Butcher was ruled out through whiplash in a car accident, the Kent batsman seized his opportunity at three, sharing a second-wicket stand of 291 in 60 overs with Andrew Strauss to help build a commanding lead for England.

His double-hundred, scored in-front of Her Majesty The Queen, saw Key face 288 balls in 426 minute,  hitting an impressive total of 31 fours.

England would go on to take further control of the match with Michael Vaughan hitting two centuries as the hosts comfortably won by 210 runs.
