v West IndiesBack to boards

Walter Robins’ best bowling performance at Test level came against the West Indies at Lord's in 1933.

In West Indies’ first innings, Robins took 6 wickets for 32 runs, his sharp turning leg breaks and googlies proving too much for the tourists.

His victims included the captain George Grant, as the tourists were bowled out for 97.

Following on, West Indies made 172 in their second innings – Robins taking the wicket of Ivan Barrow as England won by an innings and 27 runs.
