v West IndiesBack to boards

Against a strong West Indies batting line-up at Lord's in 1957, Trevor Bailey finished with match figures of 11-98, in an impressive display of quick bowling.

His figures of 7-44 in the first innings against West Indies at Lord’s were his second-best in Test cricket; his only other seven-wicket haul came against the same opposition in Kingston three years earlier, at a loss of 34 runs.

Bailey’s seven victims in the first innings included Clyde Walcott, Frank Worrell and the captain John Goddard, while in the second innings, he dismissed Garfield Sobers, Everton Weekes, Walcott and Sonny Ramadhin as England won by an innings and 36 runs.

Bailey finished with match figures of 11-98, the only time he achieved getting 10 wickets or more in a Test match.
