W.H. Lockwood 6-101 v Australia Back to boards

William Henry Lockwood made his Test debut for England against Australia at Lord’s in 1903 and marked the occasion in some style, by taking six wickets for just 101 runs.

In what was a drawn match, affected by rain, Lockwood showcased his talents by skittling the top order as Australia were all out for 269, with the fast bowler - widely regarded as one of the most famous of his generation - sealing his place on the Honours Boards.

In 19 years in cricket, Lookwood he took 1,376 wickets at an average of 18.34, and despite a tendency to ignore his batting in favour of bowling, he averaged 21.9 in first-class cricket.
