Today in History: Viv The King
Cricket history on October 23: And then there was Bodyline | On This Day | ESPN Cricinfo
An improbable all-round performance from Viv Richards
led West Indies to a 20-run victory over India in a low-scoring Nehru Cup match in Delhi
. Richards belted 44 off 42 balls and then spun India to defeat with his best international figures of 6 for 41, including three wickets in four balls.
Whoaa and waqar the great
New Zealand were Waqar-ed in the second Test in Lahore
. Having lost the first match by an innings they went down by nine wickets here, with Waqar Younis
adding 10 wickets (eight of which were bowled or lbw) to the seven he took in the first match. He took 3 for 20 in the first innings (when extras, with 38, top-scored) and 7 for 86 in the second. This rendered futile the brave efforts of Martin Crowe, who made an unbeaten 108 in nearly 10 hours.
