  • Description

    The second test between England and the West Indies at Edghaston, seemingly destined for a dreary draw, was suddenly revitalised by a whirlwind innings from West Indian batsman Clive Lloyd today (Monday, August 13).

    England had been finally dismissed in their first innings for 305. Boycott, twice retired hurt, finally ran out of partners when he returned to the field for the third time and was not out 56.

    With a lead of only 22, the West Indies opened their second innings cautiously but when Lloyd came to the wicket he immediately set about the England attack with a fine display of aggressive strakemaking.

    Arnold just failed to hold one huge, lifted drive to the boundary from Lloyd, who was finally out -- caught Knott, bowled Underwood -- for 94. At close of play, the West Indies were 205 for 5 wickets, a lead of 227 runs with end day left.
