The topic of honors boards at Lord’s for Tests has been covered in this blog several times.
Now the authorities have announced that they would be adding honors boards for
ODIs and Women’s matches.
Having covered the centuries, we continue with the 5-fors in ODIs at Lord’s:
Only 9 such instances, compared to the 30 centuries.
No one has taken more than 5 wickets in an innings. And no one has taken a 5-for more than once. Unlike in the case of centuries, we cannot find anyone here who failed to take a 5-for in Tests at Lord’s.
The first such instance was by GJ Gilmour in the final of the 1975 World Cup. The best is 5-30 by DL Vettori vs WI in 2004. Also note J Garner’s 5-38 in the final of the 1979 World Cup.
The “Home” board:
Only one entry here.
The best against India are 4-22 by SJ Harmison on 05 Sep 2004 and 4-46 by LE Plunkett on 17 Jul 2018.
Now for the “Visitors” board:
Somewhat longer. The best by India is 3-26 by A Nehra and 3-28 by Harbhajan Singh in the same match against England on 5 Sep 2004 (in which Harmison also had the best figures against India).
And the “Neutral” board:
In this category India has only played one match, the World Cup final in 1983. India’s best performances were 3-12 by M Amarnath and 3-31 by S Madan Lal. The best against India was 3-32 by AME Roberts.
