Product Description

Product Description

Great video, The 100th test match at Lord's, 105 minutes running time approx, fast dispatch, UK SELLER

From the Back Cover

The hundredth test match at lords was a thriller, a game of such outrageous swings in fortune it was almost unbelievable.

It featured three of the truly great West Indian cricketers: Brian Lara, the world record holding batsman; Courteney Walsh, the highest test wicket taker of all time and Curtly Ambrose, the ultimate sat bowling destroyer. The occasion also saw the return to England colours of Dominic Cork, who was man of the match five years ago when England memorably beat the West Indies on this very same ground.

These were the two proud teams battling to emerge from the doldrums and West Indies had a terrific start, winning the first test of the series at Edgbaston by an innings. Immediately the whisper was that England had had it and that West Indian dominance of the game was on its way back. Well was it? Or could England's players show the sort of spirit and character that the country craved?

Day one saw the West Indies impose their authority with the bat before Cork dragged England back into the game. Day two witnessed all or part of the four innings - the first time this had ever happened in Test history.

West Indies all out for 267 - England 134 - West Indies 54 all out and England 0-0. Day three built to a nerve jangling climax as England edged closer and closer to the target of 188 to win.

Unquestionably the hundredth Lord's test lived up to its billing - it was a match that will live in the memory forever.

All cricket fans must watch this video, whether you saw the match live or not. It is one of the best matches played. One main reason to watch it is to see Dominic Cork fired up at the end and Darren Gough's must see catch, it's a beauty! This video can definitely be watched over and over again.

The pitch may have been somewhat inconsistent and the overhead conditions somewhat gloomy throughout however this Test Match, the 100th at Lords, was one of the most exciting ever.
This Channel 4 video encapsulates the full flavour of the excitement. Mark Nicholas and Richie Benaud,the doyen of cricket commentators, take the viewer through Channel 4s coverage. Right from the moment when Andrew Caddick and the England attack skittled over the West Indies for a paltry 57 this Test Match burst into life. On the last day every single ball had an intensity of purpose as England chased a paltry target. However the erstwhile Walsh and Ambrose pegged Engalnd back and not until the flambouyant Dominc Cork, a man for the big occaision, scored the winning could Enland supporters relax and savour a truely momentous victory.
A superb Channel 4 production for a superb game of cricket.
