West Indies at Lord's free pdf Every so often a Test match offers such high drama as to transcend the series of which it was part. Such a battle was the second Test between England and West Indies at Lord's in June 1963. "Wisden" called it one of the most dramatic played in England. Alan Ross's eyewitness account amply evokes its excitement. Lord's was packed with supporters of both sides, and the two teams, led by Ted Dexter and Frank Worrell, were very strong. West Indies had Garry Sobers and the pace attack of Wes Hall and Charlie Griffith, against whom Dexter's first innings 70 was noteworthy. Fred Trueman took 11 wickets for England, though he could not stop a colossal century by Basil Butcher. But England's final innings run-chase would be distinguished by one courageous knock from Brian Close, and a commensurately brave effort by Colin Cowdrey.
