A truly memorable innings of sir Viv Richards, 189* runs against England
Viv Richards delivered a truly remarkable performance in the match, which he later considered as one of his greatest ever. He single-handedly led the West Indies to victory despite the team being in a dire situation. They won the toss and elected to bat, but found themselves in trouble at 102-7 in the 26th over on a pitch that offered little assistance to fast bowlers but gave Miller ample turn with his off-breaks.
After Haynes was run out by Botham in the second over of the match, only Baptiste and Holding provided support to Richards. In a scintillating display, Richards faced 170 balls and smashed 21 fours and five sixes, one of which sailed out of the ground at the Warwick Road end. In the final 14 overs of the innings, he and Holding added 106 runs, with Richards contributing 93 of them.
The silent partner, Michael Holding, “the batsman”
A true team player in cricket is not only the one who scores runs but also the one who supports his fellow batsmen to achieve their individual and team goals. A batsman who plays a supporting role in a partnership can be just as valuable as the one who scores the majority of the runs. A good example of this is a batsman who takes on the role of the anchor, holding up one end while his partner scores freely at the other.
This allows the team to build a solid foundation and set a good platform for the later batsmen to come in and capitalize on. The supporting batsman may not always score as many runs, but his contribution to the team’s success should not be underestimated. On that day, Holding did the same and supported Richards for his memorable innings. He came back with 12 not out on 27 balls in that match.
