Bishan Bedi: "It was India's second innings in the Headingley Test of 1967. We were following on after we had somehow got to 164 in the first innings. England had made 550. Robin Hobbs, the legspinner, was bowling from round the wicket to a field set for rank No. 11s like me. He was not too much trouble, and I just went for the slog there wasn't much else I could do in that situation. Tiger Pataudi had played a tremendous knock and we ended up making 510. I contributed 14, with two fours, but overall it was a bad game for me. I suffered a hamstring injury and hardly bowled in the match."Photograph from PA Photos

Fanning the flames

Booted out

Full metal racket

Muskets at dawn

To Kandy, chop chop

A lift for Vishy

The flight of Icarus

Another wet day at Headingley

Telling off the toffs

Out, damned stump

Vandals stopped play

The bowler's Holding, the stumps are flying
