Memorable Ashes Tests at Lord's
Graham Caygill | July 16, 2013
Ahead of the second Ashes Test at Lordís between England and Australia, which starts on Thursday,†Graham Caygill looks at the past five Test encounters between the two sides at the venue.
2009 England defeated Australia at Lordís for the first time in 75 years as they triumphed by 115 runs in the second Test. They were led by 161 from captain Andrew Strauss, above, in the first innings, and a second-innings haul of five wickets from Andrew Flintoff to secure victory.
2005 Glenn McGrath, below, finished with match figures of nine for 82 as he proved too hot for England to handle in the first Test. Australia had struggled to 190 batting first, but McGrath ensured they still had a 35-run first innings lead, and the tourists went on to win by 239 runs.
2001 Australia crushed England in the second Test with Mark Waugh, above, striking 108 and Adam Gilchrist hitting 90 as they built up a first-innings lead of 214. Jason Gillespie then took five for 53 in Englandís second innings as they fell to an eight-wicket defeat.
1997 After being bowled out for 77 in their first innings, thanks to McGrathís eight for 38, England were grateful for wet weather as they secured a draw in the second Test. England batted 79 overs to save the match against the team of Mark Taylor, below, with Mark Butcher and Michael Atherton putting on 162 for the first wicket.
1993 Australiaís batsmen dominated the second Test as Taylor, Michael Slater and David Boon struck centuries, and Mark Waugh was bowled for 99. Their score of 632 for four was enough to win by an innings and 62 runs as Shane Warne, above, took eight wickets.
