Individual Scores: Viv Richards 189*; Michael Holding 12*
In the first ODI of the series between England and the West Indies, the visitors had won the toss and chosen to bat but crumbled to 102-7 in the 26th over.
Still at the crease was Viv Richards, and when he was joined by Michael Holding he increased the run-rate and dragged his side to a good total almost single-handedly.
In just 14 overs for the last wicket, the pair put on 106 runs, of which Richards scored 93 in one of the most destructive individual innings in ODI history.
Holding did a good job as he held up an end and allowed Richards to monopolise the strike and take his score to 189 not out, the record ODI score for one player until 1997.
Their final-wicket partnership of 106 took the West Indies to 272-9 from their 55 overs, and in reply England had no answer to the tourists’ fast bowlers as they were dismissed for 168.
The West Indies took the victory by 104 runs, showing just how significant that partnership between Richards and Holding was for their success.
