Above is Conrad Hunte of the West Indies driving (probably Fred Titmus). In the slips is Colin Cowdry, The keeper is Keith Andrews, At short leg is Fred Trueman and at mid off is Brian Close. Hunte scored 182 out of 501 for 6 declared and in the West Indies team were such players as Worrall, Sobers, Kanai, Hall and Griffiths. England lost by 10 wickets in this first test played at Old Trafford in June of 1963. Note the spectators sitting on the grass right upto the boundary and no helmets to face Hall and Griffiths!
