What happened on this day?

31 Jul 1956

Old Trafford, 1956. Jim Laker, the England off-break artist, has just finished taking 19 Australian wickets for 90, which included a masterful 10 for 53 in the second innings and nine for 37 in the first. Although the Australians blasted the pitch, which was apparently deliberately under-prepared, there can be no doubting that this was 'Laker's Match'.
