August 11, 1977; Headingley, Leeds: It was close to 6 PM. Greg Chappell came on to bowl to Geoffrey Boycott, who was batting on 96.

“I kept telling myself: ‘Just look for the gap around extra cover or through the on side’. In case I mistimed the ball in my enthusiasm, I was determined not to hook – even if Chappell dug one in invitingly. I’d faced 231 deliveries before Chappell came running in again. I’d struck 14 fours. The 232nd ball brought my 15th boundary – and my century.”
