1977 - Randall marks Ashes Centenary in style


England's Derek Randall scores a superb 174 in the Centenary Test, earning a standing ovation from the Melbourne crowd and praise from co-commentator and former Australia captain, Lindsay Hassett.

Randall's century wasn't enough to prevent an Australia victory though. England were dismissed for 417 in their second innings, losing by 45 runs.
