England in NZ 1992 - Lawrence's injury pain
David Lawrence holds his knee in agony
England had wrapped up the 1992 tour with two Test victories when a serious knee injury to David "Syd" Lawrence overshadowed their accomplishments.

The Gloucestershire fast bowler was charging in during the fifth day of the third Test in Wellington when, as he planted his left foot down in his delivery stride, his knee cap split in two.

Lawrence writhed in excruciating pain as his cries of agony echoed around the Basin Reserve.

It took eight people to carry the robust Lawrence off the pitch on a stretcher. Sadly, the Test - Lawrence's fifth - was also his last for England.
