England's four wicket-keepers[edit]

On day 2 of the first Test at Lord's, England wicket-keeper Bruce French was facing a delivery from Richard Hadlee when he was hit on the head and forced to retire hurt. As a consequence of him having to go to hospital, England required the use of a substitute keeper. At the start of New Zealand's first innings, Bill Athey took on the role but it was decided after only a few overs that a specialist was needed. By chance, former England wicket-keeper Bob Taylor, who had retired from first-class cricket, was in the hospitality tent. With the consent of the New Zealand captain Jeremy Coney, Taylor was persuaded to don a borrowed set of pads (although he had had the foresight to bring his gloves with him) and keep wicket for England for the rest of day 2. The following day, England were permitted to call up Bobby Parks of Hampshire as a substitute for the remainder of New Zealand's first innings. The fourth day of the schedule was a rest day, while on day 4 England batted for the second time. Bruce French was finally able to return for New Zealand's second innings on the final day.[1]
