Preferring to forget

I can understand it, I suppose, but there’s something missing in this summary of the First Test between India and England at Lords in 1990.

In the first Test of the 1990 series, we lost badly at Lord's after failing with the bat in the second innings.

Well, two things really. The first thing that it misses is the fact that Graham Gooch scored more runs in that Test match than anyone else ever has in the history of the game.  333 in the first innings, and 123 in the second. And the second is that, just 30 odd runs into his first innings marathon, the Indian keeper, Kiran More, dropped an absolute sitter behind the stumps. An odd omission. Who’s the writer?

Kiran More, a wicketkeeper, played 49 Tests for India from 1986 to 1993

Ah.
