The confusing mystery posed by Alf Valentine and Sonny Ramadhin was finally tamed as skipper Peter May (285 not out) and Colin Cowdrey (154) put on a record 411 for the 4th wicket to prevent a loss in the first Test after Ramadhin took 7-49 to bowl England out for 186.
Tom Graveney smashed 2 hundreds to total 472 runs in the series as England won the series 3-0. Paceman Fred Trueman (22 wickets) and spinner Tony Lock (15 wickets) were the spearheads of the English attack.
