1979 World Cup: Richards and King stand pull it off again

The West Indies regained the World Cup in 1979 by defeating England by 92 runs.

The defending champions recovered from a dicey 99-4 to post an imposing 286-9 thanks to a brilliant Viv Richards century and a stand of 139 with Collis King, before Joel Garmer blew away England.
