In the second innings Bill Edrich (54) and Barrington (37) were both in the runs as the Taverners chased down the 221 required to win for the loss of six wickets. But not before new-found all-rounder HRH the Prince of Wales had his say with the ball as well.

He removed Edrich, having him stumped before bowling the great Barrington to keep the game alive. Unfortunately his figures of 6.5 overs 2-35 were in vain but it was a very memorable appearance none the less.

The Prince of Wales played occasionally  for the Lord's Taverners  and took part in a memorable  match  between the Lord’s Taverners XI and Royal Air Force Cranwell which took place  in July 1971.

Naturally  Prince Charles chose to play for the RAF Cranwell side.

Batting first Cranwell scored 220-9 in their 42.4 overs before declaring but HRH, batting at number seven, arrived to the wicket fully padded up and in his whites on horseback in one of the most memorable moments in Taverners XI history.

Once he took guard he managed to contribute 17 before being bowled by Surrey and England legend, Ken Barrington
