On June 7th 1952 the worst start to an innings in Test history. In the first Test at Headingley, India would have fancied their chances when they began their second innings only 41 runs behind England. Fourteen balls later they were 0 for 4. The author of the carnage was England's 21-year-old debutant Fred Trueman. He took three of the wickets, and Alec Bedser the other.
On June 7th 1975 Dennis Lillee (5 for 34) bowled Australia to victory over Pakistan with the first one-day "five-for".

Who can forget Frederick I (Holy Roman Emperor) drowned on this day 1190 on his way to the Holy Land?

More up-to-date in 1727, was the day that King George I died in Osnabruck.

and I'm surprised you missed this day in 1983 when Margaret Thatcher won a landslide victory for a second term as PM!
