I commented below that Hampshire’s use of five left-armers in a Championship match may have been a club record. It will take a long time to check completely but I have found an instance of four in 2003 – and strangely, after Wasim Akram left, mid-season. In early August, Mullally, Tomlinson, Vaas and Katich bowled at Durham (Chester-le-Street)

In the inter-war period Hampshire had four quite regular left-armers: Bailey, Boyes, Creese and Pothecary – more recently, Sainsbury, Wassell, O’Sullivan, Southern, Maru, James and way back CB Llewellyn. But to find five in an innings relies upon the occasional bowlers like (for example) Henry Horton, Tony Middleton or Jimmy Adams.

So, for now, Sunday is the record ….
