But both within my lifetime

Lord Dunglass

Lord’s & Commons v Egyptian XI at the Oval in June 1951. On the left a first-class cricketer, Lord Dunglass who renounced his title to become (briefly) the British Conservative Prime Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home. He was soon stuffed by a Yorkshireman who unusually seemed to have little interest in the great game (on the right, leadingĀ Civil Servant Sir Charles Mott-Radclyffe). And 65 years later:

I know that this is out of context, Dave, but are you aware that Hampshire Women’s Cricket 1st XI are playing Essex Women’s 1st XI at the Ageas Bowl on Friday 8 July at 1:30pm. I don’t know if this on the main ground prior to the men’s Game, or on the nursery ground. It would be nice if Hampshire Cricket told their members and the public about this.

I had no idea John – thanks for telling us

Wondering why I had a note in my diary about Friday’s game, I did a search on Hampshire’s website. I found an entry {date unknown} titled “Matchday Theming”. This states that Friday’s match will be “mirrored by a women’s T20 match between the two counties prior to the main event”. As having 2 games on the same day on the main ground is an unusual event, I think that more information should have been given via the website and PA announcements at previous matches. I assume that confirmation of the woman’s game will be made in the next few days.

Tim Tremlett has confirmed to me that the game is on the main ground prior to the men’s game. Further information to be posted on Hampshire Cricket’s website.
