One of those days huh?

When Hampshire play their home Championship matches at Arundel they will have played home and away in the same competition on the same ground

Has that ever happened before? (N.B: I’m not interested here in different sponsors’ names, just ‘broadly’ the same competition)

Incidentally our Championship record at Arundel is Played 6; Won 1; Drawn 3; Lost 2.

Dean Park in the 65/55/50/45/40 over competition?

Too easy then – you didn’t mention the opponents …

Away to Dorset, and, according to the magazine cover you posted last month, home to Essex and Middlesex simultaneously!

Can think of T20 instances. Middlesex playing the odd home game at the Oval. Lancashire played their home quarter final at Chester Le Street last season.

Very good Ian – I meant to mention that I was referring to Hampshire but you are quite right. I was going to post details of the Hampshire example (Dean Park above) but rain appears to have stopped play at Cricket Archive as well as Hove and Old Trafford . Anyway I can recall it was 1998 in the Nat West Trophy and Hampshire started on 0-3 (Julian Shackleton bowling for Dorset). Robin then scored a century with support from Adi.

Middlesex played their home match v Notts in the 1939 County Championship at the Oval and their home match v Somerset in the 1977 Championship at Chelmsford.

Surrey played two County Championship games in August 1914 at Lord’s.
