Notable matches[edit]

Warwickshire and Hampshire took part in one of the most remarkable of all County Championship matches, at Edgbaston on 14–16 June. Warwickshire made 223 and then dismissed Hampshire for only 15, Calthorpe taking 4/4 and Howell 6/7. Eight batsmen made ducks. Following on, Hampshire did much better, but still seemed certain to lose at 274 for 8. George Brown with 172, and the captain's valet and wicket-keeper Walter Livsey with 110 not out, took the total to 521. Warwickshire needed 314 to win. Jack Newman and Alec Kennedy then bowled Hampshire to a remarkable victory.[2][3]
