Derbyshire v Bradford/Leeds UCCE Day 3

In so far as the game was concerned it was pretty much a non-event, with Derbyshire’s attack eventually comprising Rafiq and Knight, with a little help from whoever else was left who could run up without a limp.


As it turned out, however, we got a fair amount from the game, with Chesney Hughes making a composed century on the last afternoon while Dan Redfern made another good impression. One twenty, the other twenty-one, yet they both seemed like seasoned veterans compared to Tom Knight.

At seventeen years I doubt the youngster has ever bowled more than his 45 overs in the UCCE innings and seven wickets for 153, allowing for tiredness setting in towards the end, is a remarkable effort for one of such tender years.
