Apologies for the late arrival of the report from Northampton but ...

What a performance by the bowlers, with bat and ball. And what a performance by Craig and Jamie Overton, with bat, ball and in the slips. I think I saw every ball. The match was over in two days, not even quite that. The frenetic pace of the action makes it feels like four.

For ease of access I will put links to both of my daily reports below together with their titles:

First Day:

A madcap day at the cricket


Final Day:

Making a difference ~ Craig and Jamie Overton


And in making a difference one brother passed 300 first-class wickets. The other achieved his highest first-class score. I know we all know that but it just seemed worth saying again. And did they do it in style.

Roll on Saturday.
