When things look tough don’t give up

Sometimes it looks as if you can’t win. That is when everyone has to dig deep, remember the basics and work as a team. This famous cricket match says it all.

In 1922 at Edgbaston, Hampshire were bowled out for 15 in just nine overs in reply to Warwickshire’s 223 in a 3-day match. Hampshire’s total is the seventh lowest score for a completed first class innings. Hampshire were put back in to bat, and then famously scored a mammoth 521 before dismissing Warwickshire for 158 to win by a comfortable 155 runs. Hampshire’s first innings total of 15 remains the lowest score for a completed innings by a winning team.
