Surrey CCC On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the county's distinguished cricketing past, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable diary of Surrey history - with an entry for every day of the year. From the day Montpelier CC first met to discuss the formation of a county club right through to the Twenty20 era, the 168-year history of Surrey CCC and The Oval Cricket Ground takes in trophies, triumphs, unforgettable matches, and hilarious and controversial events. Fully endorsed by the club, the book travels from Alcock and Abel, via Hobbs, the Bedsers, Laker and Lock, through to the Hollioake brothers, Thorpe and Pietersen. Along the way, it recalls twin ten-wicket innings against the touring Australians, a fox trapped atop The Oval gasholder, and the fortunate tactical intervention of a labrador called Bumper!
