Ramps 301*

Wow. What can I say? The last Surrey player to score a triple century was John Edrich in the 60's, but he was playing for England at the time. The last player to do it for Surrey was none other than Jack Hobbs, way back in 1926.

Now if only his 292 against Gloucestershire earlier in the season had been a triple as well. I was joking about taking him to Australia, but damn it all, the truth is there still isn't a better batsman in the country, and I have little doubt that he would actually perform if taken.

You can see the highlights on Surrey TV. Enjoy some top notch driving straight down the ground, and on both sides of the wicket, off both front and back foot.
