1981 – A County Championship win for Notts

I recently purchased this commemorative plate via ebay and as a Notts lad who loves cricket I’m delighted to have it for display in our house. Whether my good lady shares this enthusiasm is a different matter though!

This was a strong side with Randall, Hadlee, Rice, Robinson, Hemmings, French and Hassan all being top class cricketers. Those who know me will realise how much I enjoyed watching Derek Randall bat and field but I always felt that Kenyan-born Basharat Hassan was often overlooked as a batsman of some considerable class on his day.
