    Dominating the scoring

    An hour or so ago I turned on the radio and heard the commentary of Peter Fulton bringing up his 100 in the State Shield game between Canterbury and CD. Nothing extraordinary about that, except that the Canterbury score when he brought up his century was 128/2 (or was it 130? Something like that anyway). I thought this was quite remarkable.

    Anyway, it got me thinking. Do any of you statistics buffs out there know the record for the lowest ever team score when a player has brought up an individual century, at domestic OD/FC/test/ODI levels? Do you recall any times when a player has totally dominated the scoring?

    McGill and Thornely recently put on something like 261 of which MacGill got 27 (or was it 29?)

    I cant remember the exact game but a year or so ago, one of the west indies openers brought up his hundred with something like 120 on the board with no loss.

    May 1899
    Cambridge University versus Yorkshire

    The university , batting first lost three wickets for just 40 runs. In came young Jessop. When Cambridge were all out 206 runs later, Jessop had made 171 of them.

    In a partnership of 93 for the 4th wicket Sullivan contributed 3 runs.

    Playing for a Surrey club on an off day from the county season in 1907, Jessop scored 200 while the batsman at the other end added 14 !!!

    I seem to recall a game where Slater was wrongly given not out on a run out call and he had scored something like 130 out of 195 against England.

    Yorkshire seem to have been Jessop's favourite whipping team.

    He once scored 63 out of 65 against them in 1894 in just 30 minute !

    In 1997 he scored 101 out of 118 against them in just 40 minutes of batting !!

    i played in a game last season, where the opening bat brought up his 50 in the 9th over and the team had exactly 50 on the board.

    Jessop scored 160 in an hour against West Indies in 1900 and one of their bowlers had the unforgetable figures of 3-0-72-0.

    The most extraordinary hitting in the entire history og the game came in a Notts versus sussex game in May 191. A player called Alletson was immortalised in an innnings of 189 in 51 deliveries. John Arllot has written a complete book on it called Alletson's innings.

    It is he alongwith help from Roy Webber reconstructed the innings , bal by ball, from the original score sheet.

    He was caught off the 51st ball after having done this to the earlier 50

    Sources? I struggle to believe he only faced 51 balls considering his innings lasted 90 minutes and over rates in those days were over 20 an hour.

    Maybe they took a while to find the balls he likely lost on some of the sixes!

    That does not add up to 189.
