    Most Overs Umpired in one day

    Well, this Sunday I'll be standing for one Twenty20 Under-12 match, and three sixteen-over-a-side Under-11 pairs games.

    Total = 40 + 32 + 32 + 32 = 136 overs. 816+ balls.

    Has there ever been a longer day?!

    Dunno, but I'm sure you'll be red in the face at the end of it.

    Is it possible to bowl 136 overs in one day ? It will require 11+ hours, add 10 minutes break between each innings and it makes close to 12-13 hours. What time do you guys start, 6-7 am ?

    Hope you get paid overtime for that.

    I heard the man who umpired from your end whilst you were bowling had a longer day.. Unfortunatly the batsman died of malnutrition before being bowled..

    We'll be starting at 10am, and probably end about 7.30/8pm... and I won't get paid at all. There is no money in grassroots cricket for that!

    Longest I have done is a 60 over-a-side game.

    Probably less tiring on the arms than a number of big hitting low overs games.

    ??
    Thats 12 overs per hr! At test level they are supposed to bowl 15 per hr and at any other level there is no excuse for not bowling 17.5.

    For Juniors, they should bowl 20 overs per hour minimum.
    These are not my figures but general guidelines on how the game should be played.

    A quality mens team, with fast bowlers off long runs, should be able to bowl a 60 over innings in 3.5 hours.

    I've already had a 50 pound offer I'm afraid, if you can top that, then I'm your photographer for the day

    Will gladly do midweek stuff if that ever crops up because I don't work then..

    I'm really tempted, it will definitely be more fun than a football tournament in Banbury, but fading on my employer would be pretty bad news considering not many people are in the job of their dreams aged 19.. Hopefully the photography van will break down and I can go to Exeter after all..

    Well it was pretty crazy back in the 1890's

    In one game Arthur Mold and Alex Watson were not out over night in a tenth wicket stand with the score at 327/9. in the morning they took the score to 356 before Mold was out. When Sussex batted Mold and Watson opened the bowling and skittled Sussex out for 105 in 47.1 overs, with Mold taking 7-72 from 24 and Watson 3-29 from 23.1. After the break for innings, Sussex followed on and were bowled out for 126 in 58.3 overs, Mold took 7-87 from 29.3 and Watson 1-38 from 29.

    No 5 man attacks needed in those days
