I remember being there that day as well! Although I was still at primary school at the time.....it was almost the end of the school year, so they didn't mind us heading down the Parks to watch. 1991 it was....

Although Cricinfo doesn't think that Curtley Ambrose played that day! Could have been Hamish Anthony, his replacement?

Those were the days when a touring side came over for the whole summer. Five Tests, a few one days and then a dozen or so matches at county grounds up and down the country. No time for that any more...…...

Had a mate working the University security (armed as well!) We would be able to get into all sorts of places, including the bars, made for quite a day out. (although my memories are somewhat fuzzy)
