Last season one of their Hoggets struck a monumental six on the East side of this stunning ground and it landed on the back of the neck of an Aberdeen Angus cow. The batsman named Watson Briggs apologized and said “Apparently it seems to be unaffected.” Play was duly resumed.
Cow corner- the area of the field (roughly) between deep mid-wicket and wide long-on. So called because few 'legitimate' shots are aimed to this part of the field, so fielders are rarely placed there – leading to the concept that cows could happily graze in that area. The phrase is rumoured to have been created on the fields of Dulwich College.
