Profile

Herbert Pigg played the bulk of his career for Hertfordshire, who he represented between 1876 and 1897, but spent two seasons in 1874 and 1875 with Northamptonshire. Wisden said: "As a member of the Cambridge XI of 1877 he did practically nothing against Oxford, scoring only a couple of runs in his two innings and having nine runs scored off him without taking a wicket. Subsequently he took part in the Hastings Week with success, making 7 and 59 and taking 8 for 125 for South v Australians in 1886, and in two Gentlemen v. Players matches, in 1889 and 1891, scoring 54 for twice out and obtaining a dozen wickets for 13.66 runs each." Pigg and his twin brother, Charles, were commonly known as Hot and Cold Pigg!
