Profile

Charlie Knott was one of Hampshire's leading amateur bowlers. His challenging offbreaks, full of deceptive cunning and quietly paraded with the tidiest of loops, brought him 676 wickets between 1938 and 1954. They nearly brought him England recognition, too. He was seriously considered for the MCC tour of Australia and New Zealand in l950-51. As he used to joke, he was measured for his blazer but that was as far as it got.
