Chris Scott (cricketer)

Chris Scott (born January 23, 1964) is a first class cricketer who played for 129 first class matches for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club and Durham County Cricket Club between 1981 and 1996

He was a wicket keeper batsman who famously dropped Brian Lara on 18 while playing against Warwickshire at Edgbaston in 1994 off the bowling of Simon Brown. Lara, who had earlier been bowled by an Anderson Cummins no-ball, went on to score 501 not out, the highest individual score in first-class cricket history. Scott's fumble cost 483 runs.

He scored two centuries of his own during his career, and took 283 catches and completed 17 stumpings.

He now continues his cricketing career by coaching the Cambridge UCCE side, based at Fenners.

One bowler who did not relish the task of bowling to 'George' was the West Indian Courtney Walsh. On a cold April morning at Bristol, Walsh had been having his fill of snick offs and cracked lids. The whole momentum of the game changed in one moment though as Walsh dug one in at a pumped up Scott who leaned back and casually swatted the red cherry one bounce into the advertising boards. He then walked down the track, patted the pitch with his bat and suggested that Walsh "don't bowl there youth".
