Early in the 2019 season Tom Kohler-Cadmore equalled two long-standing first-class fielding records in the space of two consecutive matches. Paul Dyson looks at his records and how they compare with those of the past.

Yorkshire began its 2019 Championship campaign with two away games. The second of these was against Hampshire in Southampton. Yorkshire scored 554 for seven declared then bundled out the hosts for 302 and 208 to chalk up their first win of the season and by an innings to boot. Gary Ballance scored one of his five centuries in his record-breaking sequence and there were four other half-centuries. Steve Patterson took a total of six wickets and Ben Coad five, but these figures were superseded by the slip catching of Tom Kohler-Cadmore. He took three catches in Hampshire’s first innings and added four in the second to equal a Yorkshire record which was first set in 1897 and has also since been matched by only four other players, as the following shows:


J Tunnicliffe (5+2) v Leicestershire Headingley 1897

J Tunnicliffe (5+2) v Leicestershire Leicester 1900

AB Sellers (5+2) v Essex Leyton 1933

EP Robinson (6+1) v Leicestershire Bradford 1938

A Lyth (3+4) v Middlesex Scarborough 2014

T Kohler-Cadmore (3+4) v Hampshire Southampton 2019
