ROBSON & GUBBINS FACE 'THE FIRST BALL OF THE SEASON'

about 1 year ago|Watch & Listen

To mark the start of what would have been the opening day of the 2020 County Championship season, the ECB appealed to all cricketers across the country to record themselves at home facing the 'first ball of the season' and upload it onto social media!

Rising to the challenge, Middlesex openers Sam Robson and Nick Gubbins, recorded themselves facing their 'first ball of the season' in a classic spoof run out, shot when in self-isolation in their homes!

Watched over 100,000 times across social media and by millions on national TV when featured on BBC Breakfast this week, Robbo and Gubbo's video has proved a huge hit!

If you fancy having a go yourself, then record your very own 'first ball of the season', upload it on Twitter and tag in @CountyChampionship and use the hashtag #CountyChampAtHome
