1792 English cricket season
In the 1792 English cricket season, Kent played Hampshire at Cobham Park, which was Lord Darnley’s estate and the home of the Bligh family. Ninety years later it became the home of the Ashes in the shape of the urn brought back from Australia by the Hon. Ivo Bligh. A match in Sheffield provides the earliest known instance of the rare dismissal of obstructing the field. Elsewhere, the earliest known cricket club in India was formed in Calcutta.
