Family Butchery at the Oval from the Cricketer in September 1991. Glamorgan Alan Butcher, formerly of Surrey, and his son Mark Butcher, who plays for Surrey, became the first father and son to play against each other in any form of county cricket when Surrey met Glamorgan at The Oval in a Sunday League game on July 28. Keep in mind that Alan Butcher was an excellent, stylish backfoot player.
Although he just appeared in one test match for England against India at the Oval in 1979, his son Mark Butcher scored 4,288 runs in 71 test matches for England. Alan Butcher helped his son to rebuild his technique, and he made an unexpected comeback in 2001. His fighting and blazing—173 not out against Australia at Headingley—turned a stiff run-chase into a breeze. It was a lifetime inning.
