Former West Indies fast bowler Fidel Edwards is still firing away in the fast lane.

The 36-year-old celebrated receiving his county cap by grabbing a five-wicket match haul to help propel Hampshire to a massive 196-run victory over Worcestershire in the opening round of the English County Championship this week.

Resuming on 59 for three on Monday, chasing 324 at the Rose Bowl, Worcestershire collapsed for a meagre 127 with Edwards capturing three for 33 to follow up his brace in the first innings.

He contributed to Worcestershire’s swift capitulation by snatching two wickets in successive deliveries to leave Worcestershire on 101 for nine.

Edwards, who took 165 wickets in 55 Tests for the Windies with 12 five-wicket innings hauls, got his county cap before the start of play for his contributions to the club. (EZS)
