In 1897, Bosanquet went to Oriel College, Oxford, and although he left in 1900 without taking a degree, he recorded many sporting accomplishments.[1] As his strength increased, he became a far better cricketer, and in 1898 he was awarded his cricket Blue. He made his first-class debut against for Oxford University against A. J. Webbe's XI, but achieved little in the season. He had a top-score of 17 in ten innings before the University Match, but was still chosen to play. In that match, he made his highest score of the season, an unbeaten 54. He had more success with the ball, taking five wickets in an innings against the Marylebone Cricket Club (M.C.C.) and Surrey. After the University season, he played two games for Middlesex at the recommendation of Pelham Warner, who went on to captain Middlesex and England.[5][7] These were not successful and included a dropped catch.[7] In all first-class matches, Bosanquet scored 168 runs at a batting average of 14.00 and took 30 wickets at a bowling average of 18.70.[8][9] At the end of the season, he joined a team led by Warner which toured America. He took ten wickets in the two first-class matches, and had more success in minor matches, twice taking eight wickets in an innings.[5]
