Blagg was educated at Shrewsbury School, where he played in the First XI from 1935 to 1937. He went up to Oxford University, where after his exams in 1939 he replaced Manning Clark as wicket-keeper in the university team, playing the remaining ten matches of the season and gaining his Blue.
He made a number of stumpings off the Oxford spin bowlers. In the match against Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) he stumped three off the leg-spin of Algernon Marsham, including Denis Compton. He batted low in the order, with a highest score of 28 not out against Somerset. His last first-class match was the victory over Cambridge University.
He was also awarded a Blue for football in 1939.
