Hampshire Cricket History

The Nervous Nineties

My recording of the hours lost to weather by Hampshire in the Championship took an odd twist this evening when the players went off in bad light, after 6pm

There were seven overs remaining and (as noted below) Hampshire began the day just 30 minutes short of recording 100 hours lost in 2012. Since 16 overs should be bowled each hour those 30 minutes equal eight overs (3.75 minutes per over) so they finished today one over or 3.75 minutes short of the century!

From the start tomorrow (Friday) the time lost is now 99 hours 56.25 minutes.

I wa more concerned at the poor Hants bowling during the afternoon which conceded up to 100 more runs as a result, and then another failure from Katich. I am also concerned at Briggs not being involved in the 4-day game, which is surely hindering his development.

Yep, Tomlinson interview in today’s Portsmouth News admits the bowling wasn’t good enough – firstly after inserting them (50-1 off ten overs) and then yesterday. This morning (so far) the batting isn’t terrific either I’m afraid!
