Hampshire Cricket History

Simon Katich hits the winning run, less than an hour ago. All kinds of things might be said but it was the third thrilling Championship win at the Ageas Bowl this season, the captain led from the front and even though we weren’t brilliant throughout, we were this afternoon, we won and no one else at the top of the table did – and the sun shone!


PS (Sunday morning). Over the past three or four years championship cricket at the Rose Bowl had become increasingly dull – lots of draws and not generally close things either. This year, despite the awful weather we’ve had three thrilling finishes in seven games , two wins and the Kent draw. It must be the luck of the new name – in fact you could say that since it became the Ageas Bowl, everything’s coming up ROSES!

New name? We still play at The Rose Bowl as far as I am concerned and I suspect that is the same for the vast majority of our supporters!

There’s an easy answer to that Steve. The naming rights will expire in a few years so all those supporters then have to do is raise the next £3 million and it can be called the Rose Bowl again. That will ensure the immediate future of Hampshire Cricket just as Ageas have done.
