We’re about one third through the Championship season and Hampshire are fifth behind, Northants, Lancashire, Essex and Worcs. They made a good start with the bat:

v Leics they were 308-5 and 454-7 dec

v Worcs they were 319-5 and 493 all out (96 for 8th by Wood & Adams)

but since then, the batsmen have struggled rather more

v Essex 129-5 became 197 all out and in 2nd innings 144-5 was 199 all out

v Gloucs 58-5 improved to 274 thanks to 128 for 9th wicket by Briggs and Adams

v Lancs 138-5 became 258 all out (57 for 9th wicket by Bailey & Briggs)

in the current match v Northants their 5th wicket went at 143.

Northants have three bowlers in the top six of Div Two wicket-takers, so it’s no surprise that they are top although Chapple is the leading Lancastrian with 16 wickets, at number 12. For Hampshire, Tomlinson is eighth with 20 at 19.45. Balcombe is at no. 24 (12 wickets) and Briggs at 26 (11).
