Hampshire Cricket History


Who plays?

I’m in no doubt that modern professional T20 demands skills and tactics we never dreamed of when we played it on Tuesday nights around the Portsmouth area 30 years ago but I’m still unable to raise much excitement at the prospect of watching it live – not least because of all the attendant noise and fuss. Still it starts this week (no I won’t be there) and Hampshire are reigning Champions so they’ll be featured on Sky – will KP appear for Surrey? More to the point, who bowls for Hampshire? Not Briggs who is with England and maybe not the captain after his back spasm on Saturday – I’ve had a few in my time and they can last a bit.

So, Tanvir, Dawson, Wood, Ervine and  … Griffiths? Riazuddin? Balcombe/Tomlinson? And will Carberry be fit to bat? Hampshire’s first team squad is quite small this year and has been very lucky with injuries and other departures – perhaps not this week.

I followed the match on Cricinfo in Cornwall. No tv and no access to this site except as a comment. It looks like an efficient performance and I’m intrigued by Briggs appearance. Presumably England, having lost two 20 over matches this week are sticking with same bowlers? It appears Danny bowled very well, as did David G in the absence of the skipper. His sub, McKenzie batted well I guess, so too Carberry. Back to normal tomorrow. Well played Hampshire
