Hampshire Cricket History

It’s just after 5pm and while Notts and Lancs are off for rain at Trent Bridge they have played enough overs for a result and Notts look certain to win – Durham have too. It will then leave the FINAL North Group as

Notts 14 points

Lancs 12 points

Durham 11.75 points

If by some miracle Lancashire win the top two are simply reversed

Hampshire already have 13 points so even with no more points will finish a better second than Lancashire

In the West Division there are no games today but in second place, neither Somerset, Glamorgan or Warwickshire can get more than 12 points

From the ECB Regulations:

“21.10.3 The top two teams from each group and the two best third placed teams will qualify for the Quarter-finals. The top team from each group and the best second placed team will receive home draws in the Quarter-finals.”

So Hampshire are guaranteed a HOME QUARTER FINAL

The fixture card shows the allocated dates and times for the Quarter Finals as 6,7 8 August. Hampshire entertain Bangladesh on th 6th, so presumably they will want the 8th, when two games are scheduled, one bizarrely at 2.30pm! Surely that can’t be right?

I suspect it is since this is always driven by TV times – three evenings and one afternoon – four separate matches. I wonder about Hampshire’s preferred date – assuming the Bangladesh fixture goes ahead. I can’t imagine they’d want any of their XI playing a friendly the day before a lucrative QF. Maybe we’ll get a game Bob!
