Hampshire Cricket History

Carberry’s Cracker

Michael Carberry started today on 1,908 T20 runs and ended 83*. I haven’t yet checked where that puts him in T20 records but there cannot be many county batsmen who have scored that many (1,991) * and Hampshire’s score is about what Essex challenged Hampshire with last Friday, when Hampshire’s winning total was the second highest they have ever scored to win a T20 match.

To answer Bob’s query, Hampshire have requested one of the matches on Thursday to allow them to recover from the Championship match v Glams and the game v Bangladesh A on Tuesday. Tickets will be available this week with 24 hours priority to anyone who has been to a T20 match this season (including Weds v Middx). Tickets (including members) are £20

* Here’s a list, mostly overseas.


I’ve only had a quick look but it appears that Michael Lumb is (one of) the leading English county players. Sean Ervine, Neil McKenzie and Simon Katich are heavy scorers – oddly Jimmy Adams and MC were level on 1,908 at the start of today.

Incidentally Carberry has scored eight of his T20 runs for England Lions and 286 for Kent, so 1,697 for Hampshire. Ervine has scored 1,751 for Hants including today and is probably highest scorer (Lumb just 1,101 for Hants) while Adams has 1,660 for Hants.

‘Dimi’ has bowled a fine spell and his two wickets take him to 93 career wickets for Hampshire, with at least two more matches and perhaps four more so he might be the first to 100 T20 wickets for Hampshire – he has completed the career T20 double.

1,908 + 83 = 1,991!

However, my point about the Quarter Final is that 2.30 on a Thursday is ridiculous, and cannot be right. I am sure both games will be in the evening, with only one televised.
