Hampshire Cricket History

‘Interesting’ Day

Not just at the Ageas Bowl but at Derby and Canterbury too – although the word interesting can hide a multitude of sins. Hampshire made a good start and their two spinners brought them back into the game with a long, tight spell, but honours are just about even, the forecast tomorrow is no longer as promising and the star was without doubt Leicestershire’s Angus Robson who scored his first Championship century. Here we see O’Brien score to get Robson (97*) on strike, he lifts the ball over gully to reach the century and acknowledges the applause.

I should also say, having watched a lot of recent one-day cricket in various forms featuring batsmen getting runs by slogging he ball up in the air, how nice it was to see a proper batsman scoring a proper century. Well done Angus Robson!

Yes indeed. He batted very nicely against a fairly varied attack and got them out of a difficult start

He looked very promising.
