Hampshire Cricket History

I’ve been out all morning and had a late lunch in the garden in beautiful warm sunshine

Then I came indoors to see that it’s raining in the Caribbean!

Meanwhile, Edgbaston continues to provide a fascinating game (Carberry just out). It strikes me that there are three batsmen with Hampshire and possible England ‘links’ in county cricket at present and Carberry’s the only one who might be picked on form and yet the least likely of the three …

PS: Well batted Sean Ervine

PPS: Kevan was asking about run chases which might be indicative – between these two sides, there’s not a lot to offer. In 2011 at Edgbaston, Warwicks were all out 98 chasing 308 – that’ll do tomorrow – and in 2010 Warwicks won both games but in each case chasing less than 100.

In 2007 Hampshire won a superb victory (331-5) but there was a very early declaration and a forfeit. In 2006, Warwicks chased over 400 and were all out 213 and in 2005, Warwicks won by 10 wickets (44-0).

That’s it since two divisional cricket in 2000.

. . and on the Nursery Ground, bat rules over the ball. Surrey are 300+-3, and it’s all quite boring!
