Hampshire put in and lost Carberry in the first over (0-1) and Wheater in the second over (1-2)

Good job Procter’s not playing!

PS: Hampshire were 49-6 at Bristol in a C&G game in 2004. They did make 154, but lost by 3 wickets

1.45pm start – 34 overs per side

(Previously on today’s Blog: No surprise – start delayed. Next inspection, 12.45pm. Kevin Howells on Radio 5 confirms it’s very wet – water over boots. 11.45am Reporters suggesting maybe 2pm start, maybe 30 overs match. There are NO lights)

I’m having trouble reconciling the reduction in overs with a previous blog comment (from Tigger) about there being a reserve day. Is the reserve day used only in the event that a minimum number of overs cannot be bowled on the first day?

The same thing happened at Trent Bridge last night. Basically the order of preference is (1) full 50 overs per side (2) Reduced overs on Day One, minimum 10 overs each & D/L if necessary. The reserve day is only used these days if it seems or is absolutely impossible to finish on day one. I think this is predominantly to help TV (what isn’t?)
