Hampshire Cricket History


On the Run

In recent years Hampshire have been a pretty good limited overs side. I looked back at other teams that enjoyed a run of trophies in any of the limited overs competitions, in a reasonably short space of time, and found six teams with more trophies and/or a shorter time span than Hampshire’s recent run – and bearing in mind that some good performances by them over the past three seasons have not yielded a single trophy.

It’s interesting that neither Yorkshire nor Surrey get a mention (nor Derbyshire, Durham, Glamorgan or Northants). It is worth adding that a number of sides listed here were also winning the Championship around the same time.

GLOUCESTERSHIRE: 1999 (2), 2000 (3), 2003, 2004 – Seven trophies in six seasons
