Hampshire Cricket History


Record Breaking Day

James Vince finished the T20 season with highest aggregate ever in English T20.

Hampshire’s score v Lancashire was the lowest ever on T20 Finals Day, fewer then Somerset’s v Hampshire.

PS: Thanks for responses pointing out lower scores. I did a dumb thing and paid attention to Sky without checking (I can’t check everything so well done out there!)

As far as I can tell, it means that 115 yesterday was the lowest Finals Day score by a side in a scheduled 20 over innings that went into the 20th over – almost certainly adding, under a Conservative Government, when Chelsea lost at home and the weather was better up north than down south.

Surrey were indeed dismissed for 92 in 13.3 overs in 2013 but it was in a Final restricted to 18 overs because of rain (and anyway it was a Coalition Government)

We were dismissed for 101 last year but again (etc)

OK – enough of T20 which is a nasty little thing anyway, somewhat resembling Gollum. Back to the proper stuff and my prediction that Hampshire are on a winning streak which will pull them clear of relegation. Now I’m off to the seafront again, to check out some Super Furry Animals (???) and a bloke singing “Waterloo Sunset” (I hope)

James also had the highest individual score of finals day.

Excluding DL adjusted scores?

Must be as last year we only scored 101 but that was in 14 overs.

According to the official programme the lowest finals day score is 92 by Surrsy in 2013

I assume that they (Sky) were talking only about innings lasting 20 overs (or in our case scheduled for 20, ending in the 20th) but who knows? I can’t be bothered to check (forgive me!). Maybe our innings last year was the lowest of the lot, all out?
On Finals Days we’ve scored 157-4 (SF), 173-5 (F), 126-4 (S), 150-6 (F) all of which we won and then in losing semi finals: 142-9, 101 & 115.

In the first year, 2010, Vince, Carberry, Ervine, Wood & Briggs all played in the first final (as did Adams), while Dawson played nine games that year so there was plenty of experience in the side (add Shah, Smith and two overseas pace bowlers). It’s difficult to know why they don’t perform at Edgbaston isn’t it?

It is difficult to know. However, I reckon James Vince was the only batsman in any of the teams to properly get used to what appeared to be a somewhat tricky wicket.
