Hampshire Cricket History

Kent’s Charlie Hartley bowls and the ball appears to be striking his left shoulder but is actually speeding to the square off-side boundary, just after Michael Carberry, the batsman, had reached his half-century. I like this photograph because it confirms the ground’s sponsor and shows today’s spectator (might we start a ‘Spot the Fan’ competition?)

I spent some time in the Archive this afternoon then departed before the M27/Pompey rush-hour and the forecast downpour. The latter has yet to materialise. If anyone (eg Bob Elliott) has a later score than around 120-2 that would be appreciated …

PS: 5pm, pouring in Pompey

Sorry – keep meaning to say that the Kent wicketkeeper is the heavily bearded Adam Rouse.

Hampshire’s Twitter post…….Play has been called off for the day here at @TheAgeasBowl – Hampshire 211-3, Carberry (104*) & McManus (36*).

& that spectator looks to be in full Kent kit & greatly resembles Jimmy Adams (does he not!?)

All together now: “One Jimmy Adams, there’s only one Jimmy Adams …”

Don’t forget the other spectator on the other side of the ground! It’s nice to be watching live cricket again.

Thanks Jo & John. I did watch a bit outdoors this pm and there was a decent collection of followers for such an early friendly game. Who says no one cares for county cricket!

On close up spectator looks like member of ground staff!

Definitely Jimmy Adams…….keeping an eye on his bowlers whilst cradling a ball thrower
