Hampshire Cricket History

(Do you remember Stop Press?)

Hampshire made 254-6. Kent just past 100 have lost wickets to Wheal, Tomlinson and McLaren. Did it rain there (it is now in Pompey)?

I’m watching England. It was looking boring until two batsmen went in consecutive balls but England should still win easily. The women were disappointing this morning – at one point a win seemed possible but …

PS England were superb, especially after a difficult start – for a neutral it was a T20 ‘non event’ really

PPS Assuming an unchanged side on Sunday, is this unprecedented? The 15-man England squad includes three Hampshire players (and their former physio). Has any club ever provided 20% of a World Cup squad in any team competition, none of whom played in the Final?

Did it rain??? I saw one hours play after lunch, it rained, it hailed, they took tea, restarted 4.30pm & I saw one wicket before I had to leave at 5pm……early season woes 😕

Did get a quick catch up with KJ though so every cloud……😊

Yes it rained, but they went back out at 4.30. I got engrossed in the Slogathon on tv, and when that finished Kent were still 3 wickets down, when I left as it was too cold . . .

I imagine they were playing till 6o/clock, as there were still lots of overs left.

Upcoming 2nds and MCCU games both on the main ground, but if you go on Saturday the pavilion is being used for a wedding, so for those like me, who can’t sit out in the cold, will be looked after in the Shane Warne Stand (Ageas suite).

Thanks guys. I’m sorry it was a bit miserable. No precipitation in paradise – sorry Pompey – until about 5pm and fairly brief then. I’m at the Bat & Ball on Saturday for the annual pre-season Hambledon Club lunch (nb: not Hambledon CC)
