Hampshire Cricket History

Gone with the Wind?

Let’s hope not – it was a bloody cold one yesterday literally and metaphorically. But as Scarlet famously said about tomorrow …

Hampshire came into this game with only on Div One defeat in the last seven and that was the somewhat unlucky ‘punt’ v Yorks at home last September. Can they save this one? Well Vince and Ervine both have a career HS in the 200s, Wheater in the 100s and McLaren made 80-odd last week so … At the very least we might keep them out there for a long while and then following on they might be a bit tired.

Then there’s over rate. Ageas spotted an apparent tightening up and a good thing too – I’ve no sympathy and if we have to provide fodder through Alsop and Smith because Edwards can’t bowl properly, hard luck

But talking of luck – we’re not having much right now are we?

PS 2nd XI:

For Surrey, Wilson scored 96 and Dunn has 5-8 so far. Of our ‘aspirants’, Wheal took 2-86 and Taylor 0-71 while Weatherley went for 6, McManus 0, Stevenson (who did not bowl) 0 and Taylor 1. Our best hope must be one of our not out batsmen whose name is Mead!

I would imagine the (one and only) Mead must be turning in his grave.

An off topic reminder.. the ECB website offers the Hampshire fixtures as an ICS file, which you can then import into your personal online calendar (Google / Apple / Outlook etc).
