Hampshire Cricket History

Hampshire have avoided the follow-on. Surely that message was inconceivable last night. As I mentioned on Sunday, Hampshire have won more matches than they have lost at Headingley and now it will be very disappointing if that is not still the case this time tomorrow. Congratulations to them all.

Even the 2nd XI have improved now! Chasing 642 to win they are 56-0 (Weatherley 34*). They might not win though …

Bit of a long shot – even Rod Marsh may give this a miss

Brilliant effort today, well done to all the team. Wheater and Ervine broke the best 7th wkt partnership v Yorkshire. McLaren and Wood are only 16 away from beating the best 9th wkt.

Cheers Tigger – brilliant it certainly was!

What a day here at Headingley. I tried to clarify the points deductions question – Cricinfo still showing 4 counties with deductions. I thought the ECB site – ho ho! – would answer the question. There is a a link to Specsavers County Championship Division One – which leads to the table as at September last year

My impression is they’ve also dumbed down their scorecards – which used to list every interruption in play so you could see if there’d been rain delays etc…

And the daily video highlights seem to have been dispensed with?

But they remain fully committed to 4day cricket etc etc…

OK, found the highlights, duh!

But it’s an atrocious website – navigation is not intuitive so it’s difficult to find things – and the content is poor. Two examples – the Championship was the LV= Championship last year, so how can the link mentioned above to the Specsavers Championship lead to last year’s table? (And this year’s table is uncomfortable); the conditions of play for this year’s competitions are an unsearchable 60 page PDF: try finding something from that on a mobile phone!

Apologies – for uncomfortable read unfindable – another triumph for autofill

A truly remarkable day.

Just a pity we have to first be so bad in order to be so good.

Absolutely BRILLIANT today. Vincey looked world class, Sean’s spirit and determination, especially injured, was inspirational and the contributions from Adam, Ryan and Woody priceless.

Talk about extreme highs and lows. Some Yorkshire people were being a tad cruel and suggesting Fidel’s bowling figures must be the worst wicketless bowling for Hampshire. I’ve checked a few of the highest scoring games and Alec Kennedy once had 0-158 against Australia in 1921 and he really is one of our greatest ever bowlers and i’m sure our statisticians will find other occasions. Every confidence in Fidel. He played a huge part in keeping us up last season and i’m sure he will be instrumental in our consolidating this season.

AND Adil Rashid had figures of 0-146 against us at the Rose Bowl in 2011 when Carbs and Neil McKenzie had that 523 partnership !!!

Still a lot of work to do today. Seen enough of Yorkshire to be aware of the wounded animal fighting back.

Last night topped off the day with Bradford Park Avenue winning the County Cup at Valley Parade and results in the other League matches played meaning we avoided relegation as well.

What a day !!!

Bradford Park Avenue now that brings back memories Richard. They featured in the first ever football league match I saw. Brentford 1 Bradford Park Avenue 1 in April 1967. Happy days!

Comment by James

We didn’t do reet well that season so a point at Brentford was a good result. We still finished second bottom though!! But we beat Bradford City home & away so Happy Days

Comment by Richard Griffiths

Pretty good Richard … bit of a shame about York City though, not least as I’m off to Fratton Park on Saturday for my annual visit (actually not quite true – didn’t go once last season). Still it couldn’t spoil my pleasure in yesterday. As for the ECB and their websites etc, what’s the betting it’ll all be flowing smoothly come the Super Bash or whatever they’re calling it this year.

Comment by pompeypop

I’m glad I’m not the only one that has trouble finding stuff on the ECB website. It is really bad.
