Hampshire Cricket History

And the grounds

Four teams have played two home matches this season so far – all at their headquarters. Average wickets falling have been as follows (rounded up/down)

Surrey: wicket every 12 overs

Hampshire: every 11 overs

Durham: every 10 overs

Notts: every 8 overs

Of those who have played just once, Somerset as mentioned below head the list (16), then Middlesex & Yorkshire (13), Warwickshire (12) and Lancashire (9).

The forecast for the north-west looks clearer now so Old Trafford is pointing towards a positive result – let’s hope it’s positive for Hampshire. Incidentally, tomorrow is the fifth round of Championship matches (no other competitions yet) and Somerset, away again, have had just one game at Taunton.

With the one-day competitions not yet launched I am baffled as why the Championship matches have started on Sunday. I thought the argument for keeping Saturday cricket-free was to allow the players to recuperate from the Splendid Slog matches on Friday nights.

Why are the county executives eschewing a second weekend day of play? Considering the potential for poor weather, doubling up on the weekend options would seem to offer more potential for selling tickets.

I’m sitting watching a game and basking in the sun on Southsea seafront wondering the same thing Hedgehog. We’re about to start the fifth round of the Championship with, as you say, no other cricket. The Championship season will be a quarter through by Weds – it couldn’t be that it suits those in charge to see low attendance figures could it?
