Will Smith is skipper, Ervine is back in the squad, Andrew is still there and Alsop and Wheal are included. The forecast for Sunday suggests showers

If England win tomorrow can we have Vince until Tuesday to bat against Ball?

I enjoyed seeing Vince getting involved in all aspects of the match.
On the plus side he outscored Compton, Root, Ali and Broad combined, took a catch and nearly claimed a wicket. Less impressively he hit only three scoring shots and in a single over of bowling conceded 11% of Sri Lanka’s total.

So a net -1 runs.

He conceded two fours. One was a short,wide ball that got what it deserved, the other took the edge and flew over slip/gully and might have been a catch. He seemed to be bowling to instruction, short of a length. I’ve heard it said at Hampshire that he’s quicker than he looks but the Sky guys said he was bowling at around 78 mph.

And he started on the winning side in a match that in terms of overs bowled lasted less than two days. Attendances were low on the first two days and I guess they will lose money against tomorrow’s loss.

Who was the last Hampshire player to bowl the 16th, or earlier, 1st innings over for England?

Without checking, Bob Cottam?

(perhaps a trick right answer would be Udal!?)

Comment by Jeremy

Good question! Cottam is a good call but I suspect Alan Mullally OR perhaps someone like Robin Smith/John Crawley at the end of a dull draw when the fourth innings lasted 10 overs???

There’s also Chris Tremlett? Too late to check right now …

Comment by pompeypop

Yes, you must be right, “Twiggy”! Not only that, I was there for his debut at Lords, he came on first change, so must have been in the first 16…
