Hampshire Cricket History

A Contrast

The Notts tail was blown away this afternoon and I’m still feeling really surprised by it. Christian was simply done for pace, Patel decided to perish ‘going for it’ instead of securing the draw, while the dismissals of Hutton and Gurney were a mixture of the brainless and the fearful. Compare that with Crane (who didn’t enjoy the quick stuff) and Tomlinson for Hampshire, who in their two 10th wicket partnerships in the match, added 57 for once out in 16 overs.

For video highlights one can visit the Nottinghamshire web site. By contrast the “Hampshire Cricket TV” page is sadly still basking in the delights of a Cricket in the Community visit from December 16th. I’ve not visited all the county websites but I fear that Hampshire’s effort is languishing in the Second Division in that regard.

It was a great game, as Dave said on Solent, exactly what the Champo is about.

The Cricket Paper article posted in the Atrium was interesting, and quoted our MCC (Members Committee Chairman 😉 ).

But what exactly is the point of putting our views to the plc board? We know they’re not going to the ECB in any powerful way, because RGB’s view is very different.

Perhaps the various county MCC’s should club together so that the 80,000 who support the game day in day out get heard, rather than their views simply dismissed by multiple administrators whose visions in the past have got us to where we are now, suggesting it might be a little dodgy to follow their lead in future?
