Hampshire Cricket History

A glimpse of a future?

I’m careful to stress “a future” not the future here

The twelve for tomorrow’s 50 overs game – not one international overseas star in sight:

Carberry, Adams, Alsop, Wheater, Ervine, Dawson, Smith, Berg, Stevenson, Crane, McManus, Wheal.

Three initial thoughts:
1) Do we have any international overseas stars?
2) Might be a bit light on seam bowling with Berg and Stevenson just back from injury
3) Do they still give penalty runs for slow over rates?

Comment by James

hah! Actually I guess Berg & Wheal are ‘overseas’. Over rates penalty runs, yes. And Essex are prone (plus we have no Tino)

Comments on tomorrow’ squad,

Ervine is Captain so plays…… he has played 3 x T20 games and scored just one run and not bowled !!!!!

No Best ….well his T20 bowling is 1-104 from three games so no surprised he is left out.

We are looking short on both batting and bowling at the moment.

Were we not close to conceding some penalty runs v Kent on Thursday due to over rate….

Just a comment on our Run Rate in Championship cricket,

From the six matches played Hampshire average just 2.78 runs per over with our opponents averaging 4.30.

Comment by John Cottrell

We were close on Thursday and possibly escaped only because Sammy limped off. Very interesting run rate figures. It’s no revelation to say we are not dominating but as with our average first innings deficit (above 150) we are almost constantly behind. We just don’t look very good do we?

I see that your O Level was in ‘new’ maths – there’s a squad of 13 according to the club website. You missed out Andrew, I think.
