Hampshire Cricket History

2nd XI

They’ve started v Gloucs at Basingstoke a day late: 90-0, and it’s on CricHQ as a 20 June match despite no play yesterday. Joe Weatherley has 52 and Jimmy Adams, going along more steadily, half that. Meanwhile, assuming he plays, good luck to James Vince for a score today. Since he went off to the Tests, his highest is the 41 v Surrey last week (Royal London).

(Later) I notice the pundits predicting that James is unlikely to play, but they also think he will appear in the next Test Match. In which case, why not release him from the one-day stuff and let him come back to play at least part of the forthcoming block of four Championship matches? (There are two clear matches, v Somerset and Durham before the first Test v Pakistan)

2nd XI update: Weatherley went one run later and lunch (I assume) is 128-1 with Adams on 47* after 35 overs, and Will Smith alongside him, also in search of some form.

(3pm) Will Smith gone to Chris Liddle for just 18. Jimmy closing on a century while the highly-rated Felix Organ has 30*. Two runs scored in last 18 balls – in T20 that would be a final total of about 14. It’s a different game!

(Approaching Tea) 286-2, Adams 131*, Organ 62*

(5.30pm) 395-6 Adams out for 169, Organ for 70. Ryan Stevenson approaching 50

Vince is not playing. It’s interesting that Dawson’s strength is in 50 overs so he gets picked for 20 overs and Vince is strongest in white ball so he gets picked for first-class …

Mind you given England’s start (7-2), Vince might play the rest of the series!

What a lovely day it has been (I left Basingstoke at the declaration). Real cricket – a classy Adams and some very good youngsters – I look forward to a Hampshire win tomorrow!
