(You know that one surely?)

Over the next couple of weeks there are T20 matches between Surrey v Sussex, Kent v Essex and Kent v Surrey (etc) – which means that even if Hampshire win the last four matches and reach 12 points they can’t hope to qualify because their goal difference is so poor. If anybody mentions this next week, simply reply “We’ve already said Goodbye”.

All these references to classic sixties songs are great … keep them coming. If all the remaining matches go our way then we can finish joint 4th. We will need to win our matches very well to vastly improve our ‘goal difference’. I think I’m in cloud cuckoo land! At least we can still get to Lords.

I admire your optimism! Well done Tigger

Hampshire have selected 20 players in their ten T20 matches this year with 13 bowlers and two wicketkeepers. Vince’s 62 last night was just the third half-century in 2016. Only Dawson (3-24 at Chelmsford) and Afridi (3-33 in the one win v Kent) have taken three wickets in an innings. In their last six matches that have produced a result, Hampshire have lost them all, equalling the record that Tigger identified over 2003/4 when they lost four plus two matches at the end/beginning of that period.

Last year in 16 matches Hampshire used 17 players. They had one century and 14 half-centuries, while there were seven instances of three wickets or more in an innings (two were four wickets)
