Hampshire Cricket History

It’s a Record! (and a quiz)

Today was the second highest total ever at the Ageas Bowl and possibly (probably) the first time three batsmen have scored hundreds in the same innings there – even more probably the first time with a 99 as well!

The highest score ever at the (Rose) Bowl was v Notts in 2005 (714) – only two centuries but one a triple. Three men who played in that game were playing today – but who were they?

Record 8th wicket partnership for Surrey v anyone

Most overs bowled for Hampshire on the ground in one innings by Mason Crane, although not the most ever for Hampshire (Stuart Boyes 80) or the most for Hampshire v Surrey (Alan Wassell at Bournemouth in 1961). By coincidence, Danny Briggs bowled almost as many today for Sussex at Tunbridge Wells. Darren Flint once bowled the same number as Mason (51) for Hampshire (v Lancashire).

To date a wicket has fallen every 21 overs in this match – although the match is not over yet, to date that is the highest total in Div One all season (previously 17 at Lord’s).

I wonder whether Mason was padded up as nightwatchman?

Anything else (Tigger? Bob?)

The three playing that day for Hampshire were Sean Ervine, Jimmy Adams and Jihn Craley for Hampshire.
John Crawley was on 311* when Shane Warne declared and protected Dick Moore’s record 316 v Warwickshire at Deane Park in 1937.
Will Smith played in the game to (26 and 10) but for Notts. Mind you Notts were under the weather having celebrated their season as Champions for a couple of days!

Fat fingers clearly it was John Crawley that got the 311*

Comment by Terry Crump

The three – Adams and Ervine for Hampshire, Will Smith for Mitts?

Comment by Ageas

The 8th wicket stand of 222* equalled the record 8th wicket stand against us. IJL Trott and CR Woakes also made 222* for Warwickshire at The Rose Bowl in 2009.

The third man was Mark Foottitt who was taken apart by Crawley & Mascarenhas before lunch(finishing with 1-153 from 17 overs) but Notts captain Stephen Fleming kept bowling him for some strange reason.

I recall at lunch (after we had scored 267 runs in the first session) he signed autographs outside the pavilion. A classy act for a 19 year old.

Comment by James

Actually he was the fourth player because as Ageas pointed out Will Smith also played!

Comment by James

You guys are too sharp for me – I’d missed Will Smith. Well done. But Terry, John Crawley? Was he playing today? We could do with him tomorrow!

A certain mate of KP also played in that game and had once played for Notts before he came to Hampshire with KP.
He is now working for the KP Foundation – Richard Logan.

Comment by Terry Crump

Didn’t we sign Logan largely due to an outstanding performance against us, something he never achieved for us?

Comment by James

Dave you know exactly what was meant! Even I didn’t think John was playing in this game! Not only do I wish he was playing but the other century maker (Dimmi) would be sorting things too – with both bat and ball. Oh, for those days!

Comment by Terry Crump

I was confused Terry. You said “the three playing” and I didn’t understand because there were 11 and only two still in this game ??? Why “three”?

Comment by Dave Allen

Bob M has just alerted me to the fact that Mason Crane yesterday conceded the second most runs in an innings for Hampshire, just three short of Udal’s record – also against Surrey at the Oval in 2002 (47-7-213-4)
