(But hopefully not “It’s Over”)

Hampshire need to win in Cardiff (sorry, Swansea) today to keep alive their dreams of another trip to Lord’s

Somerset are through and if Essex beat Middx today they will be too, and also with the home draw. However, they could still be pipped by teams on six points if they lose both and three teams end up on 10 points. Hampshire could be one of them and Middx would have to be another. I think the third team has to be Kent who play the bottom two sides Gloucs and Sussex, since Middx have still to play Surrey …

It’s all so complicated (!) and I think (assuming we win both) that it would suit Hampshire for Essex to beat Middlesex today, then Middlesex beat Surrey, so that Middx, Surrey and Glams can only reach 8 points maximum. But if Essex, Surrey and Kent keep winning and join Somerset at the top, then the run-rate might stuff Hampshire anyway

I think

Sorry Dave but if anyone goes to Cardiff then they will not see Hampshire win or lose as the game is in Swansea…..

Cheers John! Is my attention waning? Still the Welsh won’t mind; it’s only like confusing Southampton with Pompey …

At least I’m not the only unreliable source. With Hampshire 12-0, Cricinfo scores offers its usual odds on the next batsman to be dismissed as Jimmy Adams 1/1 and Will Smith 4/5. Which is fine except Tom Alsop opened with Jimmy!

. . and no Adam Wheater again. Is he sick, or on his way (as was rumoured on Friday night)?

Comment by Bob Elliott

No idea Bob, but I guess it’s no longer Dale B’s idea …

Solent said Wheater still unwell! We seem to have done very well without him. Dawson with unbeaten 100

Comment by Ron Griffiths

Well DB did start the process of shipping Wheater out however maybe he was point for someone else.
Shame ‘cos his batting is good and if he goes he are very short of players in the 26 – 30 group.

I hoped Gloucestershire would defeat Kent however that’s looking a bit unlikely.

Good for the goal difference today which may aid qualification.
