Hampshire Cricket History

That’s the name of the game

Essex blew it so they have nine points still, and must play their last game v Gloucs (A)

Then in order by run-rate:

Hampshire eight points v Somerset (H)

Kent eight points v Sussex (A)

Middlesex eight points v Surrey (H)

Surrey six points v Glams (H) & Middx (A)

However, if the awful weather forecast is correct for tomorrow, Surrey & Glams will take one point each which means Surrey can only get nine points – and if (again) they then beat Middlesex, a victory for Hampshire on Tuesday will take them through regardless of other results.

PS – If things go particularly well on Tuesday a home quarter-final is still possible. We need a particularly fine performance from Benny Howell!

While we’re on good news, 2250 was the attendance at the Bowl for the Vipers game. A very nice afternoon, a reminder that it is a lovely game!

Comment by Jeremy

and the Vipers is close to a city-based franchise? I really don’t know if that is a “good thing”.
As long as first-class cricket keeps its presence, I’ll be OK with it. Shame there may not be so many fixtures.
T20 is T20. I guess the money is key.

On the BBC Website tonight, our new skipper, the heroic Liam Dawson, is quoted as saying: “We can potentially have three more games in white-ball cricket …”

So, that’s Tuesday against Somerset, a Quarter-Final and a Semi-Final. Shame about Lord’s though.

I expect he forgot about quarters. At least we have a captain if Vince does leave to strength the Middlesex 2s!

Comment by Paul

Liam captained the England U-19s some years ago. He’s always struck me as a potential captain. There again, Vince never did, but I think he’s pretty impressive in the role.

I’ve thoughLiam would make a good captain.

Lancashire have released Gavin Griffiths today

Comment by Ageas

Very interesting – occasionally had some ‘tap’ and apparently only playing T20 (?) but I’ve quite liked the look of him and he’s young. Will we sign him? More to the point is Josh McCoy a potential, genuine, Hampshire-born pace bowler? How close is he to a first team place? Not quite yet I guess. Part of the Academy side who won again on Saturday while the opposing opening bowler took three wickets – a chap called Jack Bransgrove.

Comment by pompeypop

Have just noticed that tomorrow’s game starts at 1.30

This is also now reflected on the club website’s fixtures page although on Saturday morning it still showed a 2.00 start time despite the BBC advertising the earlier start time for at least a week.

(Dave, would you like to highlight this in a new post?).
