Hampshire Cricket History


The Only Way

is for Essex to beat Middlesex (still playing) which will effectively mean that four out of five will go through (it’s not really the only way but you know …)

If Essex do win they join Somerset going through, almost certainly leaving Kent, Surrey and Hampshire to scrap for two places. As Ian says, the goal difference improved incredibly this afternoon and a good victory over Somerset could well be enough whatever the others do.

Excellent win – Dawson has the magic as skipper perhaps? A slight shame that the last two wickets added 70+ as the margin of victory was just three less than Hampshire’s highest ever in 53 years of List A cricket against a first-class county. But it’s no big deal – this was terrific stuff. Well played!

And what seems like a brilliant innings from Liam. Only following on Cricinfo, but he had about 70 odd at more than a run a ball, with only two boundaries. Any idea how many dot balls he faced’? – it can’t have been many. And then the ability to step on it for the last few overs. So pleased he got to 100.

Because our run rate has improved so much we may be in with a chance even if Middx beat Essex as now seems probable
Middx run rate will still be worse than ours
