So there I was, just finished my stint on air and getting a photo of Petersen reaching his 100 – UNTIL


Liam bowled him

Despite which, if this match isn’t a draw, I’ll eat my shirt on air after tea tomorrow!

The winner is the wicket.

But it’s not a good cricket wicket is it?

Comment by James

No it’s not James, it’s a good batting wicket but it’s not a ‘match’. Elsewhere matches are seeing plenty of wickets, interesting finishes, significant results but for Hampshire, nine points is not enough.

Surely we should be preparing result wickets as we do need to win some games..
If we then lose then so be it…better than watching the current bore draw although not at Rose Bowl today. Will Lancs be up for some declaring…..
RB will be happy as this is just playing into his hands to get rid of Championship..

Comment by John Cottrell

Surely no chance of a declaration as there would not be enough time for Hants to get 10 wkts on that pitch?

Comment by Dave Allen

As a member who can only attend Championship games at the weekend I’ve had this one pencilled in for sometime, potential of 2 days of cricket to watch. Attended today with my 14 year old son, we left at tea. He’s very willing but difficult trying to sell today’s play to him, we won’t be coming tomorrow

I can’t blame you Richard (or your son). I claim frequently that first-class cricket is the finest form and needs protection, but on days like today – despite some fine batting and bowling at times – the ‘match’ is dying on its feet. The 50 overs match on Tuesday had more interest. It’s very sad.

Comment by pompeypop

A wicket has fallen every 28.6 overs so far. If Lancs declare immediately and Hants bat for 10 overs setting say 320 in about 80 overs, then Hants would suddenly need to take a wicket every 8 overs to win. Who will take them (is Berg fit)?

Aesthetically or physically??

Sorry…………..but had to be done!
