Hampshire Cricket History

Pitch it Right

(Applies to every song)

Lord’s/Middlesex remains the toughest place to take wickets and that might be key for the last round shoot out. A wicket every 12.3 overs or 7/8 per day

Hampshire’s is now third slowest at one every 11.23 overs (8 per day). That’s not quick enough to beat Durham.

The Oval has now slipped between those two at 11.40

Three regular grounds come in below 9.6 overs (ie 10 wickets per day, 40 per match). They are Edgbaston (9.25), Taunton (9.31) and Headingley (9.49). Trent Bridge is just over at 9.74 overs. Durham and Old Trafford are the other two: both at 11+.

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in, hoping we produce a result wicket. Problem is if we go the Somerset route Mr Pigot will on us like a ton of bricks.

Perhaps if Groundsmen and Administrators switched jobs it’d be a win win?

Or alternately switch pitch inspectors with groundsmen and we would have perfect cricket wickets every week wouldn’t we?
