Hampshire Cricket History


A Strange Parallel

Yorkshire won the title in 1959 & 1960. They also won it in 2014 & 2015.

In 1961, the top two with two games to play were Hampshire & Yorkshire and they were due to meet in the final match (at Bournemouth) which people expected to be the decider.

Except that in the penultimate games, Hampshire beat Derbyshire and Yorkshire failed to beat Warwickshire, so Hampshire were Champions

In 2016, the top two with two games to play are Middlesex & Yorkshire and they are due to meet in the final match (at Lord’s) which people expect to be the decider

Except for the scores today!

(Which also suggest incidentally that Durham could be virtually safe when they play us next week)
