Hampshire Cricket History

Today at the Test

Later this morning Mrs A is catching a boat to the IOW and I’m walking to the university, for my one work session these days. It’s not looking like much of a day to be out there, battling ‘Doris’, and Mrs A, who is not as fond of the sea as I am, is imagining all kinds of disasters!

For now, it’s rather nice to be sitting at home with a cup of coffee watching a Test Match on TV. It’s pretty even so far, but interesting that with the retirement of Adam Voges, there are no ex-Hampshire players in the Australian side (and of course there cannot be any playing for India). I don’t think that’s happened for a while (Watson, Bailey etc).

PS: Evening session. The batsmen are wearing green tops, but batting like England – except for the Englishman (actually Renshaw played for Hampshire didn’t he?)

Simon Renshaw played 38 games for Hampshire. Last known to be playing for Market Harborough CC in 2013. Not one who turns up for the Old Boys Re-union, unfortunately..
