Reports from Bob (cheers):

Yesterday – Hampshire fielding at Hove (50-over game) – KJ report at mid-day – Sussex 64-3. Wheal, Stevenson, Hart, one wicket each. (Later) Hampshire won a ‘thrilling’ game, says KJ.

Also Yesterday (I’ve no idea who this game was against) Devon 300+ for 7, at tea at the ‘Bowl

Today: Sussex batting in a 45-over ‘red-ball’ game today. Topley and Abbott opened the bowling.

Is cricket getting weirder by the day? 50 overs ‘white-ball’ game, followed by 45 overs red-ball

The 2nds are playing on the main pitch, against Devon, yesterday and today.

Comment by Bob Elliott

Looking at the players already mentioned at Hove I’m wondering who’s left in the 2nds. Did you get a game Bob?

Ha Ha! I don’t know who was in the Hampshire side. There were about 20 supporters scattered around. Tommo was around as one of the coaches. He also gleefully told me that Appleshaw was in Hampshire, but not in my book, which will be ‘launched’ this evening at Hursley.

I always had one or two people who would tell me about errors in the Handbook – mostly helpful, but one guy used to write me a list (fortunately not too long). One year I suggested that the next list should have two columns, the first listing all the good things!

But don’t worry Bob. I’m just completing a new book about popular music and I’m currently proof-reading the 8th version and still finding one or two things …

Good luck tonight, I hope it goes well.

Sussex 92 -2 at lunch off 31 overs

Comment by Ageas

Sussex 139-4 innings closed at 45 overs.

Comment by John Cottrell

Thanks John – sounds like ‘real’ cricket!

I can’t find any Hampshire scores on Cricinfo but the Devon game is one listed on CricHQ – in their 2nd innings Hampshire are 308-5 and Chris Wood has a century; Brad Taylor out for 64. They were also the two most economical bowlers, while G Neave who was Pompey’s Physio when I was a lad, took three wickets. It might be a different G Neave of course, just as the wicketkeeper Dickinson is not Jimmy. No sign of a Sydenham or a Paine.

Two hours later, Devon batting again and looking likely winners. Didn’t A Barrow play for Somerset? Do you think he spends his winters in the groundsman’s hut? (a barrow …)

By 7pm the scorecard was not showing on either the Live matches or on the Results – it’s just vanished. I’m wondering whether the Lion returned to the golf course and the scorers have been eaten?

Comment by pompeypop

It is still on CricInfo with full scorecard. Devon won by 8 wkts.
It is under “Results” but you have to plough through a lot of results to get there as it stays listed on the date the match started.

Comment by John Cottrell

I guess the 45 overs a side was just to halve the available overs in the day……….great to see that Liam Dawson took two wickets and was the top scorer with 63.

Looking really good for the upcoming season 😊

Were you there? If not, how do you know Jo? I can’t find it anywhere

Comment by pompeypop

Hampshire twitter has regular updates. Hampshire finished the 45 overs but scored 165 runs to Sussex 139.

Comment by John Cottrell

Ha….no….not there…..but John was right……the ever faithful Twitter was my source of info….

Great to see Michael Carberry back with a century today & the very warm applause that celebrated it. A heartwarming moment that I’m sure many if us feared we wouldn’t see again……especially this soon.

Comment by joster69

Thanks John. I’d forgotten about being a twit during the winter. Cheers

Comment by pompeypop

I guess Jo was right about the 90 overs on Friday being divided 45/45 for the red ball game SO HOW COME they managed to bowl 50/50 on Thursday with a white ball? Is this preparation for the season and all part of the on-going strategy to short-change fans of first-class cricket who used to regularly get 110 + overs in a day? How long before the Championship shifts to 90 per day ‘in-line with Test Matches’?
