Hampshire Cricket History

Playing Away

To the close last night, Hampshire’s bowlers had taken 45 wickets this season

36 of those (80%) by South Africans, four by a West Indian, one by Sean Ervine (Zimbabwe) and four by Liam Dawson.

PS Just back from the ‘paper shop with belatedly, my copy of the Cricket Paper. Front page story “War of the Worlds: Wounded Tykes get the big guns out for Hants battle …”

Well I guess the “big guns” might benefit from playing a bit more, although that’s not their fault. The Yorkshire coach Andrew Gale said “We were wounded about what happened in the first game. We’re going down there to win, that’s for sure”.

Well maybe he got the “going down” bit right – at least this weekend. A win from here would be more astonishing than Hampshire’s a couple of weeks back.

Sorry I missed you Dave. I was there but didn’t see you. You certainly bought us some luck. I was disappointed the radio commentary ended after lunch as the BBC decided football was more important! I would have loved to hear Kevin’s view particularly as he said several times that whatever we score Yorkshire will better. They still might of course but let’s hope not. Maybe catch up with you next time you are down.

Cheers Tigger – I hope things go well today too. I’m planning to come over to a couple of the 50 overs games (Glams & Sussex) so I’ll look out for you.

The Southampton ‘Pink’ devotes Hampshire cricket eight of its pages today. Amongst the articles on Bailey, Rossouw, and Topley, there is also a piece about a litle yellow book that is available in the shop . . 😉
