1922 v Warwicks at Edgbaston, Hampshire 15 all out. No one reached double figures

Groundhog Day?

PS Answer No

Abbott having bowled heroically, bats at number nine and is the first man to reach 10 (+)

PPS Before Tigger asks (and I can’t blame him). I don’t know the last time our 8th wicket doubled the score (+)!

Will Edwards bat, or are we really eight down?

Comment by Dave Allen

Will any of our top six bat in the second innings?

Frankly this is a shambles and a total embarrassment. An opening bowler who has broken down three times in four first-class games this season and a top five who are all dismissed for zero runs in seventeen balls. Can it get any worse?

2005 v Gloucestershire at Cheltenham we were 81-7. Pothas and Bichel put on 257 for the 8th wicket. And we went on and won.

Comment by Tigger MIles

VERY good! Bichel scored a century on debut for Hampshire – one of six men, but they had all played first-class cricket previously. One died in the First World War, but we did once assemble the other five for a photo (in 2005)

We lost 5 wickets on the same score, 65, against Durham at Basingstoke, 2008, recovered to 96 all out.

Went on to make 240 in the 4th innings, winning by 2 wickets, Ervine 94*, a fantastic game, our first return to Basingstoke, due to an REM concert….

VERY good again! These days I just have to ask the question and someone gets the answer. Thanks Jeremy

I’m having a day out tomorrow with Mrs A so will miss the great fight-back (?) but I’ve sent those two excellent replies to Kevan (who sounded very fed-up tonight!). I’ve added your names so I hope you get a mention!
