In Dawson’s absence Hampshire giving debut to Matt Salisbury, after a couple of 2nd eleven games, having been released by Essex. Brad Taylor overlooked?

Are Bailey and Rousseau a better bet than Smith and Allsop?

Comment by Paul

Probably not …….
Do you mean Rossouw and Alsop…

Comment by John Cottrell

Yeah them as well!

Comment by Paul

The Hampshire born man is 55* at tea and keeping an end open whilst Ervine makes hay at the other end with 109*
Good recovery!

Comment by Paul

Ervine showing his liking for Warwickshire yet again.

Comment by Paul

250 plus partnership from the old timers! Yeeess! Adams and Ervine hit form. A big change from a year ago.

Wow what a day!
Wonder when was the last time two Hampshire Batsmen were not out with 100+ at the end of a days play.
Well done lads

Good question; from memory Barry Richards and Gordon Greenidge both scored not out 100s to win a 60 over match in the 1970s at Northlands Road, thing about Championship records is what was a close of play score/timing of any declaration.

Certainly could be mistaken but Gordon Greenidge and Trevor Jesty at Hove one year as well in the 70s, maybe there have been several other instances much more recently others can remember……..

Vic played club cricket for Farnham after the war before joining Warwickshire.

Not wishing to temp fate but just 16 more needed to beat our all-time first-class record fourth wicket partnership of 278 (Adams & Vince v Yorkshire at Scarborough in 2010).

What a fantastic day, thanks Jo for the video clips, 16 more runs first target of the day. How many will we get?
