So it’ll be a draw then, not enough overs to get 8 wickets.

Comment by Paul

And probably not enough dry weather either.

Comment by James

3 wickets to get but looks like weather will be the winner. The 10th wicket partnership yesterday may be the difference between winning and drawing.

Comment by Tigger Miles

One rain break now only one wicket to take. Ervine with his offies got the 9th

Comment by Paul

Ervine very happy again as he takes the last wicket. Hampshire by an innings and 94.

Comment by Paul

Thank goodness the forecast was wrong. Great win and we are now top.

Comment by Tigger Miles

An excellent win!

Comment by James

So are we bowling better? The pitch may have been prepared a little more for the spinners (Kevan J said that i think). Or are the batsmen the difference? I cant help feeling a year ago the outcome would have been the other way round. A great day – I’ll even forgive them for not taking a wicket yesterday when I visited!

Never trust a weather forecast……..completely

Never try to scrap/drop a decent player too soon…….brilliant match for Sean Ervine

Never stop believing……😊

Differently prepared pitch. In fact Richard Ellison the CLO for the match said first he had seen like that. However he rated it above average (there is only 4 ratings – above average, below average, poor and unplayable).

I think Hampshire looked at the preparation at Somerset and followed.

Ellison said that Taunton was the new standard. That was rated above average as well for our game.

Well done Hampshire

Comment by Ron Griffiths

Can you have ‘above average’ and ‘below average’ without an ‘average’??

Yes, well done Hampshire. Next up SA ‘A’ (first-class game) but it will be interesting to see who makes way for Vince and Dawson at Old Trafford. Surely Adams and Ervine have cemented their places for the time being. Did Salisbury do enough to stop him being added to the list of ‘one-match wonders’ . . ? I don’t think we have seen the last of Holland..

Comment by Bob Elliott

With regard to your first point Bob don’t forget this is the ECB we are talking about so there isn’t necessarily going to be much logic applied.

I totally agree with your thoughts on Adams, Ervine and Holland and would suggest that so far Salisbury looks the best former Essex bowler on the staff!

Comment by James

The rain started as we went back to the car. I could count the spectators yet there were loads more cars even ignoring those in the top corner it really is a mystery!

Comment by Paul

The revised daily wicket-taking schedule for day four, after that fine win, is now 16 wickets at 11.8 overs each.
