Hampshire Cricket History

28 June: Day Three Under Lights

The weather’s not promising is it – so a bit more to ‘chew on’:

With pink balls, the Ageas Bowl has so far produced the slowest scoring. Apart from Somerset, only Warwicks, still batting, are (slightly) slower than Hampshire:

Hants 2.39 per over v Somerset 2.26

Middx 4.15 v Essex 2.94

Lancs 3.39 v Warwicks 2.37* (but today ended on 2.41, so just faster than Hants)

Surrey 4.48 v Yorks 2.49

In Div Two, rates are generally faster: Worcs, Sussex & Gloucs are all in excess of four runs per over; Durham, Notts & Northants more than 3.5; Derbys & Kent three plus, leaving Leics 2.62 and Glams 2.53.

I’ve just seen a midday forecast on BBC which suggests to me that – given how wet everything is already – it can’t be that likely that there will be (much?) play today. Tomorrow looks better, but not necessarily free from showers.

With our current form probably better to take the points from a draw!

Indeed I am but I will wait for the lead story in the cricket news section of our official website entitled “Ageas Bowl announcer enjoys sumptuous breakfast at recently re-themed Beefy’s”.
