Hampshire Cricket History

Eight down, Six to go

What an extraordinary day – at the end of which Hampshire took just one point more than Somerset but now stand third in the table. Apart from the rather odd victory against a weakened Yorkshire side, first match up, Hampshire have been stuffed by the sides standing first and second, and have had the better of their two games against the bottom two sides, winning two of three, plus tonight’s draw.

So it’s Surrey away next week, then just a month until the next game, and only another four weeks until the one after that.  Three more home games to come in the best part of three months – two against the current top two.

Yes, ridiculous schedule. We have 4 matches in September ending on 28th. Latest finish ever.

Still some good news

But just live T20 and some of that the even more meaningless T20.

I just hope BBC do cricket full air time and do not interrupt coverage for s uch as the world tiddlywinks championships.
Great effort by both sides last night, good to see captains not just playing for draw points.

Full credit to Bailey’s imaginative and daring captaincy last night, so close to a major win. Must say I have been impressed with his captaincy in several areas – selection-wise, field placing, bowler-changes/handling etc,-which has played a major part in our relatively successful season so far.

I read today one suggestion of Mason Crane being selected in the First Test squad but he’s being smashed about by the South Africans.

Mason is hugely promising but no way is he ready for Test cricket yet. Careers have been ruined by rushing young players, especially spinners, into the team far too soon – remember Simon Kerrigan?

I hope common sense prevails.

Yes indeed – and even Borthwick as a bowler
