Change of photo: Thanks to Ian Pearce, who captured the dismissal of Foakes off the bowling of Fidel (Kevan James enjoyed that spell!)

Hants doing pretty well. 641-4 declared is the highest score ever by Hampshire when they failed to bowl out their opponents (Notts) to enforce the follow on. It was in July 2004 (Crawley 301* and Michael Clarke two centuries). Notts replied with 612. So if Surrey avoid the follow-on in this match, it will break that record.

PS While I was typing this Foakes went, 10 minutes later Curran. Edwards is ‘warmed up’ at last, and the follow-on looks highly probable. What fun!

Hants 2nd XI today, a T20 double-header:

Hants 144-9 (Organ 39, Taylor 30) beat Somerset 119 (Taylor 3-23, Topley 2-15, Wheal 2-21, Salisbury 2-29)

Somerset 122-5 (Sole 3-10, Topley 2-22) v Hants 14-1 (4.40pm)

Afridi is playing in this second match. Carberry out twice for 13 & 6.

Later: 83-1: Alsop 19* from 27 balls, wicketkeeper Dickinson 57* from 27

Hampshire 2nd XI won the second game – 128-3. Dickinson was out for 57. A promising young batsman called Alsop was 42*. Afridi out for 11.

Ah! Afridi . .

Who will play in the ‘Bash’?

1 . Alsop, Adams, Carberry
2 . Rossouw
3 . Vince
4 . Bailey
5 . Holland, Ervine
6 . Dawson
7 , Dickinson, McManus
8 . Afridi
9. Crane, Taylor
10. Abbott, Berg
11. Edwards, Wood, Topley, Wheal

That’s my guess, in order from the left if you see what I mean . .

Not Dawson Bob, at least not at the start. He’s playing that strange version in white clothes at Lord’s … Dickinson an interesting call – be good to see a South African in Hampshire’s team!!

Whoops, Taylor for Dawson then.

Comment by Bob Elliott

Fidel was really quite lively after tea, although a bit ‘Devon Malcom’ as well.

A Devon like performance tomorrow would be good.

Comment by stephenfh

The 9-57 Devon? Worked very hard today but but ultimately the pitch will probably win this one.

Comment by Ian

Nice comparison! If Hampshire win it, they will be excellent tomorrow. At least the forecast seems ok.

Comment by pompeypop

there are thunderstorms around. if one hits The Oval or Lords then it will delay play for some time.

Comment by Tigger Miles

They – or heavy downpours – were threatened for the south coast overnight, moving up towards London. I’ve been for a walk along Southsea seafront this morning on dry pavements, warm enough in shorts and under sun and blue skies. No sign of any turbulence, so maybe ok today.
