Hampshire Cricket History

For England, the big scorers in County Cricket were small scorers in the Test. Jennings was lbw but if he’d reviewed it, he’d have been not out. Ballance was lbw and reviewed it, but was plumb.

For Hampshire, Holland did well this morning and saved the legs of Abbott and Edwards. They took 22 overs to dismiss Surrey, plus two for change of innings. It depends who bowls, but I guess they have around 70 overs left to dismiss them again. There seems little sign so far of the pitch helping the spinners, but let’s hope.

PS Somerset & Warwickshire might both win, which would make things interesting

Surrey have already avoided their largest innings defeat v Hampshire which some of you might remember – 1986 at Basingstoke by inns & 193 runs. Surrey all out 64 in 2nd inns and Tim Tremlett’s match figures were 6-31.

The Test has been interesting today (apart from the over rate) although (5.30pm) still waiting to see Dawson arrive.

At the Oval, the match finished just three runs short of being included in Hampshire’s list of highest aggregates on Cricket Archive – the final figure was 1297 runs for 20 wickets.

On the first evening, Craig White told Kevan James it was a “very good” pitch; the best they had seen for some time. I guess it depends on your definition of good? In the context, Holland’s match figures were very creditable, but it seems Crane has had a couple of games to forget (this plus the Lions v South Africa).

Coming from Pompey, am I allowed to say ‘OK, bring on Mickey Mouse’?

I wondered earlier in the week if the Cheltenham wicket might prove to be a better cricket wicket than those at The Oval and Beckenham. The game there may have only lasted two days but I’d argue that it provided far more of a game than the other two.

I just posted that and Root has gone – come on down Liam Dawson

I just posted that and for the second time today, South Africa took a ‘wicket’ with a no ball! Stay where you are Liam!

From the Oval, Adams and Holland are not in the T20 15-man squad. There is a Hampshire-born player however, Chris Wood, plus Carberry, Smith, Wheal, Afridi and Topley. No place for Alsop.

A quiet afternoon at the Oval so alas no more Hants records to photograph today, some other snaps from this week (and long ago) at bythesightscreen.com.

Readers may find traces of opinion:)
