Another from Paul (cheers) – it says at the end “Cricket has no boundaries” but here’s ‘Carbs’ about to clear the ropes!

Half time: I’ve been checking Tigger’s site but I don’t think we’ve had any new records yet (?)

One day batting of the highest order by first Vince -majestic – and Carbs -so good to see him back to his very best

Comment by Peter Jeffs

Middlesex have just passed their record lowest v Hants (121) and Southee & Simpson have a new record for the 8th wkt v Hants, passing 51 by two fine Hampshire names, Udal & Murtagh! All such facts courtesy of Tigger of course (cheers)

I wonder whether any 8th wicket partnership has ever before more than doubled a T20 score? I don’t think I should ask Tigger to check! (74-7 followed by 86-0)

You can ask Dave but the answer could take a while. Another great win, at one stage I was thinking 200+ and if Vince had stayed it might have been 250+.

Comment by Tigger Miles

Agree wholeheartedly with Peter. Also, Mason Crane tied them up in knots when we bowled. He embarrassed their batsmen in his final over. Won playing at 80 per cent. Poor in our last four overs when batting, some strange death bowling and two missed stumpings (oh for Michael Bates) and two dropped catches in the outfield. Some compensation with a stunning catch by Russouw in the covers and a Bailey run out. A good win with some memorable highlights.

Delete “last” in second line.

After Carbs hit the six in the photo which took him to 63 he didn’t get much strike and at the other end they came and went. This ensured we didn’t get to 200+.
McManus missed a stumping against Sussex as well.

I rarely watch any T20 cricket but when I have “bowling” seems to consist of pitching the ball (if at all) anywhere other than on a length. Must make keeping very difficult.
