Hampshire Cricket History

Obvious Change …

Tom Alsop, two matches after top-scoring with 64 on his first appearance of the season has been dropped, and Brad Wheal is in for Mason Crane (leading wicket-taker this year), so lots of overseas men and just two players, Vince and McManus, are home grown.

Tim Tremlett on the radio, suggests Ervine is a bigger hitter than Alsop. This season he’s scored 6, 0 & 2, while Rossouw’s last two innings have been 1 & 4 and he has yet to reach 50. You can imagine how delighted I am – yet again.

PS It gets better doesn’t it? Rossouw has now played 22 innings for Hampshire including the magnificent 150+ at Taunton, and that injured 99 in the Championship. In the other 20 innings,  he hasn’t reached 50 once, and 40 only twice. In his last three T20 innings he has scored just seven runs. Bailey’s six today, follows 8 & 6 in his previous two innings. His best T20 score is 37*.

Interesting too that Somerset have dared to pick their ‘leggie’ Max Waller

So heroics from Hampshire’s Man-of-the-Match Berg but again not good enough by the team OR the selectors. Somerset’s leg-spinner had better figures than any of Hampshire’s bowlers (one more wicket than Topley). There have been four Hampshire half-centuries so far in this year’s T20 by Vince, McManus, Alsop (all home grown) and ‘Carbs’, the next best thing. Bah!

Hampshire are out of the Top Four now and the forecast for Friday is nasty. Tim Tremlett reckoned on radio that they would probably have to win five of the last seven (including Friday) to go through.

The good news? Their 10th wicket partnership was a Hampshire record v Somerset (always look on the …)

A stat, for what it’s worth: Today was the 43rd time since 2003 that Hampshire have lost all 10 wickets in a T20 innings. 15 of those have been the first innings and they won four of them, plus 28 in the second innings – and they have lost all 28 (there might have been a tie or two – but no).
