Hampshire Cricket History

2nd XI T20 v Middx (2nd)
July 27, 2017, 2:20 pm
Filed under: Uncategorized

(3.20) Hampshire 34-1 in the sixth over. Alsop (10*) joined by Adams, Dickinson gone for 12.

(Meanwhile the ‘English’ South Africans are doing rather less well than the South African South Africans.)

12 overs: Hampshire struggling on 59-5: Dickinson 12, Organ 12, Alsop 10, Holland 4, Adams (run out) 3.

Hampshire 128-7 from 19.5 overs. It says the innings has finished, so maybe they declared. Ryan Stevenson with 19* top-scored

Middlesex 86-5 in the 13th, need one run per ball – Lintott has three wickets.

Middlesex won by four wickets with two overs remaining. Lintott took 4-18 in his four overs. Middlesex took the day 2-0

That concludes today’s correspondence.

Will you be back tomorrow?

Indeed I shall Paul! Although I fear the rain will follow. There are incidentally a couple of T20 games tonight that will affect Hampshire’s southern table.

I was in London on Tuesday, so saw this letter in the Standard that I thought you’d enjoy following the “Brearley Arlott” chat!:

Spare viewers T20’s schoolboy joshing

“THE recent coverage of the NatWest T20 Blast on Sky Sports has been ruined by the antics of commentators Andrew Flintoff and Shane Warne.

There’s no doubt that both men were great international cricketers, and should have much to offer in terms of insight on red-ball and whiteball cricket. However, their sparring during the Surrey v Middlesex match last Friday evening was demeaning to their fellow cricketers and an insult to the commentators they work with.

We know that the style of cricket and commentary has changed radically with the rise of T20. This quicker format is supposed to be the future of the game and administrators have recently suggested a blueprint for the reorganisation of this form of cricket for counties in England.

But T20 cricket is not a comedy programme and commentators are not stand-up comedians. They have years of cricket knowledge and should impart that to a wide audience of cricket followers. One commentator described this new, crass approach as “sixth-form joshing”. I would much rather we were given their insight, wry anecdotes and respect for players, supporters and fellow commentators.

Perhaps then the T20 coverage on TV might be worth following.”

Sums up T20 for me – clowns on the pitch and clowns off it!

Comment by James

And absolutely “Hear, Hear” to that letter writer (and James) – Flintoff is simply appalling and probably setting the future trend, but I suspect it is another part of cricket’s future I shan’t engage with. Many thanks Jeremy.
