Hampshire Cricket History

Lancs day two

A month of bashing it about for 20 overs, then back to the 4-Days, and 53 wickets fall in three Div One games, with only one Englishman (Lyth) and two overseas (Franklin and Ten D) passing fifty. Meanwhile in the Test Match, the three recent Championship recruits score a total of 33 runs. It’s a good day for Liam to get a hundred!

(And I’m just wondering whether it’s England that have asked that Liam should bat in the middle order, rather than open. It might be)

PS It appears I’m not alone (something of a relief these days). I haven’t seen an interview with Liam, but Kevan J tells me that Liam also put the low scores down to the month of T20. Well it’s what the players (PCA) wanted – there’s an old Chinese saying …

(Mind you, neither Hameed nor Jimmy have been playing T20)

Only Ten Doeschate (88) had a higher score than Dawson after the six first division, first innings were completed. Meanwhile before lunch on day two, another 14 wickets have fallen in the three matches – that’s 67 in four sessions (16.75 per session).

The ‘Bowl has got away with it. I have been in Winchester most of the day and there was a monsoon there this afternoon. Back home in Chandlers Ford and it’s been raining heavily here for the last two hours.

Goodness, still bright sunshine here in Pompey but I see that Worcester and Taunton have been off, so I guess the weather is moving across from the west. I think Weds is a poor forecast, but it might not last that long.
