Hampshire Cricket History

I’m not about much again today, but add Comments please – especially if you’re there.

It seems, with Edwards fit, that Hampshire’s preferred pace attack is firing well, let’s hope they can sustain it. It’s a shame that the first three are now all 30+ (and all four born abroad) but at least it’s working, and providing an opportunity to emulate the Hampshire side of 1946 (see below) and take the current team to safety. The Somerset and Middlesex games are helping

The batting is inconsistent however, and Kevan James was suggesting yesterday that imminent departures would free up the money to find (ie ‘buy’) another batter. That will be interesting with Bailey returning, and Rossouw fit again – add Vince and a new signing, and what will happen to Alsop and/or Weatherley?

As for Crane, could he end up like those young ‘leggies’ at Sussex (Beer) and Somerset (Waller), specialising in white ball cricket? He’ll soon be the most experienced 12th man in the country.

Wow – 10 wickets, no catches.

Champions! You’re ‘aving a laff.

2nd XI game at Denby CC completely washed out.

I wonder whether enforcing the follow-on gives Essex the best chance of winning? The only time Hampshire enforced the follow-on and lost was v Essex in 1992

If were skipper I might give Ervine or Vince a couple of overs to try and break this partnership
