Hampshire Cricket History

All a bit like the Weather

Yesterday morning woke to find England losing to New Zealand and Mason having a bad time v West Indies. In the evening Hampshire lost to Barbados and then Pompey – like Bournemouth & Saints at the weekend – lost a game they needed to win

Today England A are in a worse state, while Mason made a ‘duck’ and probably won’t bowl as the home side look like winning easily

I think we should all become Aldershot supporters

(NB: expecting news of the 2020 T20 ground allocations today. I’m SO excited)

Maybe the clubs/grounds have been informed of the decision but the news hasn’t been made public? That’s probably the case. “Cricket News” said last week that “counties will find out on February 14 whether they have been successful with their application to host one of the eight teams …”. Apparently no decision has been made about team names, and the paper reported, “city names may still be included …”

It is on the Hampshire website.
The Ageas to be a venue for the new franchise.

“2020-2024: Hampshire Cricket is delighted to announce that the Ageas Bowl has been chosen as one of the host venues for this ground breaking new competition and has also been awarded a total of seven England International fixtures during this period”.

There’s a surprise! I can’t find anything about the complete allocation

100 overs of ODI Cricket, and 240 overs of T20 scheduled 2020-2024.

And 0 Tests [450 overs each].

Just seen the press release. Over the period 2020-2024 the Ageas Bowl will not host a test match, and will host only one 50 over international (2023) but six 2020 internationals. It will also be a venue for one of the 2020 franchises. (As expected Cardiff picks up the eighth 2020 franchise, so nothing for Taunton and Bristol.) Disappointing from my point of view. +

I can’t help feeling that Hampshire has always wanted to identify itself as the home of T20s and is being rewarded accordingly
