Hampshire Cricket History

Just in from fish & chips down the local, to see the final Kent score. It’s the first T20 total over 200 by Kent v Hampshire. Still at least the new boy took two of the four wickets.

If Hampshire avoid a third consecutive opening T20 defeat for the first time, it will be some batting effort.

(Incidentally it’s raining in Worcester and Bristol).

There we are then. A brave effort by Dawson, Alsop, McManus & Berg but from 210 & 6-3, they had too much to do. Hampshire’s worst-ever start in a T20 season.

If ifs and ands were pots and pans, there’d be no work for tinkers’ hands. However, if Berg hadn’t bowled two ludicrously bad balls we’d have won.

His analysis is the second most expensive in Hampshire’s history (Razzaq’s 64 in 2010 the most). It pushes Abbott’s analysis in the previous match down to fifth.

Billings’ innings today was the sixth highest ever v Hampshire, but by one run not Kent’s highest v Hants (Symonds)

Here’s a stat I think you’ll like……..

Cheers Jo, good news – and I think we can be confident in this fact, although still unsure precisely how many List A wickets he has. It does mean that Chris is one of very few Hampshire bowlers to have taken 100(+) wickets in all three formats (no, I don’t know off hand!)

He is the only one.

Thanks Tigger. Next? Liam?

Comment by pompeypop

Liam is a fair way off in both List A (87) and TT (68). Give him another 2 seasons and he’ll be there, hopefully!

It is the worse start to a T20 season in terms of straight losses. However, in 2016 we lost 7 of our first 8. Hopefully, we won’t beat that.

There were also two abandoned games in the middle of that, then (having won the second game v Kent) we won the 11th scheduled v Glams and the next one at Hove (by one run) then two more defeats. So overall, nine defeats, three wins, two rained off – among our more notable contributors at times (just two years ago) were Gareth Andrew, Michael Carberry, Shahid Afridi, Adam Wheater, Tino Best, Darren Sammy plus Sean Ervine and Brad Wheal.

Mind you, even last year was odd. We won the first three, then lost two, then one abandoned then lost one, then won one on D/L, then lost one, won one, lost one, won two, lost one and that ‘patchy’ record took us to the QF at Derby, and then the semifinal defeat.

So that was 8 wins, & 7 defeats. In total, since the start of 2016, to date: 11 victories and 19 defeats.

Some facts from last night: It was the 3rd time we have played at Beckenham and we’ve lost all 3. It was the 2nd largest aggregate in a T20 match involving Hampshire. It was Kent’s highest score against us and vice-versa. It was our highest score ever batting 2nd. Finally, we set a new 6th and 7th wicket partnership against Kent.
