Hampshire Cricket History

Fidel in, recently expensive Gareth Berg out.

PS Alsop gets a ‘pair’ (yesterday & today) but unlucky in that the TV showed it going over. There again, he played a reverse sweep on nought.

PPS I think you know that I don’t watch T20 – haven’t been to one since 2016. I did watch on Sky tonight however, where at the finish Rob Key said “that’s as good as county cricket gets”. He’s entitled to say whatever he wishes, and I generally like his commentary but it’s the sort of comment that explains why I’m drifting away from the game.

It struck me that for about 35 overs it was somewhat dull, with neither side quite doing enough to be sure of winning. Then, with about five overs left, Hampshire seemed to have won it, only they didn’t. But a thrilling last over is not the same as a thrilling match – and the the fielding on both sides was distinctly ordinary.

Last two days have been great games in the world of T20 to have been shown on Sky and both with sell out crowds.
Just goes to show this 100 ball nonsense is so not needed, and unwanted by the vast majority,,, especially if twitter is anything to go by.
As we grabbed a tie from the jaws of victory and then defeat , I suppose we would have taken 3 out of 4 pts on Thursday.
The tail looked too long without Bergy…but then without Edwards it lacks the pace threat.
