Hampshire Cricket History

Quick Test

The Indian opening pair have played 120+ Tests but average around 35 per wicket. Sharma has the most expensive average of any Test bowler with more than 200 wickets. ‘Bumble’ announced all this before asking, who, with 200, has the best average. I didn’t know but guessed right (bias?). Answer in the first Comment.

Malcolm Marshall – and the first three are all West Indians. I had a discussion once with a former Hampshire captain who insisted that Robin Smith was Hampshire’s greatest player. I’m never sure about those absolute judgements, but I wasn’t convinced either that he was ‘greater’ than Malcolm.

2nd XI: Gloucs dismissed for 134 (Hants lead of six – Abbott 4-21, Holland 4-24) Hants 20-1, Organ out again (0 & 11). It doesn’t seem that any of the younger 2nd XI players are currently pressing for promotion (?)

I think Organ has got a stack of runs this season although I haven’t any stats to hand but he seems to have lost form in the last couple of weeks. Holland has also got a lot of runs although he’s not that young of course.

Cheers. I was assuming Holland is closer to being in the first team squad already, so was wondering about Academy/teenage guys.

Match abandoned just after 3pm on day 2. We understand that the wicket was considered “dangerous”.

TMS Commentary reports that Bess & Leach are at Edgbaston (12.30 pm) – presumably not playing for Somerset this evening then?

Comment by pompeypop

Bess and Leach got the booby prize for not being selected for the Test. Just to rub salt into the wound they thought it would be a good idea to do some net bowling with the squad! Neither likely to feature in Somerset’s T20 team so gives them something to do I guess!
