Hampshire Cricket History

McManus out, Alsop has the gloves, Weatherley in. Seemed likely, given the composition of the 2nd XI side where Hampshire, six ahead on first innings are 110-2 with Holland 49*, although (day two) it also says ‘Match Abandoned’.


PS Chris Wood’s 5-32 is Hampshire’s fifth-ever five-for in T20 and of the five, the most runs conceded. Dawson’s 5-17 remains the best v Somerset (thanks Tigger!)

PPS: Tom Alsop chosen over McManus for his batting? He started the T20 season well enough (12, 35* & 41) but has now made three ducks in the past four innings (plus 20).

AND: If someone had told you at 4pm, that Vince would make a big half-century while Wood gets his best-ever T-20 bowling figures, and Dawson his highest-ever T20 score you’d think Hampshire should win.

Funny old game …

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

Comment by John West

Re 2nd XI game abandoned today. I was there today, spoke to groundsman just after umpires had spoken to him. Reason – “too much uneven bounce”. It was obvious this upset the batsmen who wanted more confidence in the wicket. After long discussion at lunch they went out for another hour. Not sure why.

Thanks Martin & John. Very odd

A tale of two West Indian fast bowlers tonight. Fidel – 0-50 with 27(?) of his last over; Jerome 5-15.
But good batting by Vince & Dawson

Comment by Dave Pople

Checking, Fidel went for 24 [4×4 and a 6, plus a 1 and a wide].

But I wonder if, even in the fun that T20 is, only 2 batsmen [sluggers?] making it to double figures is more than mildly unusual?, even in much lower totals?

Comment by Jeremy

Add the extras, and the other nine managed just 20 runs or about 11% of the total. Very odd.

Meanwhile tonight, if Kent & Sussex win, Hampshire will be at least three wins behind the top four & possible qualification, with only six games left (and probably more than three wins).
