Hampshire Cricket History

Yes …

It was enough. Another absorbing day of the best kind of cricket, in perfect weather. Entirely by chance I spent it alongside a group of young Indian fans who were a real delight – and until the dismissal of Kohli, none of us could call the result – then fairly quickly it turned towards England. Not one innings in the match reached 275, but this was cracking cricket and from where I was, and from what I heard, very well staged by Hampshire.

Here’s the final celebratory huddle:

England win

And the celebration in the Warne Stand and beyond:

Crowd applauding

Dave – it was a pleasure to meet you and thank you for all those anecdotes and stats from the history of county cricket and cricket in general. Next time India tours England i hope they will be able to turn around their dismal record in Southampton. Think Kohli may still be there to haunt the english team

I’ve written this letter to the Guardian. As I don’t sport a beard, they might not publish it:

You carry an “Analysis” of the Test Match by “Andy Bull Ageas Bowl”; the following headline offers, “Thriller at the Rose Bowl …” and the first sentence of his report begins “Large as the Ageas Bowl is …”. Make your mind up. Like it or not, that ground hasn’t been the Rose Bowl for half-a-dozen years now, and when the ICC descends next year it will be temporarily the Hampshire Bowl.
