Hampshire Cricket History

How Much?

There should be 96 overs bowled each day in the Championship, so 192 in two days, 288 in three days, or 384 in four days – minus a couple of overs here and there for change of innings. So it’s interesting to see how many overs were seen on average on each of the main grounds:

The Oval 299 per match; Headingley* 283 per match; Trent Bridge 278 per match; Chelmsford & Old Trafford 272 per match; Taunton & Worcester 269 per match; Hampshire 241 per match.

*The Headingley figure (five games) includes the Essex match which was abandoned with no play. Over the four matches that had play, the figure is just 226.

It means that in 2018, only the Oval averaged more than three days of cricket per match – and only by 11 overs (perhaps an hour of play, including those changes of innings).
