World Cups:
In 1975 Roberts & Greenidge were in the West Indies winning side, while contracted to Hampshire

There have been very few World Cup cricketers to whom that has applied.

You can add Malcolm Marshall in 1983 & 1992 but NOT 1987, Robin Smith in 1992 (but missed the Final) & 1996, and Kevin Pietersen in 2007.

A few others came close but were really outside their contract with the county

OK so the answer to 2003 is that three Hampshire past or future cricketers played for New Zealand: Craig McMillan, Shane Bond & Andre Adams. I’d never have worked that one out!

In 2015, Maxwell, Bailey, Watson, and Clarke all played for Australia – but never all four together. For South Africa however, Rossouw, Amla, Steyn, Abbott & Imran Tahir played in a number of matches together.

Not so confused of Pompey. Unlike the footy team.
