Hampshire Cricket History

I was getting ready to note that the last time Sunderland won a Wembley Cup Final 1-0 was in 1973 – and you know what happened in that cricket season. Now I’m not sure if it’s an omen. In 1939 Hampshire were rubbish; in 2008 we finished third in Div One.

Meanwhile at Oxford, we’ve learned that Vince & Northeast are very good first-class batsmen, Rilee still doesn’t get the first-class runs he should, Weatherley & Soames perhaps don’t look ready, and Dawson should probably bat higher. I think we knew all that this morning.

Dave you will be delighted to know that Sweet Caroline boomed out at Wembley – after the trophy presentation!

Yes indeed Paul – the point at which I switched off! (But delighted)

Very odd Oxford scorecard. Five men who we need to score runs made 31 between them, while three others did very well. Apart from Holden who failed twice, the Middlesex batsmen all scored runs in their two innings v Oxford.
