Hampshire Cricket History

Over Here from Over There?

There is an article in the Pompey News today, written from an interview with Giles White about Hampshire’s squad for 2021. He says they are expecting Kyle Abbott as their first overseas man and are still keen to sign Nathan Lyon but it depends on his “availability”. If that doesn’t work out White says “there’s not many other spinners around who could fill his shoes so we would be looking for a seam bowler instead”. Rilee Rossouw meanwhile “will only be considered if Hampshire want a left-handed top-order batsman for the T20 Blast”.

On the injury front Hampshire finished 2020 with three problems, Aneurin Donald, Liam Dawson and Keith Barker; the latter had a knee ‘op’ but then needed a “winter clean-up op”. The article added “White is hopeful all three will be fit” when the Championship season starts at Leicester on 8 April.

So Brad Taylor was fit at the season’s end?

Sorry year end.

It’s a very good question James. As far as I can tell he’s now the Invisible Man …

It’s a shame as I thought he had real promise as a spin-bowling all-rounder.
