Hampshire Cricket History


Yes or No?

I heard an informed rumour last week that Hampshire were hopeful of getting a Test Match v New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl this coming summer. Instead, today, BBC have announced:

“England will start their home summer with two Tests against world’s number one side New Zealand. The first Test at Lord’s will begin on 2 June, and the second at Edgbaston on 10 June. Three Twenty20s against Sri Lanka – two at Cardiff and one at Southampton – have also been added to England’s schedule.”

They then offer a list of those T20s but showing all three at Cardiff – who knows? From a personal point-of-view, I don’t give a damn since I won’t watch IT20s, but it’s disappointing news that there is no Test Match. I guess Hampshire didn’t do a very good job of staging them last season?!!

I think the BBC site is wrong as one of the T20s is at the Bowl (confirmed on the ECB site).

As to why we don’t have a Test match well it’s the ECB isn’t it?

Sadly I can’t make that day as I’m planning to watch some paint dry.

Interesting that Cardiff has two IT20s and an ODI this year, and the Ageas Bowl just one IT 20
