All being well I shall be commentating with Robbie James on the live stream tomorrow and Friday. I have no team news yet from either website but I’ve been doing my homework in preparation for the new season and thought I might share some ‘stats’ with you over the next two weeks, before the first-class season starts.

So in alphabetical order, we start with:

Kyle ABBOTT (525) born Natal, South Africa, 18.6.1987.

The Hampshire Squad (14) is now on our website. I guess they can probably field more than 11. Abbott has arrived but not Abbas.

In some sort of batting order:

Weatherley; Organ; Alsop; Vince; Northeast; Dawson; McManus (w/k); Holland; Fuller; Currie; Abbott; Crane; Stevenson; Wheal.

No Keith Barker … or Brad Taylor.

I read this week that Barker is still recovering from his surgery over the winter, hoping to be fit for the friendly next week. Surprised not to see Taylor or Donald involved at all.

Will be good to see the boys and hear you again. Of team listed I guess one of the top 3, currie and Stevenson/wheal will be left out. And great to see Dawson back and Abbott ready to go

Dave, Has Donald not recovered from his injury?

Good question, I’ll enquire. I’m afraid that it’s a bit damp for the 10.30 start, more covers going on.

Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl continue to be raining champions!

11.30 super sopper on, rain stoped but will this be the first early lunch of 2021?

Comment by pompeypop

Very sorry but 15 minutes later it’s raining again.

Comment by pompeypop

No, it wasn’t – (early lunch)

Comment by pompeypop

12.30 and first sighting of two umpires.

Comment by pompeypop

I’m delighted to report that I have just spotted my first footballing cricketer of the season, Jack White of Northants. His team mates (white stripes) are out there with him. Play seems imminent.
