Hampshire Cricket History

Hampshire won their first trophy for 13 years, beating Warwickshire in the C&G Final at Lord’s. The semi-final was at the Rose Bowl v Yorkshire where Sean Ervine in his first season at Hampshire scored the century that took Hampshire to victory by 8 wickets (Pothas 73*). Ervine scored another century in the final.

In mid-September Hampshire still had hopes of the title until at Canterbury, Nottinghamshire declared setting Kent 420 in 70 overs and bowled them out. The new Champions came to the Rose Bowl for the last match and with Warne still angry about that game, Hampshire posted their record score of 714-5 although he declared on Crawley when, with 311*, he was just five runs short of Moore’s record score for Hampshire. Mascarenhas and Udal bowled Hampshire to victory by an innings and 188 runs.

In the T20, Hampshire beat Kent by five wickets when Udal took a single from the last ball. (Pothas 58*, Lamb 4-28)

On 13 June, England beat Australia by 100 runs in the first T20 International played in this country and only the second in the world. Kevin Pietersen, then with Hampshire, played for England, scoring 34.

The 2nd XI are at the Ageas Bowl today – they’re in the field v Middlesex. There’s no Currie (off to the Oval?) and no Scriven, who isn’t playing much right now. Barker and Fuller are both there, Metzger is back keeping. Also, Organ, Middleton, Mumford, Prest, Turner, Dale, Stevenson and Broderick. Middlesex have two spinners (Sowter & Walallawita) – plus Eskinazi who was captaining their first team here last week.

Midday (ish) Middx 41-1 and Barker has his first wicket for nearly a year!

See HRC Came is playing for Leicestershire today in a 2nd XI match.

John, permit me a correction: he is playing for Derbyshire and in the runs as I write this. (smiley face)

Comment by Martin

Indeed he is….misread which team was batting.🙂

Comment by John Cottrell

Lewis McManus has received 3 ECB disciplinary points.

Comment by Sean

Thanks Sean. Let’s hope that’s the end of it.

“These are the first such points he has received in the past two years. Points remain on players’ records for two years and the accumulation of nine or more points in that period brings an automatic suspension”

I don’t know about Warne being angry with Kent trying to chase 420 in 70 overs a week later I’m still angry today. (As I may have mentioned a couple of dozen time in the past!).

The first session of the second day of our match with Notts is the most amazing I have ever seen. In those 135 minutes we scored 267 runs with Crawley scoring 148 and Mascarenhas 96 after coming in about fifteen minutes after start of play. The ball went everywhere – and often!

I thought of you this morning when I posted it!!

Comment by Dave Allen

Is my memory playing tricks but weren’t Kent in with a faint chance of the title themselves, so had to go for this stiff target?

Comment by Ian White

Yes they had a chance I believe Ian.

But no chance of scoring 420 in five hours / 70 overs!

Comment by James

Kent finished fifth, 31 points behind Hampshire, who were 2.5 points behind Notts. Kent lost their last two matches (v Notts & Sussex) and drew the previous three, so they must have been close during that Notts game.

Comment by Dave Allen

(2.45): Middlesex 2nd XI are 148-7 – two wickets for Fuller & Barker, one each for Stevenson & Turner – and a run out.

Comment by Dave Allen

Now 166-8, Fuller 3-46

Comment by Dave Allen

In a 45 over game at Lord’s Hants posted 353-8, KP made 80 wonderful runs that had something of the timing of Richards and the power of Greenidge. Just have to see past the distractions with him….
