Hampshire Cricket History


Centuries (+) and Half Centuries

Assuming they both play, Liam Dawson reaches his 150th first-class game for Hampshire at the Oval and Tom Alsop his 50th (thanks Tigger)

I’m very pleased that Tom is doing well at number three – I hope at last he’s in for the long haul. It’s taken him into his seventh English season to reach that total – and of course he’s played ‘white ball stuff – but compare with Neville Rogers who came back from the War, made his debut in 1946 and played his 50th game before the end of the following season.

PS During the last match, we were chatting on commentary about 1,000 runs by the end of May – and I had previously wondered whether our skipper might get there this year. Don Starr (thanks) has sent this link to the full story – although the tale about Bradman and bowler Jack Newman misses that Hampshire also stayed on in the rain while he got there:
