On the field, who knows? But I’ve been posting some year-by-year histories of the Rose/Ageas Bowl, 20 not out this week as far as the first team goes.

The guys who run our website are going to run it as a series over the season, so to avoid duplication I’ll switch on here to a simpler project, recording ‘firsts’, and point you to the main site


I hope that’s OK. With our season underway there is plenty to post on here anyway.

2001 is now up on the main site so, looking just at ‘Firsts’ (not necessarily every year):

On Friday 13 June 2003, Hampshire beat Sussex at the Rose Bowl in the first T20 match in the new competition – shown on Sky TV. One month later, on 10 July South Africa beat Zimbabwe in the first (one-day) international on the ground, Sean Ervine played for Zimbabwe

The Daily Telegraph has today published a list of the ten batsmen who have scored over 400 runs in the Championship so far in the ‘race’ to 1,000 runs by the end of May. Despite all the hundreds, not one of them is from Hampshire. Bedingham of Durham is top with 567, while Ian Holland with 375 heads Hampshire’s list.
