Hampshire Cricket History


It’s a Record

or is it?

The sport section of today’s Daily Telegraph is obsessed with a sport we’ve all cared about for years – Taekwondo – and the extremely lax dress code in the Lord’s pavilion yesterday. There are two large colour photos of quite disgraceful scenes at the ‘home of cricket’.

They also report a record crowd of 13,537 for a domestic women’s game in England. The fact that there was a men’s game scheduled immediately after seems not to count.

I once played the Glastonbury Festival on the same weekend as Bob Dylan (1998?), and the Isle of Wight Festival on the same day as the Rolling Stones (2007). I guess they are the biggest crowds that ever turned out to listen to me.

(Or maybe not)

I was incidentally dressed on both occasions appropriate to an attendance at Lord’s yesterday

Are you going to the game tomorrow Dave? Will be the first time for me at the Ageas since 2019!

Enjoy it Tom! I’m on duty (commentating) but (as is my way) I will be hanging about inside by the turnstiles around 10.15 so if you’re passing, say hello.

Have fun – fingers crossed for the weather!
