Hampshire Cricket History

Neither one thing

Nor the other?

It seems nobody has anything to say about Day One, but was it that kind of day – did we do well? Sometimes. Was inserting Yorkshire a good idea? Maybe. How was the weather? Dry but very grey and increasingly chilly.

Will there be more of the same today? Perhaps.

Correct thing to do inserting. Yorkshire applied themselves well and so far have a reasonable score on the board I think.

Good enjoyable competitive cricket yesterday.

I think somebody in the recruitment department will need to search for an opening pair. Definitely second division in that department.

Comment by Bill Seager

Holland has done quite well but I think Weatherley is not making it as a Championship opener – he’s in his sixth season.

Abbas is waiting to replace (who?) in the next match, but for next year maybe a top overseas opener is a better bet? (Assuming there is one available)

Comment by Dave Allen

I read yesterday that Holland was (before this round of games) the top run scorer in the top division.

Did Abbott bowl this morning? bit worried as Crane has come into bat before him.

Comment by Ian H

Yes he did bowl and he was soon into bat too but he did have a spell off the field yesterday.

Comment by Dave Allen

HOWEVER – he’s not opening the bowling and Currie is fielding sub.

Brad Wheal has just hit a four taking Hampshire to 162-9, one beyond Hampshire’s lowest v Yorkshire at the Ageas Bowl (2002). The highest 10th wicket partnership here v Yorkshire is 68 which these two might reach – they need to get to 191 to equal that. (Thanks Tigger)

Comment by Dave Allen

They didn’t of course. Notts going well and Yorkshire well ahead so we might be bottom by Friday …

Comment by Dave Allen

But still sixth out of eighteen! (Who says i don’t look on the bright side?)
