Hampshire Cricket History


Not the first XI

On with the numbered list of Hampshire’s LIST A players and (from 1963) I’ve just completed 1993 and number 78

I was struck by the players who made their debuts in the early 1990s – a pretty successful period for us in List A matches – and realised that in four seasons from 1990-1993 there were exactly eleven, but I wonder how many you could name? It’s not easy – but I’ll give you clues and add the whole list in the first comment.

There were three bowlers born overseas – one from an unusual birthplace – and three men who signed from other counties. Two men came from Hampshire – one from our ‘origins’ – while three had three initials but never made it to captain Hampshire. Only two were ‘capped’ by Hampshire – in one case his second county cap and one bowler (not yet mentioned) added his name to our list of first-class hat-tricks then departed for other counties. Two of them played Test cricket during this period (and beyond) but none of the others did, although one became part of England’s ‘backroom’ and another went into cricket administration.

OK?
