If you’re going, may the sun shine on you and I hope you have fun.

For each of the T20 games I have written up a brief history against those opponents, so currently, matches v Middlesex at home. You can find it on the club’s website:


PS The later post about membership/tickets/entry was only for my information so many thanks to you all but I’ve removed it so that we can focus on tonight’s game. Add any comments you wish.

I note in the tourist game that the last three New Zealanders added 143 without a wicket falling to a bowler (one ‘retired out’), after which Sibley batted more like Milburn than Boycott before falling for 27 from 33 balls. Gubbins’ turn next but it’s lunch now.

PS Gubbins went for three, at that point, lowest score in the match.

Roses match on Sky Sports. Old Trafford looking typically gloomy and they’ve got more building work going on.

Six of Hampshire’s XI have been among the 13 who have played in the Championship this year, although only Vince, & Dawson in every game. Three debutants.

Well blimey, I must ask the historian whether anyone has ever taken a T20 wicket with his first ball of the season – and two in the first over.

Comment by Dave Allen

Sorry, it seems he doesn’t know … Although (14-3) he can tell you that the lowest Middx T20 score v Hants is 121-9 at Uxbridge in 2011 and 121 all out at the A Bowl in 2020

I’ve been expressing my surprise this year that the Bob Willis Trophy records from 2020 are not being counted in the County Championship career records. I don’t agree with it. Then tonight Kevan said Chris Wood has 152 T20 wickets and I’m thinking ‘no he hasn’t, he’s got 150’. So I check on Cricket Archive and as I thought, he has 150 for Hampshire in the T20 and two more, which are for London Spirit Men which is not a T20 competition is it? Bloody bizarre.

Any conventional potted score would read Middlesex 163-6 (Wheal 3-46) but in T20 that wasn’t so good, especially the last over (18) whereas Chris Wood’s 1-20 in four is good bowling. I thought Ellis looked OK but Crane was again disappointing.

58-4 in the ninth – Hampshire haven’t won their opening game of a T20 season since 2017 in Cardiff. At the Ageas Bowl you have to go back to 2015.

Harry Came with 23 from 13 for Derbyshire was the top-scoring Hampshire-born batsman in tonight’s T20s but Briggs and Lintott got two wickets each and Derbys finished just four runs short

Comment by Dave Allen

I loved that their man Green wore green shoes!

Comment by Paul

After an impressive start it was disappointing to come away with a loss. Not sure why Liam didn’t bowl his full four & Whitely just went for one shot too many in an over that he’d already scored plenty.

Yes indeed, 32 from the last two overs, then Whiteley, Fuller and Vince all holed out when we looked to be winning. I’m (again) most sad for Mason though.

Comment by Dave Allen

It was just the first match…….let’s hope he gets a chance to improve in the next one.

Ref Mason – my concern was not specifically about that performance but about all his games this season The advantage of watching the live stream from Canterbury and then again v Middx is that you get a very good view. It wasn’t encouraging. He had a poor time at Sussex and did very little even for the 2nd XI. I think everyone knows I’ve been a strong advocate of Mason but … I hope he’s back to his best from tomorrow
