Hampshire Cricket History

I never played …

A reverse sweep throughout my school/college/club career – I suspect a step too far had I tried. It’s a remarkable skill when it works but boy does it look horrid when it fails – especially if the team is struggling. Still at least the fall of the seventh wicket brings in our last specialist batsman (and we’ve saved the follow-on!).

PS: Liam Dawson now has six wickets (nine down) for the first time in his Hampshire career (seven now!). He has one better analysis (7-51) but for Mountaineers (in Zimbabwe). It’s also the first time he has taken 10 wickets in any match.

The Young Man did well, didn’t he?

There’s a bit of rain about. Maybe it could go to the Oval for a day or three?

In the three innings so far (to tea on Day Two) the top order wickets have fallen one every 3.8 overs, while the lower order wickets have fallen exactly one every 8 overs. ‘New ball pitch’?

I thought this may interest you Dave. There’s a couple more interesting tweets in the replies.

Very familiar with that Tom – a fascinating game – although CB Fry was not yet (quite) a Hampshire player. He played his final match for Sussex 10 days before this and his first for Hampshire at the start of the next season.
