so whats happened to the hants team?

we had a good side last year, has all the money gone on the ground this year?
Dimi is definitely injured as is Kabir Ali. Lumb I'm not sure about but has been out of touch anyway. Simon Jones, as has been mentioned a few times, will hopefully play next season.
I think it's fair to say money spent on overseas players has not really paid dividends, Herath, Razzaq and Christian.
Interestingly both Jimmy Adams and Sean Ervine are amongst the 5 most valuable players in the 20/20 according to the official stats which might be a good lesson to learn.
I think Hants can still qualify for the 20/20 quarter finals though they definitely need to best Sussex today and have made 195/5 in 20 overs, Ervine 32 off 12 balls, Adams 30 off 24 balls and McKenzie, who definitely is proving now to be a good signing, 64 off 49 balls.
Qualify for t20 QF's - excellent
