    It will be all over by kick off time anyway. I'd like to have seen Vince's innings today..

    You wouldn't have thought so if you were trying to park there. I can only assume that the "sparse crowd" all walked home this morning and came back with a second car.

    Vince was feckin God like and off to Lords we go.

    Hampshire have signed Middlesex off-spinner Ollie Rayner on loan for their next two County Championship matches.

    Rayner provides cover for Brad Taylor, who has an ankle injury, and England spinner Mason Crane, who is again suffering with back pain.

    Big game against a depleted Yorkshire starting today. If Steyn, Abbott and Berg can't make the pink ball talk under lights we may as well all go home

    Classic Hampshire so far had them 21-3 now 194-4. With our batting as it is they could probably declare now and win by an innings

    They are using a Kookaburra this year and it isnt anything like the banana balls they had last season. Great to see Steyn flatten 2 of Pujara's stumps for his 2nd duck in 3 days, but Ballance must average over 100 against us and so its no surprise that he is 103* at tea. 228-4.

    Abbott's opening spell today was quite dreadful. He is a shadow of his usual self.

    Innings well resurrected by Adams and Alsop. Hopefully they can push us on towards York's total and get perhaps 4 batting points.
    With Lancs looking in big trouble we may even get out of the bottom 2.

    And there you go. Weatherley out for a duck already. Promising one day batsman, don't know if he has what it takes to be a 4 day opener. Vince might as well open, he's usually in within the first 4 or 5 overs anyway.

    Not a bad day yesterday, watched most of it. Vince out to a really good ball, Rossouw batted well enough. Pity Northeast and Alsop got bogged down by the accurate bowling and occasional movement though. Hants still have it all to do from 302/6 after 96. Might even limit them to 2 bowling points whilst getting 4 batting ourselves. Plus 2 might help in a tight finish to the season.

    Honestly, some of Hampshire's batting gives you the jitters.

    Dawson and Topley on form for England Lions with the ball today. Topley 3 for 12 and Dawson 4 for 21.
    Augers well for the Royal London final on Saturday perhaps.

    Can they play?

    Two questions. Grateful for any answers.
    1. Why is Steyn being "rested"?
    2. Why do England Lions (i.e. B team) play at the same time as Division 1 matches?

    1) Cricket South Africa probably said so.
    2) Money I expect.

    1) Understandable as he hadn't played for over 6 months and bowled a lot against Yorkshire. Keeps him fresh for Lords. I'll give you a wave from the back row of the Upper Compton stand.
    2) We send Lions sides abroad in the winter and so have to reciprocate.

    Excellent batting performance set the platform for a convincing win.

    Clinically professional performance from the Hampshire team, and a memorable day out in the sunshine for us supporters! Brilliant.

    Excellent team performance today, Rilee's innings was top notch, wasn't timing the ball perfectly to begin with but supported Alsop well, who looked quality, and then took over after Tom perished. Fielding was great, 4 run outs and Berg was so brave, getting rid of Kuhn whose record in this competition was stunning. Wood and Dawson bowled well and Steyn a great influence.

    Allan Donald is doing a good job as Kent's bowling coach but don't envy his raw materials. Podmore decent and Stevens canny as always. Denly actually the most dangerous bowler. Haggett though - please tell me he is a very good bat because that's the worst bowling I've ever seen in a final since that Leicestershire guy bowled a million wides in a limited overs final in the 1990s (sorry, can't recall the name!). Could have been nervous but take a leaf out of Stevens book if you have zero pace. Bowled all over the wicket in 3 overs, how he stopped us winning the group game is mind boggling.

    Not the best of starts to our T20 campaign. Over confidence perhaps.

    So 211 to get then, perhaps Beckenham has short boundaries.
    Great, 6 for 2 at the end of the first over. Ah no, make that 7/3 now. Are we not taking the Blast seriously this season?

    Last year we got to the quarter-finals with 7 wins and 6 losses. We still have a small chance.

    Not a bad effort in the end, came up just 4 short. Obviously a ground where scoring a lot of runs was easy enough. If we hadn't lost 3 wickets in 7 balls at the start we'd probably have made it with a couple of overs to spare. These out grounds must be soul destroying for the bowlers just now, just a turkey shoot where you're lucky to concede less than 10 an over.

    A T20 win at last. Hants total looked a few short really, despite a goodish start but the bowlers got the job done.

    Colin Munro had a stellar game. Top scored. Bowled tidily. Got Eoin Morgan out and was outstanding in the field.

    Off to a bright start today, well apart from Vince getting out for 1 that is, since then lost 3 other wickets and are now being pinned down. Vs Essex innit. Wheater will no doubt make a big score and Bopara will finish us off.

    Low scoring Roses match so far. 20 wickets down already for the day. Neither side got any batting points which is a handy situation for us.

    Only 19 wickets actually as Livingstone couldn't bat (broken thumb).

    Doesn't seem to be much cricket at the moment. This is one of the reasons why I so despise the T20. A 3 hour slog every 3 or 4 days and that's it.

    Looked like Alsop and Dawson were incapable of maintaining a fairly easy run rate. Has happened to Alsop before I think. And why exactly Vince is opening beats me. Let Rossouw do it or even Alsop..

    As if our season couldn’t get any lower. Both the White’s have got to go.

    Apart from winning the Royal London Cup after posting the highest total in a Lord’s final it's been a terrible season.

    that post can be taken two ways, are you defending the coaching or was it really a true swipe at how pathetic the performances seem to be
