    Warwick's from 52/5 earn a draw. Extremely frustrating.

    Northeast off to play for the Lions this weekend. With a bit of luck we'll have Vince and Dawson back otherwise both Soames and Organ will be batting!

    Who’s our Overseas players. I know we’ve got South Africa’s Chris Morris.

    Rahane. I think Morris is T20 only.

    I’m meaning T20. We’ve definitely got Vince and Dawson back. Yeah Morris is only T20 just trying to work out the second T20 only overseas player.

    Looks like a bit of a struggle to avoid defeat again today.
    Might even be a T20 type slog for Kent, looking for about 155/160 off 16 or 17 overs.

    There isn't one unless Rahane stays but my understanding is that he finished today. Did not field for Kent second innings but sat by the boundary.

    Looks like Rahane and Fidel are finished with us now. We have the South African Morris. Doesn’t make sense . Some teams have three overseas players for The T20.

    Fidel not even finishing the 4 day season later on then ?
    I'd hoped we'd might get Markram back for the T20 but I guess he has other things to do.

    Was Rahane injured or just an end of term thing? Funny really you would have thought Rahane mid season would outscore and play Markram in early season conditions but never worked out like that. Should have Vince and Dawson for T20s as Vince didn’t take his WC opportunities and some way off for the tests bar a glut of injuries.

    Rahane was only ever here for the 6 championship games. He's off to W.Indies next month, skippering India in the tests as Kohli is being rested.

    Fidel has gone to the Bears on a one month lone. He will be back for the Championship match in August.

    Anyone want to try to explain to me in simple terms why exactly we persist with Chris Wood ? Just got smashed for 16 off 5 balls in the last over to lose the match for us.

    I was going to say the same

    Mind you we were 10 t0 15 runs under par.

    I felt he would cock it up

    I thought Abbott should have had the last over

    Yes we were short, probably because Northeast, amongst other reasons like the openers getting out too soon, is a bit slow when you need runs quickly. I'd make him open and put Rossouw in further down.

    You have put my exact post....why do we keep playing dolly drop Wood??
    Every season is the same with him can we not get any better or is he cheap??

    It's just not understandable, he plays in the seconds most of the season and then gets one day games where he is constantly useless. Was Holland not available or something? Won't even mention farming out Fidel, guess there's some sort of reason for that.

    Yes he did but I just assume there are reasons for loaning him out there. Are we short of money again?

    Fidel has a contract for red ball. (They worked something out for the ODI's when we were short of bowlers ) so he wasn't pickable for the T20's without working out a new contract .Why they chose to give Wood a white ball contract rather than Fidel is another question.

    Well tbh it's probably pretty obvious that Fidel costs more than Wood. However we have other bowlers who'd probably only cost the same even if they don't have white ball contracts, I'm sure Holland would have done a better job.
    Season is becoming a bit of a shambles after a good start.

    Not Hampshire-related, although the Edwards loan is odd, but England being ripped apart at Lord's by a 37 year old county trundler.

    From 36:1 to 85ao, against 75mph bowling. Starc won't even need a run up.

    England could have done with Vince making his usual 25 run contribution.

    First of the last chances at Hove this evening? Not started at all well, they're 33 without loss after 3 overs. Morris went for 18 in his first over. Still perhaps it's a 200 pitch or something.

    Might have improved since that tennis player dumped him though and he no longer needs to be running around after her..

    Moeen has played himself out of contention after a poor WC as well, Burns has looked terrible outside off stump. Bairstow had a great WC but needs some practice as two poor dismissals. At risk a bit with Buttler and Stokes to return. Root out twice to poor shots.

    Shame Leach didnít get his hundred and at least Roy got some runs. Stone is another option to replace Wood if he too doesnít get injured.

    Hants didnít help the Aussies with the practice game pitch!

    Chelmsford this evening and that never augers well. Put them in, got a wicket with the first ball but since then it looks like business as usual with the knobs from where they don't speak english properly, going along at 9 an over. Wheater to the fore as per usual.

    Fortunately for Hants. Runs looked really hard to come by, tired old wicket perhaps.

    Crane(side strain) replaced by Taylor. Probably any chance of winning gone.

    I don't know. Runs look hard to come by again for both sides. Could be a nail biter (well for those who do that anyway).

    With an umbrella and wellies by the look of the forecast.

    By car J7 off the M27. Follow the signs but leave yourself plenty of time. The last 1/2 mile will take ages.

    I would go by train and walk the 15 mins or so from Hedge End station.

    Well I don't think the batting is any too great either, what can you expect with Dawson batting at 4 really. Morris looks a bit sub-standard when compared to some of the other overseas players. Still, real cricket again on Sunday, hopefully we'll put on a good display, try to finish 3rd maybe.

    Only 1 wicket for Hants so far today, so only 1 bowling point. Surrey only 9 ahead though so it'll probably be a draw. We can only hope that Essex don't collapse in the way Kent did earlier on and that our 4th place will be preserved.

    I wouldn't completely rule out a Hampshire collapse after the demoralising bowling effort.
