    Adrian Birrell? I'm Sure he was Ireland ODI coach when they got to the super 8, 2007 i think.

    Edwards signed up on red ball contract - no brainer.

    Is batting good enough? Assume will target a batting overseas?

    So, with a bit over a month to bowl-off have we got any openers sorted out?

    No, and no overseas either. It's positively Saints-like

    Expecting an announcement at 4pm regarding a signing. No idea if it is a contract extension or a new signing

    Was acting skipper for SLís win in SA. Donít know what he is like against the moving ball but coped with a high quality attack overseas. Good signing on paper

    Looks good. Scores 50 or more one innings in 3 from the stats.
    I see it's only for the first part of the season though.

    Hey, there's cricket on Thursday and Friday of this week. More early next week as well. Hope it doesn't get weathered off like last year.

    "Sri Lanka opener Dimuth Karunaratne may not join Hampshire as their overseas player, while selectors consider him as a potential World Cup captain.
    ....
    Karunaratne has been asked to stay in Sri Lanka during April and play in their domestic 50-over competition before the World Cup begins in May."

    So once again an iffy situation with our projected overseas player. I know that last season Amla eventually turned up but he didn't seem to be all that interested and swanned off early. Karunaratne played in a representaive game today I think. Made 20 not out.

    I looked up some old season start dates yesterday and it seems to me that the County Cricket season is starting earlier and earlier. Used to be mid-end of April'ish I think.

    Thoughts on the best Championship lineup?

    Will Vince open as the ECB want? Possibly more likely now due to the Sri Lankan not being available.

    In theory, a very strong lineup aside from one opening spot.

    But as we saw on a fair few occasions last season, if you haven't got solid openers everything else is fragilised.

    Until a replacement overseas is sorted, I'd say we'll go:

    Donald, Alsop, Vince, Northeast, Roussow, Dawson, McManus, Berg, Barker, Abbott, Edwards

    Still a batsman short in my mind

    Vince opened today in the warm up game.

    I think he will open at the start of the season to try and get into England reckoning as an opener.

    Well they seem to have tried everybody else apart from Anderson and Broad.

    Hants have now signed SA opener Aiden Markram in place of Karunaratne, for the first couple of months of the season.

    Hopefully gets us off to a good start. Last season early Hants almost seemed to be 0/2 almost. In other news, did I read that Karunaratne has been arrested for drink-driving?

    Saved from what "au juste"? Good looking start to me. 303/4, Northeast just 6 away from a century, good knocks from Vince, Rossouw and Markram.

    Ton up for Northeast. Good start, should get at least 4 batting points, perhaps 5.

    Well yes but I'm kind of used to Hants collapsing in the mid-order. Still it's a great looking start to the season.

    So then 525/8 declared and Fidel gets one of their openers in his second over. Unfortunately not that old stick in the mud Cooke.

    Looks like we're going to lose more time to bad light, pity, we are in a strong position but we need to be bowling at them for all the overs possible..

    Westley out to Kyle, 55/2, but Cook 35 no. Lawrence and Bopara now key as well as Cook, who will look to drop anchor, with Wheaterís injury. Ten-D fast scorer in Roussow mode, Harmer a useful bat but a couple more wickets would leave Essex very exposed.

    Nice start.
    We are currently second in table and Essex are first so win and we should go top

    Hants dispatching their bogey side by an innings. With Cook as well. All bar Weatherley got runs, and brilliant knocks by Northeast and Rosseuw. Hope injury to Allsopp not serious. Bowlers superb - Edwards and Abbott in particular, some tidy overs from Dawson to add to his half century.

    Couldn’t have gone better for Birrell. Yorks visiting next, Root off a big unbeaten ton but their bowling looked all over the show at Notts. Let’s enjoy being top of the table for now!

    Ah but Wheater was out injured for all but a couple of overs. No bogey man, no horrendous loss.

    Sounds like a pretty flat deck this time. New ball due fairly soon, so hopefully we can get something with that, otherwise Root and Ballance could bat for ****ing ages.

    Looks like it could be a good one not to lose. Big scores all round hopefully.

    Well we've got Ballance at last, caught behind off Berg. Tykes 371/4. Doesn't look like Fidel has bowled today, not an injury I hope.

    Do we get a point for 3 wickets after 110 overs?

    1 I think, unless they've changed it this season.

    Well I hope the wicket is as flat and lifeless as our bowlers (still no Fidel) are making it look. Yorks 519/6. Not scoring very quickly but we'll need some really solid batting for 2 days to get a draw.

    Ah bolloaks. Hants 15/2 both openers gone, probably to dibby, dobby seamers.
    Then again, Vince really isn't an opener and Weatherly isn't...well anywhere near good enough to be opening in Div 1.

    So what happened there then? Did the wicket or conditions atmopheric change radically or was our top order batting just duff?.

    Markram looks to be a decent emergency signing then. Solid with the bat, useful with the ball.

    Seems an excellent signing to be replaced by Rahane probably

    Not sure about the signings of Fuller and Donald having seem them Canterbury and online at Hedge End

    Fuller got some useful runs today after we lost a couple of quick wickets. Didn't bowl because the spinners ground them down.
    Donald probably just needs some time, hasn't played much these last 12 months or so.

    Yes you are probably right at least with cricketers they can find form in the 2nd eleven unlike PL footballers who lose form and have no games to play

    Batting at the Aegeas looks a bit tough this morning, 3 down already and scoring mainly in singles. Probably why they put us in after winning the toss.
