    Hants manage to hold on for a draw in the end which mathematically seals safety for another year (thanks Notts)

    Defeat in the t20 tomorrow will mean the last month of our season is entirely pointless

    No if you enjoy watching cricket it isn't. Absolutely ridiculous comment, from clearly a 20/20 newbie.

    I love watching cricket. I was at the very first t20 game in 2003 and will be at Lords tomorrow.

    Allow me to rephrase my point: defeat tomorrow will mean the last month of our season will have no bearing on our CC division next year nor our continuing participation in the latter stages of the t20 Blast. The first time that has happened in a very long time

    Still 3 CC matches left of the season, winning say 2 of those will be an achievement.
    For next season team seems to need a bit of an overhaul, starting with sorting out the Crane situation. Lad seems to have been missing most of the time for the last 2 seasons, Topley like?
    I see that England have announced 20 international home games for next season as well so decent overseas players are going to be hard to come by, getting Markram back again would suit me.

    Hey looks like we have a new player for today's game. Tabraiz Shamsi, something like that. What do we know about him then?

    Middx 121-4 to 128 all out, Hants easy win.

    Not Hants related but what a debacle for England at Headingly today. 67 all out I think. Shouldn't have started the rough stuff yesterday, never bodes well against Aussie sides.

    Perhaps playing batsmen in their accustomed batting place, and permitting them to play first class matches outside tests, might help. As far as I can work out, Root has played 3 first class county innings this year, most of them have played none.

    Well yes, there is far too much international cricket. Used to be one tourist team, played most counties and 5 tests in a summer. Now you have to wedge in T20, 50 over games and several international series going on at the same time. As I said yesterday, for next season there are 20 international games scheduled in England so counties won't have their star players available at all.

    Regarding the test series, I wonder if SpecSavers will be rethinking their sponsorship given the appalling quality of the umpiring.

    Hmm. 3 spinners in the side this evening. Hope there's something in the wicket for them, otherwise it could be carnage.
    Seamers getting hammered anyway, not looking great.

    Hope our batting turns up, because the bowling certainly hasn't.

    Wood 4 overs for 67 runs

    Fuller 1 over for 20

    Good one to win

    I suppose, as Saints fans, we are at least used to our team playing a side without a win in 13 matches and losing.

    Blast team not good enough

    A batter and bowler short

  21. #271

    We're more than a batsman short. Middlesex just snuck in the top 4 and they've got Malan, Devilliers, Hafeez and Morgan in their top 5. I would say we're three batsmen short at least.

    Ah, back to the old joke batting again today then. 51/5 so far, then again we were 26/4 before Vince hit a 6 and 2 fours and then got out.

    Any rumoured comings and goings for next season?

    149 all out, pretty lamentable for a side that chose to bat first. Guess it doesn't matter really though.
    I see that Berg has signed for Northants on loan for the rest of this season and on a more permanent deal for the next.
    Seemed to go downhill (or be out of favour) very fast. Was always a solid value. No Rossouw today, has he gone off to play somewhere else or just isn't available for this game?

    If Hants can get 300 or so runs probably so can Surrey . Should be a tight finish.

    Lead now well over 350, sensible crease occupancy this morning whilst keeping the scoreboard turning over. Probably need to bat for another 30 or so overs though.

    Scoreboard pressure of chasing over 400, even with Fidel in the same generous mood as the first innings, should be enough.

    Excellent win from a difficult position after our first innings. Surrey did bat pretty awfully yesterday though, or perhaps we just batted exceptionally well on Wednesday.

    Kyle Abbott has now taken 15 wickets against Somerset in this game. Wow

    Revenge for the 1 day cup final.
    Got into the car on the car park at Kenilworth Castle and they were 2 down, by the time we got to Leamington Spa they were 7 down. ( A journey of 6 miles ).

    It is a shame Dawson and Vince were called up to the World Cup Squad

    Mason Crane what next for him?

    We are trying to sign Nathan Lyon for next season.

    Fielders better hit the stumps direct. (Guffaw!)

    Given we’ve pinched Somerset’s groundsman, if he prepares pitches anything like he did down there, Lyon will clean up.

    Hope we have our eye on a top order bat or 2. Still think we’re lacking a quality opener and 3.

    Hampshire finish 3rd. Our best finish since 2008. Do you think we have a realistic chance of winning our 3rd championship next season?

    Somerset must be gutted. If we hadn't beaten them, they'd have won the first championship in their history.

    Lots of ifs and buts. If our game at Nottinghamshire hadn't been rained off for 3 and a bit days, we'd have still been in the title race in the last few games. Things may have turned out very differently. Also, if Alex Hales hadn't been an absolute dickhead, we'd have had James Vince available for most of the summer.
