Hampshire v Somerset , County Championship, May 6 - 9, 2021

Selection, the weather, the contest between the Somerset top order and Abbott / Abbas, let me have your thoughts before during and after the game.



  • September 2019, hoping to travel to Southampton when I fell victim to a rather nasty virus - all the precise COVID symptoms but of course COVID hadn’t been recognised then, so landed up watching the live stream for the whole match on my sick bed.

    Two passages of play stick in my mind - in both of the Hampshire innings we had them in trouble 6/57 and 6/45 but on both occasions failed to press home the advantage eventually losing the match by 136 runs, so hoping we will overcome this tendency (as in both second innings v Middlesex) and this will not be the case this year.

    whatever happens #WeareSomerset and we all have a Happy Somerset day next week (May 11th)

  • Just seen the squad sheet and I know this is not the final XI but is the thinking not to play Jack Leach or RdvM?

  • Delighted if (a) we score another 75+ before lunch and (b) Tom gets to a century today

  • Another day 4 of drama and tension or a procession to victory?

    Hoping for the latter but .......

  • Should have put the ‘but’ in capitals nevertheless a great away win

  • Another good win for the lads a good team effort and Overton leading the way
