The ball was very full and it did spin back to Bailey so I think its a fair call by the umps

Good old-school umpiring that. Gave it for the shot.

@PT1079 I'll take Ravi back tbh. Our seam bowling of Leach, Tongue, Barnard is fairly solid. Maybe another out and out quick would help

If Hants go down here, there is no more fitting way to do so than by losing to the worst team in the league

Who the hell plays a reverse sweep second ball with relegation on the line?
by Duluth K. Archaeopteryx9/28/2017 12:25:54 PM
It'll be interesting to see how that Worcs team goes in Div 1. Some good young talent, should mean they keep hold of Clarke, Cox etc. Might need a seam bowling overseas, but they've got a fighting chance of staying up

Bailey unlucky, I thought that was going to miss the off stump but that short was daft

Vince is like a better Joe Root
by nickcricket9/28/2017 12:22:37 PM
There's only one potential England opener involved in that wicket, with apologies to Ravi

the Chosen Child has just played a backfoot drive that peak-era Virender Sehwag might describe as a bit ambitious

Bailey is the one, even more so than Vince
by Duluth K. Archaeopteryx9/28/2017 12:19:46 PM
He's not the messiah. He's James flippin' Vince.
by PT10799/28/2017 12:19:38 PM
Be interesting to see how the new bat sizes work, the sending off thing is a response to a issue a lower levels, I like the Bouncing bat for run outs as well, the catching off kits makes life easier and DRS is a good change as well
by nickcricket9/28/2017 12:19:14 PM
I'm smelling hubris related to Hampshire managing to stay up last year. It smells good.
by Kieran Layer9/28/2017 12:18:56 PM
Vince has already fished at one loosely

I'm sure Jeetan will serve up plenty of half volleys for him.
by StaggerBreaths9/28/2017 12:18:14 PM
All down to Vince now. Wonder how his "back foot game" is suited to this situation.

@DuluthK.Archaeopteryx Thank you
by nickcricket9/28/2017 12:13:14 PM
I was listening to a piece on TMS on the new rules in a rain break during the West Indies test, they mentioned that the run out change is written in a way that the batsmen has to have forward momentum towards/beyond the stumps for it be given not out if the bat bounces up, hopefully that implies to stumpings as well and we don't see missed stumpings because the batsmen keeps a foot hovering over the crease whilst losing balance

I'm not sure its the right think, we will lose some clever bits of wicket keeping. Also catches and stumping/run outs can be taken off protective gear now including helmets.
by nickcricket9/28/2017 12:10:43 PM
hmmm not sure if I agree with that stumping rule
by Matt Richardson9/28/2017 12:07:56 PM
I'm happy with the new bouncing bat rule, ALTHOUGH not for stumpings
by Duluth K. Archaeopteryx9/28/2017 12:06:53 PM
Think they have done the same thing with stumpings, so if a players foot comes off the ground but its still in the crease its not out. Makes life easier for the third umpire I guess
by nickcricket9/28/2017 12:06:31 PM
@nickcricket Don't like that!
by Beth Watson9/28/2017 12:05:26 PM
by Chris Cayenne9/28/2017 12:05:07 PM
They have also changed the rules on Bouncing bats, so if a bat goes over the crease line grounded and comes off again its still counted as in
