Freddie Wilde at the Ageas Bowl for Hampshire (219 & 173-4) v Somerset (474-8d)
The umpires appeared to take the players off for bad light and then just as the last player disappeared into the Pavilion it started to rain and its coming down fairly heavily now as the ground staff wearily haul the covers on. If the forecast is to be believed we may just have seen the last ball of this match.
Blog was doing record traffic in April and May so don;t think lack of publicity at start of season is a factor. Fixture list doesn't help. Nor does the wet summer. Nor do some of the technical issues we have had. And nor does our own limited resources in some of the rounds. Every county cricket outlet, though, is suffering similar decline at this stage of the season.
