@SP Vic 's in the Radio5 commentary box - just happened to mention his MoM in the 83 final!

More of a Mexican Ripple perhaps!

That's like a Raspberry Ripple, but with added chili.

2 quick wickets, just need to knock it around fora few overs. No need to panic

Sorry, went for a cider. Banton got his fifty, so I'll start one if Agod joins in

Me too. Thought these two were going to see it through. Maybe the Captain can hit the winning runs

Nursery end bars run out of cider. I blame the ECB.

I should rather like to see Peter Trego get most of our target, as this may well be his last Lord’s Final.
Isn't it everyone's?
(Unless some of our lads are in the England team next time we host the World Cup?)

I'd congratulate the Somerset supporters.

"They'll be dancing in the streets of Taunton and Tiverton..."
Clearly the commentator is aware of the Devon contingent in the Somerset team and our neighbours' cause for celebration on their account.
Or, less probably, he is ignorant of West Country geography.

No, Hants fan, given that Vince isn’t Barry Richards or Gordon Greenidge or Robin Smith, he wouldn’t have reversed the outcome of such a one-sided game.

And, although you didn’t have an official overseas, your did have no fewer than THREE Kolpaks in your team so can’t complain too much about that.

I don't feel Somerset beat Hants today. The ECB did. A major final and the grotesque scheduling of this final has robbed Hants of key players. Look at the contributions of Dawson and Vince in the group stage. Hants were the outstanding side hitherto in the competition and judges like Nasser Hussain (see this month's The Cricketer thought so). Somerset should give their prizemoney to the ECB- they have made it easy for them. I am proud of the Hants effort, performing with one hand tied behind our back today. We rarely lose a final and our record of trophy winning is fantastic in recent years; today is very disappointing, but entirely predictable, given the ECB's scheduling. What has Vince been doing today? Making decent runs against Australia at Southampton. Somerset's old hands and imports- with a helping hand from overseas- have got them home for a rare final win. Congratulations ECB.

England lost too even with Vince & Dawson!

Hants01 I didn't get past the first line of your post, that's pretty pathetic from you. For shame

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
AGod 25 May, 2019 18:33
Utter garbage, Hants fan. Ridiculous to criticise our imports when you have no fewer than three Kolpaks.

James Vince is a marginal, at best, international player. Marginal international players are incapable of reversing overwhelming defeats.

WSM - great day for you! Excellent from Jamie and Josh (who was, shamefully, not mentioned in the Sky MoM summing Up).

For Guildford, I say Lewis to rest even if technically fit. Play two Overtons (cancel Jamie’s loan), plus TG and Tom as 4th seamer (should value himself more). Replace Gregory with Tom Banton and bar him middle order with license to attack. Drop Trescothick for Byrom. Bat Tom A at 3, get Hildreth back to 4;

Take a leaf from Sam Northeast Hants01. He didn’t blame the loss of your England players and was very dignified in defeat!

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final

Well said HantsSabre. Can't stand a bad loser.
Many congrats to Tom et Al. A very well deserved victory from a special team.
