Anyone for a wicket maiden in the 34th?

Tom's speed 80 mph

Yep, good speeds from Tom.

And it seems that Hampshire's speed man is a bit quick at 85 according to Bumble while Jamie at over that used to have pace. How does that work David?

Do we know if Lewis will be fit to bat?

I'm in the Upper Edrich stand, if Agod is here too, would he like to start a Mexican wave with me?

I'm there too, but count me out!

Great piece of work from Tom B at the end there.

The Hants optimist would say their late flurry has given them a shot.

I say that all it does is show that’, even if we get into trouble at the top of our order, this track is comfortable for lower order players, should they need to make runs.

I should rather like to see Peter Trego get most of our target, as this may well be his last Lord’s Final.

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
AGod 25 May, 2019 14:34
Hayseed - we’ll start a wave if and when one of our guys makes a fifty - deal!?

If Hants01 wants to blame anyone for James Vince's absence then blame Alex Hales for (allegedly) smoking the wacky baccy, or the journalist who broke the real 'personal' reason for his absence from Nottinghamshire's team. Because it's only Hales' absence that puts James Vince in the World Cup 15.

Has Rob Bailey, known ever so slightly strangely but for obvious reasons as BBF (or Big Batters` Friend) on the circuit since he became an umpire in the early 2000s, given Hampshire the boost they needed?

Mason Crane was as plumb lbw to Roelof van der Merwe as you are ever likely to see when he had scored 7, as Sky replays vividly demonstrated. But despite the final being at Lord`s, there is no referral system - and he survived to put on a vital 50-plus with James Fuller.

The joys of being at a live cricket match: the pair sat next to me have spent three hours talking about investment strategy, mortgage rates and capital gains tax, while the chap behind me mused to his friend that the Hants opener used to open the bowling for South Africa. FFS...

I'm in the Edrich Upper and haven't partaken in a Mexican wave for thirty years. For this and other reasons, I may seek a shadier spot for the Somerset innings.

Any news on Gregory's injury?

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Hayseed 25 May, 2019 15:02
Deal. Thinking it's going to Banton!

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Shepton Paul 2 25 May, 2019 15:03
Don't think Crane counts as a big batter...?

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Flyboy 25 May, 2019 15:06
If you guys are in then I'm in. Think it'll be Trego myself, hopefully Banton though

Sky have had a request to see if Tractor is there but they don’t really know who tractor is!

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final

Any faith I might have had in the Sky commentary team has gone for ever.
Is he there, does anyone know?

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
hantssabre 25 May, 2019 15:28
They have found a picture of him online, probably from this site!

Also said earlier that Marcus has a stomach upset and isn’t at Lords which is a real shame

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
mikeindex 25 May, 2019 15:35
I'm sure Marcus is following eagerly - probably not daring to change his position at the moment (unless he has to) for fear of changing the luck.

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final

According to the Radio5 commentator Edwards has bowled "a lot of balls on Banton's pads".

Unfortunately he made a pause just before "on". Brian Johnston would have been ecstatic.

Liam Dawson split ring finger at the Bowl. Won't bat for England. Oh an Mark Wood going for a scan. Meanwhile Banton and Azhar settling my nerves nicely.

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Bagpuss 25 May, 2019 15:43
Oh and this thread is getting too long...

Re: 'The Nearly Men' Lord's Final
Shepton Paul 2 25 May, 2019 15:56
Is Vic there?

Well played Tom Banton. Didn’t spot a Mexican wave!
