Hants must win last three after rain hits Ageas Bowl

Hampshire have to win their last three group games to have a chance of reaching the Royal London One-Day Cup quarter-finals after last night’s abandonment at The Ageas Bowl.

Sean Terry hit his second fifty in three days as Hampshire made 249 after winning the toss, but torrential rain meant Northants’ reply never began.

Opening the batting, Terry followed the career-best 63 he made at No.7 in a losing cause against Leicestershire 48 hours earlier with a 66-ball 53, including three fours and two sixes over long-on.

Hampshire would have hoped for more, having been 182-3 when the five-over batting powerplay began at the beginning of the 36th, but the post-innings deluge meant a share of the points.

Jimmy Adams’ side can still finish in the top four, but they will have to beat Worcestershire at The Ageas Bowl on Monday and Essex at Chelmsford on Wednesday to have a chance going into their last game at home to leaders Yorkshire on August 21.

Hants got out of jail thanks to the rain - they would have lost if Northants batted esp if DL came into play. WHat has happened to this team of all conquering giants since May when they could do no wrong? I particualarly look at Irvine and especially Matt Coles and wonder where their brains have gone.

Sliding in the County Championship ("proper cricket") and on the way out of the One Day Cup. All this team cares about is the Mickey Mouse T20s...

I get the feeling that something is not right in the dressing room. The boys just seem to be a bit lacklustre on the pitch. I don't think it's becase they only care about 20/20 but something is not right. Coud it be the new coach?
W hy are they so keen get Maxwell back? Apart f rom one good innings and a couple catches he did nothing.

Why on earth do we keep batting first when there's rain about? We would have beaten Leicester with a bit of common sense after winning the toss.
