Jimmy's Hampshire Blog: An Introduction

on June 2, 2008 by Administrator

Where do you start with these bloggy things – it’d probably make sense to give a quick recap as to the story so far but generally I’d have thought most people will already know the result aspect of Hampshire’s cricket so I’ll try when i get round to it to waffle on about odds and sods happening behind the scenes… But to start…

We had a pretty chaotic pre-season to be honest. No Warne, Udal or Bruce led to a few furrowed brows while the news that Dimi was joining the IPL coupled with Nic Pothas signing for the ICL caused further consternation. The uncertainty other the ICL’s legality was also causing headaches for the management as to Shane Bond’s availability.

Fortunately Bondy was cleared to play in time for the season opener and everyone was fit (well fit enough at least). Alas the clean-ish bill of health was not to last. A month or so in and our physio is having sleepless nights – there have been injuries galore as Nic Pothas, John Crawley, Shane Bond, Chris Tremlett amongst many others have been forced to miss games. So much so that at Taunton last week we handed a debut to young all-rounder Hamza Riazuddin and had four different wicket keepers over the game.
