A brief note on Danny Briggs

The man from the Isle of Wight has given Hampshire a glimmer of hope in this game against Durham with a morale boosting 28 at the end. Along with Kabir Ali and Griffiths, Briggs helped Hampshire add 61 for the last two wickets after the dreadful collapse yesterday afternoon. Starting the day on 298-8, Kabir secured the vital third batting point by the fourth ball of the day, though fell not all that long after. Griffiths joined Briggs at the crease and thrashed his second ball for four, but from then on the early morning belonged to the 18 year old spinner, who carted Plunkett for 16 in one over, including consecutive fours and a 6. To fall agonisingly short of a fourth batting point is frustrating but I would have taken 345 with both hands if offered it at 10:50 this morning.
