2 weeks away and we wallop Kent, Middlecrap and Glamshit in the 20/20, as well as steamrollering Kent in the CC (can we play them every week?). Mr Briggs has become 5th highest wicket taker in the country for the 20/20, with wickets gallore in the last two weeks, including remarkable figures against Kent of 4-0-5-3. As if it couldn't get any better, Adams tops the 20/20 run scoring for the country, 50 ahead of his next rival (fat man Cossie). This has included yet another 20/20 century, as well as a further 100 runs in his last two matches combined. 551 is his total so far, and there are still two group matches left.
Cork's medium pace swing bowling proved too much for Kent in the CC, as the pensioner took 7 wickets in the match and broke Key's apple-turnover hand too in the second innings. He now tops the CC bowling charts at Hamshire with 24. Tommo moved onto 22 during that match, as both overtook Kabir. The only problem with that being that Kabir only played the first 4 matches. A first ball duck in the only innings of the match meant that Adams slipped down to 4th in the run getting stakes at The Rose Bowl after the Kent game. Carbs' 158 took him top, and nearly to 700 CC runs for the season with 3 centuries and 2 50s so far. Macca has hit his straps also, recording his second century for Hants, plus moving onto 650 runs for the season. The accolades keep coming for Slug though - 663 CC runs so far, the only Hampshire batsman to average over 50 (55.25), a better strike rate than anyone else, more than double the number of 6s than anyone else, 13 wickets, the highest score of the season (237*), the only batsman with a double century this season. Slugs rule.
It will be okay
