Hampshire v Derbyshire YB40

My following of last night's game was down to very occasional glances at the club's Twitter feed, thanks to the extraordinary nature of Bruce Springsteen's gig at Hampden Park in Glasgow.

A short summation? The two spinners (one of them part-time)  did well; the seamers didn't. Only very good batting sides can chase nearly 280 and we're not near that, at this stage in the team's development.

It appears to have been a fair effort at a run chase, but the run out of Chanderpaul was costly and, as at Durham in the same competition, we gave away too many runs and made life hard for ourselves in doing so.

Next up, the Scotland game, which logic suggests will be easier.

Hopefully that's the case.

PS Springsteen?  Simply on  a different level. Three hours and forty minutes of the most rousing (and at times moving) rock you could imagine, with perhaps the best band on the planet.

Unforgettable.
