I can imagine it goes something like this

I worked down pit for 73 hours just in my undies and then went straight to match and bowled 87 overs in a row in my hob nail boots, modern cricketers have it easy  Very Happy

I had the pleasure of being at the 1st ODI V West Indies at OT in 84 to see Viv's legendary 189 not out. Windies batted 1st and were reduced to something like 160 for 9 as Holding came out to the middle to join Viv who at that stage was about 90 odd not out. Still remember about 3 of the sixes flying over my head as I watched on in amazement like everyone else. He made it look all so effortless as well.West Indies ended with a score of about 270 of which Viv had scored 189no. They won easily of course but what a fabulous day's cricket.

Thought I'd post this up for any cricket fans we have, it is Matt Parkinson of Lancashire today who did this to Northants Rossington.

Thought this was an interesting perspective -

'The IPL would have a lot to do with this' - analysis
BBC cricket correspondent Jonathan Agnew

This is quite bizarre because last night the players all passed their PCR tests. We went to bed thinking the match would go ahead.

I suspect the IPL would have a lot to do with this. It starts in 10 days' time. The players are on huge contacts. The IPL is worth £300m to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

They are desperate to protect their product and the players protect their contracts. This stands to cost the ECB £20m, one assumes there would be some negotiations about that with the BCCI.

It is a shame Covid has interfered with a brilliant series.

It does sound dodgy, the IPL has too much pull it seems. Test matches get lower down in the priorities which is a real shame.

Amazing win for Lancs just now!!!

I've been listening to the commentary all afternoon and it's been utterly nail-biting stuff!!!

We need two, they needed one wicket!

And if they had taken that wicket and won the game they would have been county champions themselves!!!

We now head the County Championship table in the last round of games and only Warwickshire can now beat us - if the win on the last day tomorrow against Summerset - and by just half a point!

Wonderful stuff and fingers crossed!


Just to give you a flavour of the match -

Lancs need 20 to win with 5 wickets in hand -

Dawson versus Vilas. Who will come out on top?
Two runs. One wicket. Maybe even a tie?

Vilas tries to cut. They think of a single. No run.

BREAKING
LANCASHIRE BEAT HAMPSHIRE BY ONE WICKET
Lancashire 141 & 198-9 v Hampshire 143 & 193

Dane Vilas sweeps Liam Dawson for four through midwicket and Lancashire have won!

Hampshire's title hopes are over.

Lancashire have done what they can. Now they must hope Somerset prevent Warwickshire from winning at Edgbaston.

Captain's knock
Lancashire 198-9 beat Hampshire by one wicket

With that boundary, Dane Vilas has played one of the great captain's innings. He ends 47 not out to drag Lancashire over the line.

Posted at 17:33
Hard luck Hampshire
Lancashire 141 & 198-9 beat Hampshire 143 & 193 by one wicket

Hampshire end up one wicket short of being County Champions. Their chance has gone.

Posted at 17:37
Hearts in mouths
Lancashire 141 & 198-9 beat Hampshire 143 & 193 by one wicket

From 177-5 and 187-6, Lancashire looked like they would get over the line with a little bit to spare. But to go from 177-5 to 194-9 showed that nerves were jangling with a run-out and a crazy decision from a number ten to take the bowling.

Crucially though, Vilas stayed in the middle. Other than the two balls at Matt Parkinson, Vilas' presence meant Lancashire were always favourites.

17:41
Lancashire at Lord's
Lancashire 141 & 198-9 beat Hampshire 143 & 193 by one wicket

One thing we do know from Lancashire's point after that dramatic victory. They can finish no lower than second in the table and so they will be in the Bob Willis Trophy Final at Lord's next week.

Very tense. Catch the end here. (I wouldn't bother with the whole 7 hours).

Good point - Livingstone is playing in the IPL and the other two are being rested by England!

We seem to have about three or more teams these days - a full strength side with the likes of Anderson and Butler, a regular 'red' ball team that played today, a 'white' ball team that plays various forms of one day cricket - and even a youth team that seemed to play in one of those variations!

Tbh I follow Lancs and even I don't know half the players who are on the team sheet half the time these days!

Today's game - well to be truthful all three days of it - has been pure theatre and wonderful entertainment.

Well done to the lads!

Equally relevant, Nat, was the fact that Lancs won without the awesome, injured England international fast bowler Saqib Mahmood. who has played in the majority of Lancs County Championship games this season.

What a thrilling match and great result!

He's not awesome???

He's not even the top of Lancs bowling averages!

If we ignore Rob Jones who is second in the national averages - but he's only taken one wicket from three overs - and Jimmy who is fourth but only played four games and took 11 wickets.

And also Luke Wells (15th) who played more games but only bowled the same number as Jimmy did for 10 wickets, then our best bowler is Tom Bailey (21st) with 50 wickets at 16.86 per wicket.

Matt Parkinson (43rd) comes next 36 at 20.56.

Saqib Mammood (74th) has only 28 wickets at 23.89.

He's only had one innings of taking 5 or more wickets (5-47) in the whole season - Jimmy had one (7-19) in just four games (276 balls bowled)

Saqib bowled 1,399 balls.

https://cricketarchive.com/thecricketer/Events/LV=_Insurance_County_Championship_2021/Bowling_by_Average.html

And fwiw his batting average is a piffling 10.42 in the entire season, scoring just 73 runs from 11 at bat (four not outs), with a top score of 20.

He's a long way short of ever filling Jimmy's boots - now he really IS awesome!

Yes I've been following it a bit.

They only need 5 wickets now with half a day to go...

Come on Summerset, we need your help!

Yes. He needs an umpiring performance of Barry Knight proportions.

Slowish start for England which the comms describe as "patient". Bring on Liam Livingstone!
