Match Notes

  • Hampshire bag full batting points

    Hampshire's James Vince made the best of a heavily rain-affected draw with Surrey by hitting an impressive 159.

  • Result 'first option' despite rain - Ford

    History suggests that this rain-ravaged contest between two of the second division's likelier promotion candidates is heading for a dull draw after losing all but 74 of a possible 288 overs across the first three days

  • Vince drives himself into contention

    A second high quality century of the season ought to have moved James Vince up the queue of traffic hoping to benefit from England's miserable winter

  • Surrey waste early opportunity

    To say that not much has gone to script for Surrey over the last few years is a bit like suggesting England were a touch off their game in Australia last winter
