Match Notes

  • Vince double helps crush Essex

    At the end of the match, an attendant struggled for almost 45 minutes to remove an Essex flag that had been on display for the last three days. It was at odds with the resistance the team had showed in a record-equalling defeat

  • Abbott, Vince show Hampshire class

    Hampshire built on a superb bowling display with a brutal last two sessions on day two with the bat to lead Essex by 429. In Kyle Abbott and James Vince, they boast two exceptional players of international class.

  • Bopara limits Hants but host on top

    Ravi Bopara slipped through the Hampshire middle order to reduce the hosts to 286 but Essex finished the opening day on the back foot after being reduced to 55 for 2.
