Liveblog – Hants v Sussex Day 3


6:23 – Gone off a bit early for bad light. 230/6

5:50 – Hamilton-Brown just bowled by Tomlinson for 15. 209/6

5:42 – Prior’s century brings a big exodus around the ground. Bit of a bugger we’d be doing well without it.

5:37 – Just brought up the 200 to avoid the follow on condeming the game to a draw. Prior on 99.

5:02 – Nearly missed it, but Cork just got Hodd, now 177/5. Follow on looks unlikely.

3:40 – Prior just got his 50, they’re 113/4

3:18 – Goodwin run-out by Taylor, the classic batsman hits it straight, bowler gets a finger to it and runs out the non-striker who’s out of his crease.

3:13 – 50 partnership is up with Prior getting 40 of them. Cork could’ve had a wicket the ball after Joyce it either didn’t carry or was dropped. Several variations of fuck were heard even from this distance.

2:02 – And Cork’s just bowled Joyce for 3. 46/3.

1:57 – Nash out bowled Tomlinson caught by Adams for 33. 46/2. And the sun’s out again.

1:45 – Cork just got Yardy plum lbw for 7. 32/1

1:14 – Sussex got to 31/0 at lunch, Tomlinson had a few go past the outside edge but not a lot of great chances.

12:20 – Either Nic Pothas reads this blog or, slightly less likely, my mind. Hants have just declared on 350/8.

11:58 – Play just about to start, still miserable weather. I’d get to 350 for the bonus point then try to bowl them out cheaply. The only chance we have of winning is if they follow on.

11:09 – Due to a delayed train I’m still waiting for the bus, and to make it worse it’s very overcast. On the plus side I haven’t missed any cricket as it’s been delayed with an inspection on 20 minutes.
