Weird Hampshire team. Alsop is down as keeper, despite Wheater playing, McManus (a keeper batsman) is listed as number 11, although that will certainly change. No Carberry despite him having been named in the squad.
HK Adams, TP Alsop†, AJA Wheater, LA Dawson, WR Smith, SM Ervine*, GK Berg, GM Andrew, MS Crane, RA Stevenson, LD McManus
Did expect to see Carberry. Odd side as you say - McManus didn't bat, bowl or keep (??). Any idea why Alsop went off? Was looking good.
Easy to say now, but I backed Essex to chase that all the way. It's not often that 310 doesn't look like enough but there were almost no edges or misses and the ropes were quite far in.
No doubt you're disappointed with the result, and it's no consolation, but it was a great game for the neutral (even the girlfriend - but she does think I should give in and support Hampshire).
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
