Vince’s 190 is too much for county

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORTING INDEX -

JAMES Vince set a new Hamp­shire record high­est List A score by crash­ing an in­cred­i­ble 190 as Hamp­shire eased past Glouces­ter­shire in the Royal Lon­don One Day Cup.

Vince beat his own best of 178, which he scored against Glam­or­gan in 2017, and the in­nings was even more spe­cial for the sit­u­a­tion, hav­ing ar­rived at the crease in the sec­ond over be­fore Hamp­shire were re­duced to 65 for four.

Vince, along­side Liam Dawson in a record 186-run stand for the fifth wicket, guided his side to 331 be­fore bowl­ing Glouces­ter­shire out for 246 to com­plete a 71 run vic­tory by the DLS method.

Hamp­shire ini­tially strug­gled as they col­lapsed to 65 for four – with Chris Lid­dle the chief de­stroyer with the ball, dis­miss­ing Ai­den Markram, Sam North­east and Rilee Ros­souw.

Dawson and Vince added 186 be­fore Dawson fell for 73 as he picked out Benny Howell at long-on to hand Lid­dle fig­ures of four for 66.

Vince’s as­sault saw his side score 114 runs in the last 10 overs, and he even­tu­ally suc­cumbed for 190 be­fore scoop­ing to Tom Smith at point and was given a rap­tur­ous re­cep­tion from the Ageas Bowl mem­bers.

Fuller and Gareth Berg also de­parted late on as Hamp­shire reached 331 for eight, with DLS al­ter­ing the tar­get to 318 off 47 overs.

Kyle Ab­bott stunted Glouces­ter­shire’s re­ply by dis­miss­ing Ge­orge Hank­ins in the third over, caught at point by North­east, and then Gareth Rod­er­ick, caught and bowled.

Cap­tain Chris Dent was run out by North­east’s di­rect hit, as the vis­i­tors slumped to 38 for three.

Ma­son Crane, who posted three for 64, had James Bracey caught by a stun­ning out­field catch by Dawson, be­fore Howell was lbw to the leg-spin­ner.

Jack Tay­lor was bowled by Crane, be­fore Dawson had Graeme van Bu­uren stumped and Smith cas­tled to com­plete fig­ures of two for 32 and Brad Wheal bowled Ryan Hig­gins.

Hamp­shire were held up by a 50-run stand for the last stand be­tween David Payne and Lid­dle but Hamp­shire com­pleted their vic­tory with 19 balls to spare.
