My HAMPSHIRE Hawks Cricket team charged to an astonishing six-wicket victory with 42 balls to spare over Glamorgan at the Ageas Bowl to qualify for the Vitality Blast quarter-finals.
The Hawks started the day sitting in sixth place on the South Group table, needing to chase down fourth-placed Surrey’s run-rate to have any chance of progressing, which they did courtesy of Gloucestershire’s defeat to Somerset. They lost many games earlier in the season but then won 5 games straight to squeeze into 4th place in division.
I took off half a day PTO Friday to watch two cricket matches on Friday and then the final game of the regular season was on Sunday. We needed to beat 185 run inside 14.1 overs to leapfrog fourth-placed Surrey – which they achieved in 13 thanks overs to a 43 from 13 balls from Joe Weatherley and 69 off 30 from D’Arcy Short. ❌✅❌❌🌧 🌧❌🌧❌✅✅✅✅✅ is their regular season tally of results.
LIFE LESSON: Often sports throws up turnaround stories. Little life lessons like this illustrate how unpredictable and joyful life can be and how much control you have as to how successful you can be. Your past performance will be used by others as a means to judge your potential future results but you have the means and manner to change that and ultimately decide how you will be remembered.
