Share This Post

Aneurin Donald’s sensational consecutive century led Hampshire to a resounding victory over Worcestershire in the Metro Bank semi-final. Donald’s mesmerizing innings of 115, in partnership with Ben Brown, powered Hampshire to a commanding total of 306 for 9 after an unfavorable toss. Brad Wheal’s remarkable spell, securing four wickets for a mere six runs, ultimately sealed Hampshire’s gripping ten-run win as Worcestershire finished at 296 for 9.

Donald’s brilliance was on full display, as his expansive stroke range and rapid scoring left spectators in awe. Collaborating with Brown, Donald’s 162-run fourth-wicket partnership revitalized Hampshire’s innings, with his 115 runs off 73 balls, featuring 13 fours and four sixes, accelerating the team’s run rate.

Wheal’s game-changing second spell proved pivotal, effectively turning the tide in Hampshire’s favor. His 2-over spell yielded four crucial wickets, clinching the victory and securing Hampshire’s spot in the Edgbaston semi-final.

Worcestershire’s pursuit was commendable, with Captain Jake Libby’s run-a-ball 70 and partnerships building momentum. However, Hampshire’s Liam Dawson and Mason Crane’s key breakthroughs swung the momentum back in favor of Hampshire.
