Description:
Hampshire Cricket is one of the 18 major county clubs which make up the English and Welsh national cricket structure, representing the historic county of Hampshire. Their limited overs team is called the Hampshire Royals following a link up with the Rajasthan Royals, after previously being known as the Hampshire Hawks. Their kit colours are yellow and royal blue.

The club plays the majority of its home games at The Rose Bowl, newly built in 2001 and located at West End, near Southampton. Hampshire was previously based at the County Ground in Northlands Road, Southampton, which had been its home since 1885. The team had also played many matches in Portsmouth at the United Services Recreation Ground and in Bournemouth at Dean Park and occasional games in Aldershot, Alton, Basingstoke, Cowes and Winchester before moving all competitive matches to The Rose Bowl. In 2008 matches at May's Bounty in Basingstoke resumed and one county fixture is played there each year.

Hampshire are currently in Division One of the County Championship, a competition they have won twice. Their most recent success was on 14 August 2010 when they won the 2010 Friends Provident t20 at their home ground, beating Somerset as a result of losing fewer wickets in their innings, after the scores were tied.
