JAMES Vince rewrote the Hampshire record books with the highest one-day score in England for 11 years.

The Hampshire captain made an incredible 190 as his side made it four wins out of four in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

It is the highest score on English soil since Ravi Bopara’s unbeaten 201 for Essex in 2008 and Vince now has Hampshire’s highest two individual List A scores after surpassing his previous best of 178, made against Glamorgan two years ago, writes Alex Smith.

This innings surpassed it, not just because of the score but the fact it came in a winning cause after Hampshire were reduced to 65-4.

Vince, who shared a record 186-run stand for the fifth wicket with Liam Dawson, guided his side to 331 before Gloucestershire were all out for 246, completing a 71-run (DLS) victory.

Hampshire were put in on a good wicket, with variable conditions helping Chris Liddle (4-66) take three of the four wickets to fall in the first 15 overs.

David Payne was the first to strike as Tom Alsop attempted an extravagant drive in the second over and was bowled through the gate.

Liddle had Aiden Markram caught behind before Sam Northeast and Rilee Rossouw chopped on.

Enter Dawson. He and Vince negotiated Gloucestershire’s niggling line and length before reaching fluent 50s – both from 63 balls.

Their186-run stand is a club record for the fifth wicket. It eventually ended when Dawson (73) picked out former Hampshire teammate Benny Howell at long-on.

Vince has now passed fifty in three of his four one-day innings this summer – and given himself a chance of an England recall for next month’s World Cup. It was must-watch cricket as Vince moved through the gears and struck five huge sixes – the pick of which saw him dance down the wicket and deposit a checked drive over cover.

He reached 100 in 111 balls and 150 in 138 as he went from 100 to 190 in 43 deliveries.

Vince’s assault helped Hampshire add 114 runs in the last 10 overs. James Fuller’s 13-ball 21 included the biggest maximum of the day over square leg.

Vince was given a rapturous reception after eventually scooping to point.

Fuller and Gareth Berg also departed late on, before DLS altered the visitors’ target to 318 off 47 overs.

Kyle Abbott stunted Gloucestershire’s reply. George Hankins was caught at point by Northeast and Gareth Roderick was caught and bowled.

Captain Chris Dent was run out by Northeast’s direct hit, as the visitors slumped to 38-3.

A stunning outfield catch by Dawson accounted for James Bracey off Mason Crane (3-64), 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 2-32. Brad Wheal then bowled Ryan Higgins.

A 50-run last-wicket stand delayed the inevitable before Hampshire completed their victory with 19 balls to spare.

Vince, who hit 15 fours as well as his five sixes, said: “I didn’t think I’d have the chance to get 190 today at one point. From where we were, they would have expected to bowl us out for under 250. Daws played a crucial role alongside me; if he wasn’t there we wouldn’t have had a platform to launch from at the end.

“When we came together we just had to spend as much time at the crease as possible.”

He added: “I’ve thought about England briefly but at this moment I’m not in the preliminary squad. Hopefully I get a go against Ireland, but all I can really do is keep taking my chances and prove I’m the man to step in.”

Hampshire are away to Essex on Sunday.
