Carberry falters for Hampshire

England batsman Michael Carberry made a six-ball duck for Hampshire on day one of the LV= County Championship season.

Hampshire struggled to 37 for three in a rain-reduced opening to their Division Two match against Worcestershire at Southampton.

The visitors won the toss and chose to field but play was held up after rain affected the Rose Bowl outfield, with the match finally getting under way in mid-afternoon.

Hampshire lost opener Carberry when he fell lbw at the end of the first over to Chris Russell, who was also responsible for James Vince departing without scoring six overs later.

Between those dismissals, Liam Dawson was bowled for two by Charles Morris.

Carberry's fellow opener Jimmy Adams scored freely to reach 32 not out, before the umpire called stumps midway through the ninth over.
