Kevin Pietersen was booed off after he was out first ball to Liam Dawson for the second time this season.

The former Hampshire batsman played the role of pantomime villain in his first innings since being dropped by England.

And his struggle against slow left-armers resurfaced against Dawson, who also dismissed him for a diamond duck in Hampshire's t20 win at The Oval last month.

Having received a mixed reception as he strode to the middle, Pietersen was bowled by a beauty, and was roundly booed as he made his way back to the dressing room.

Hampshire stayed on course for the Clydesdale Bank 40 semi finals by beating Surrey by four wickets.

We win group (barring a massive swing in runrates) if ...
Surrey fail to win v Glamorgan tomorrow or if Surrey fail to beat Somerset next w/e or if we avoid defeat at Durham next w/e.
So we are much nearer than one win away D.E., I said this last weekend too - why don't you check the table and the fixtures?
Pieterson is a Skunt.

Well done to all sectors of Hampshire who booed this traitorous egotist. Text that KP -if we have to lose we will lose as Englishmen without mercenaries.

Two great days of cricket basking in the belated summer sun. KP's dismissal and listening to the stick he was getting from the faithfull - icing on the cake!! If he wondered where he stood with the rank and file I reckon he knows now!

Spirit of 58 don't forget there are a few S.African Englishmen in our team!!

What a great day,but was a little disappointed with the turnout considering it was free! We were told it was a sellout but the ground looked less than 50% full.

So the scorecard reads ..

An arrogant non-entity bowled by a proper cricketer for nothing.

Ironically his score reflects what he has done for every team he has played for.

Bad luck Surrey. It's your turn to learn now.
