Hampshire Team News & Playing 11

HAM Team News

Once again, Hampshire have recruited very strongly particularly with their overseas players for this campaign. Keeper-batter Ben McDermott returns for his third successive T20 Blast with the county and they have also signed Michael Neser. Afghan Naveen-ul-Haq will join up after the T20 World Cup. 

HAM Team Batting

In Ben McDermott and skipper James Vince, Hampshire Hawks have arguably the strongest opening pair of the tournament. And with neither involved in the T20 World Cup for their country’s, we can expect some big opening partnerships, starting with this match.

HAM Team Bowling

Michael Neser has an excellent record across all-formats and impressed for Glamorgan in last year’s T20 Blast. Alongside him, John Turner will bowl with good pace and accuracy but we expect Liam Dawson’s left-arm spin to be tough to face.

HAM Team Form

Hampshire reached final’s day in 2023 and won four in a row before their defeat in the semi-final.

Surrey Team News & Playing 11

SUR Team News

With a strong T20 Blast tradition, Surrey reached final’s day once again in 2023 but were beaten by eventual winners Somerset by 24 runs in the semi-final. Ahead of this opener, they will be without Sam Curran and Will Jacks who are both in the England T20 World Cup squad.

SUR Team Batting

Although Surrey will miss the attacking and clean hitting ability of Will Jacks at the top of the order, in Laurie Evans and Jason Roy they have a very strong opening pair. They also have plenty of firepower down the order with Tom Curran, Sean Abbott and Jamie Overton all talented finishers in T20 cricket.

SUR Team Bowling

Surrey may be without some of their batting stars and Sam Curran’s bowling will be hard to replace but in Sean Abbott and Spencer Johnson they have two exceptional Australian white ball players. Gus Atkinson and Jamie Overton will both bowl with good pace.

SUR Team Form

Surrey had a poor end to the group stage in 2023 and lost four of their last five matches.

Surrey Predicted Playing 11

Laurie Evans, Jason Roy, Jamie Smith (wk), Jordan Clark, Tom Lawes, Tom Curran, Sean Abbott, Jamie Overton, Spencer Johnson, Cameron Steel, Gus Atkinson

🏆 Hampshire vs Surrey Prediction
