HAM Team News

With two of their last four games ending without a result, Hampshire will be desperately hoping for good weather on Friday evening as they look to move up from fifth place in the South Group into the top four and quarter final places.

HAM Team Batting

Although they have not been at their best in many games as yet this season, Hampshire have a fine and long batting line-up and the Sussex bowlers will have a tough job in this game. James Vince and Ben McDermott are a formidable opening pair.

HAM Team Bowling

On a pitch which is likely to offer some assistance to the bowlers, the pace attack of Michael Neser and John Turner are likely to cause problems for the Sussex batters. Equally, the medium pacers of James Fuller and Benny Howell will put the ball in the correct areas.

HAM Team Form

Hampshire have lost two, had one abandonment and one no-result across their last four matches.

Sussex Team News & Playing 11

SUS Team News

After their winning run was ended by Surrey in their previous match, Sussex returned to winning ways immediately with a convincing 31 run victory against Kent Spitfires on Thursday evening. The Sharks will now be looking to make it successive wins over the Hawks after winning by six runs in their last head to head.

SUS Team Batting

At the top of the order, Harrison Ward will be full of self-belief in this game after he struck a quickfire 61 runs from 28 balls against Kent. Australian Daniel Hughes has also been in strong form and the pair will look to get the run-rate up in the opening partnership of the innings in this match.

SUS Team Bowling

With a bowling attack including England international Ollie Robinson and former T20 World Cup winner Tymal Mills along with Nathan McAndrew and Danny Lamb, Sussex have excellent variety. Early wickets will be key in this match and that will be the responsibility of Robinson and McAndrew.

SUS Team Form

Sussex come into this fixture after winning four of their last five games in the tournament.

This looks like being an excellent game as Sussex make the short journey along the south coast to visit Hampshire. The Sharks are in fine form but it is the Hawks who have the stronger record in this fixture and will have home advantage.
