Royal London One-Day Cup has come to the end of the league phase with only last match remaining for every team. Durham and Hampshire are in a good position and are all set to play the quarterfinals. They are yet to finalize their position in the points table and the opposition in the points table. Both teams despite qualifying for the next stages will look to fix their missing links in this match and further strengthen their playing XI before going to the knockouts. Hampshire will need to maintain their positive run rate (NRR +0.765) even if they lose this match else their place might come under jeopardy.

Teams Preview

Durham Preview

Durham posted a massive score of 289/9 in the last match with all their top-9 players scoring runs in double digits. Alex Lees (93 runs) and David Bedingham (66 runs) scored most of runs and their 86-run partnership was crucial in the middle order which built the platform. They scored 78 runs off last 10 overs despite losing 7 wickets with every player chipping in with runs.

Paul Van Meekran and Liam Trevaskis took 3 wickets each and dismissed the top-5 batsmen of the opposition to derail their chase. Scott Borthwick took 2 wickets while Matt Salisbury and Graham Clark chipped with a wicket each to dismiss the opposition for 243-all out in the last game.

Top players to bet on:

David Bedingham – Bedingham`s knock provided the momentum to their batting as he scored 66 runs off 41 balls with 5 boundaries and 6 sixes. He will look to play positively in this match too and help his team post a massive score.

Paul Van Meekran – Van Meekram had bowling figures of 8-0-45-3 in the last game and dismissed two players inside the powerplay which proved to be a big boost for their team. His ability to take wickets early will be a big advantage for the team.

Durham Predicted Playing XI:

Graham Clark, Alex Lees, Scott Borthwick (c), David Bedingham, Cameron Bancroft (wk), Sean Dickson, Ned Eckersley, Liam Trevaskis, Luke Doneathy, Paul van Meekeren, Matt Salisbury

Hampshire Preview

Hampshire ended up on the winning side in a rain curtailed match. Tom Alsop (37 runs), Ian Holland (30* runs), and Joe Weatherley (25 runs) took their team across the line in the 107-run chase. Nick Gubbins and Tom Prest are also amongst the runs in this season.

Their bowling unit performed as a unit to bowl out the opposition for just 105 runs. Ian Holland was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 5-0-12-4. Scott Curie (2 wickets), Kyle Abbott (1 wicket), John Turner (1 wicket), and Tom Scriven (1 wicket) claimed wickets at regular intervals at the other end in the match.

Top players to bet on:

Ian Holland – Holland had an all-round performance last night with 30 runs off 21 balls and bowling figures of 5-0-12-4. He dismissed 4 of the top-5 batters and made a huge impact with bat and ball effectively.

Kyle Abbott – Abbott has 7 wickets in this season so far but 5 of them came in a single match. He has been unlucky to get wickets but is bowling at good economy rate of less than 5.5 RPO to keep the scoring rate in check in power play.

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Alsop (wk), Tom Prest, Nick Gubbins, Joe Weatherley, Ian Holland, James Fuller, Felix Organ, Tom Scriven, Kyle Abbott (c), John Turner, Scott Currie

Weather Conditions

Chester-le-street has a bright and sunny weather with just 10% chances of rain on the match day. We don’t expect rain to make an appearance in this match.

Venue Details

Chester-le-street is a placid track with a good bounce for the batsmen to play their shots freely. The ball might seam around in the early parts of the match. We expect the average scores in this match to be around 270-280 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

The pitch is expected to stay same throughout the match and teams will opt to bat second here as it is a safe option.

DUR vs HAM Winning Prediction

Durham are one of the strongest teams in the Group A and their current position at the top of the point’s table vindicates it. They have a strong batting line-up and an equally potent bowling attack.  Hampshire are having a rollercoaster ride so far with their batting relying heavily on Nick Gubbins so far. Their bowling unit lacks a wicket taker who can topple the opposition easily. We expect Durham to win this match and finish as table-toppers.

DURHAM will win the match
