Hampshire Hawks would be looking to move up on the points table as they take on the Kent Spitfires at their home ground in the next game of Vitality T20 Blast 2022. They defeated Glamorgan in their last game where their bowlers defended a small total successfully. Kent Spitfires defeated Somerset in the last game, but it has been a poor campaign for the side so far.  

Hampshire Hawks have won the last four games and have momentum on their side. They are playing at home where they have enjoyed a good record over the years. The knowledge of the conditions would offer them an advantage. The Spitfires would be confident after their massive win in the last game, and it would be interesting to see if they can carry this form forward.  

Hampshire Preview

It has been a great turnaround for James Vince’s side. They had lost the first four games of the season and since then have won four games in a row. They defeated Glamorgan by 9 runs in the last game. The bowling attack has done well in recent games, and this would add to the side’s confidence. Vince would like his players to carry on with the same momentum and get closer to a berth in the quart finals with a win in this game.  

Vince and Ben McDermott are good stroke players, and they would look to set up a good opening wicket stand. In the middle order, the side has lots of experience with Top Prest, Joe Weatherley, and Ross Whiteley in the team. Toby Albert and James Fuller have good hitting abilities, and this would add to the side’s confidence.  

Chris Wood and Liam Dawson bowled well in the last game, and they would look to make the Kent batsmen struggle. Brad Wheal picked five wickets in the last game, and this would add to his confidence. Mason Crane, Fuller, and Prest complete a well-balanced attack for the team and a good show would be needed from them in this contest.  

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

James Vince (c), Ben McDermott (wk), Aneurin Donald, Joe Weatherley, Ross Whiteley, James Fuller, Liam Dawson, Chris Wood, Nathan Ellis, Mason Crane, Brad Wheal

Kent Preview

It was a big win for Sam Billings’ side in the last game against Somerset. They put up a big score on the board and won by 32 runs. However, the side has gained form a little too late in the season. They have won just two games so far and sit at the bottom of the points table. Billings would like to see a strong show from his players as they look to improve their position on the points table.  

Tawanda Muyeye and Joe Denly shall have to provide a good start in the game as they haven’t been consistent at the top. Jordan Cox played a match-winning knock in the last game which will make him confident. He shall look to add runs with Billings and Grant Stewart. Alex Blake and George Linde can hit the ball and they will look to accelerate the scoring towards the end.  

Bowling hasn’t been the strength of the side and they would need tight spells from Fred Klaassen and Linde with the new ball. Qais Ahmed needs to do well being the most dependable bowler in this team. They would also need good performances from Matt Miles and Jack Leaning in this contest. 

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Sam Billings (c & wk), Joe Denly, Tawanda Muyeye, Jack Leaning, Jordan Cox, George Linde, Alex Blake, Grant Stewart, Qais Ahmad, Matt Milnes, Fred Klaassen

Weather Conditions

The skies over Southampton would have cloud cover on June 17 and this is likely to make the conditions tough for the batsmen. We have already seen a challenging surface here where batsmen have been forced onto the backfoot. The side batting first would be happy to have 160 runs on the board in these conditions.

Venue Details

The Rose Bowl, Southampton is one of the best bowling surfaces that offers bowlers a lot to be happy about in T20 cricket. The surface is lively, and we see the ball moving. Batsmen who play on the backfoot and accumulate runs have done well at this venue in the past. Spinners find it tough to bowl on this surface as the ball doesn’t turn much.

Toss: To Bat

Three out of the four games played so far have been won by sides batting first. It has been a challenging surface to bat on and it gets worse as the game progresses with batsmen struggling to time the ball in the second innings. The side winning the toss shall look to bat first in this game.

Kent Spitfires have struggled due to the inconsistency of their key players. Their batsmen have been in poor form in most games and the side would like to change that. They play a side that is in great form and hence their players shall need to pull up their socks to do well in this game. Hampshire Hawks have a strong batting line-up and come here with four consecutive wins and shall start favorites.
