Hampshire Preview

Hampshire are coming off a massive 163-run win against Kent. After being asked to bat first, Hampshire posted a colossal 396-5 on the board and bundled the opposition out for 233. Tom Prest top-scored with a stunning 181 off 138 balls. Skipper and opener Nick Gubbins also showed his class with a composed knock of 117 off 107 balls. Ben Brown and Toby Albert showed in the first game that they can provide some stability to the middle order with knocks of 47 and 49 respectively. 

New ball bowler Scott Currie has been among the wickets this season, picking up 4 at an economy of 5.20. Left-armer Jack Campbell had a good outing in the last match where he returned figures of 4-44 in 7.2 overs. However, Hampshire would be most impressed with off-spinner Felix Organ who has picked up 5 wickets so far at just 4.88.
 

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

Nick Gubbins (c), Aneurin Donald, Tom Prest, Ben Brown (wk), Fletcha Middleton, Felix Organ, Ian Holland, Toby Albert, Scott Currie, Jack Campbell , John Turner

Northamptonshire Preview

After losing their first game to Yorkshire, Northamptonshire made a strong comeback in their next outing by taking down Essex by 3 wickets. Chasing a formidable target of 344 runs, Northamptonshire won with 2 balls to spare. The heroes of the chase were Saif Zaib (136 off 101 balls) and captain Will Young (81 off 76 balls) who took their team from 14-2 to 226-3. 

In both their games, the Northants have batted well and crossed the score of 300. Skipper Young, who also struck 91 off 64 balls in the first match against Yorkshire, has looked the best batter of the team. Wicket-keeper batter Lewis McManus had played a crucial knock of 82 off 62 balls in the first match and will be looking to repeat that performance again. 

Northamptonshire’s bowling is a bit of a worry as they have conceded over 300 runs in both the games. However, they will take heart from Nathan Buck’s spell of 5-59 in the last match. The other bowlers have been a tad lackluster and will need to pull up their socks.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Will Young (c), Emilio Gay, Ricardo Vasconcelos, Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib, James Sales, Lewis McManus (wk), Nathan Buck, Tom Taylor, Jack White, Alex Russell

Weather Conditions

The pitch at the Rose Bowl is pretty good for batting but tends to slow down as the game goes on. The team batting first will enjoy the hardness of the wicket and runs should flow, but seamers will get some help too. Spinners will have a role to play in both innings.

The weather in Southampton is expected to be partly sunny and warm on the day of the game.
 

Venue Details

The average score batting first at the Rose Bowl is 255. In the first match of the season played here, Hampshire scored 236 off 49.3 overs after being asked to bat first and won the game by 44 runs. The team batting first in this match should be looking to set a target of around 280 runs.

Toss: To Bat

This is still a fresh wicket as only one game has been played here so far. So the team winning the toss is likely to take first strike.

In the last 4 completed matches between Hampshire and Northamptonshire, the Northants have won 3 while Hampshire has won 1 game. Hampshire will be high on confidence currently and will have the edge in this clash. Northamptonshire’s batting is expected to impress once again, but their bowling might let them down.

Back Hampshire to emerge victorious in this clash.
