Hampshire has been struggling in the bottom half of the points table and they need to regroup and win more matches consistently to keep their qualification hopes alive. Every loss will push them closer to elimination. Hampshire`s 3-match winning streak came to an end in their last game and they will look to regain momentum with a win in this match.

Southampton weather looks bright and breezy with just 10% chances of rain as per the forecasters.  We expect rain to not make a big appearance in this game.

Venue Details

Rose Bowl has been a slightly double paced wicket with bat stopping and coming at few times. Batsmen dominated the first two matches while bowlers came to the fore in the last game. We expect a placid pitch with an average score of 300 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 2-1 win-loss record here and teams winning the toss has won all the matches played here. Both captains will look to win the toss and bowl first at this venue.

Worcestershire has one of the most dominant batting line-ups in this season so far with contributions from 4-5 different players. Worcestershire bowlers have been taken for runs but their batters have made up for it so far. Hampshire too has a good batting and bowling line-up but lacks layers making big scores and potent threatening pace or spin bowler. We expect Worcestershire to win this match as Hampshire has poor record in their home venue this season.

Worcestershire will win this match.
