THE PREDICTION

Neither of these two sides are set to qualify for the knockout stage of the Vitality Blast, so both are playing for pride in this one. Essex Eagles were comfortably beaten by Sussex last time out, whilst Hampshire Hawks are playing for the first of a double header that sees them face two matches on the same day in Southampton. Having won their last two T20 Blast games, the Hawks are in good form and that momentum should lead them to victory against a side they have already beaten away from home in the South Group this season.
