THE LOWDOWN

The home team come into this on the back of an extremely disappointing season in the Blast for the Hampshire Hawks. The hosts did manage to defeat Gloucestershire by ten runs last week but prior to that, they hadn’t won in their previous seven matches - admittedly, three of those were abandoned due to the rain. They come up against a Somerset side that have clicked into gear as the Blast has gone on. Now, they have won five of their last six as they inch towards securing their qualification.

THE PREDICTION

This match seems like a foregone conclusion ahead of the match. The depth and ‘knowing how to win’ elements of this Somerset side have existed for a couple of years now across all of the formats. The visitors should win this one fairly comfortable as they are always in a match due to their tail which has been a theme in both white and red ball cricket this season. This one should be an away victory.
