THE TEAM NEWS

GLAMORGAN

  • Glamorgan have just one more game to endure in this year’s t20 Blast and they will hope they can finally end their drought but face a tough test against a Hampshire side who are chasing a spot in the quarter-finals.
  • With eight losses to their name so far, Glamorgan have the worst record of any team in the competition with their latest defeat a seven-wicket loss to Sussex Sharks despite some solid individual performances.
  • In their final squad of this year’s tournament, Tom Cullen could come into contention after he was called-up in place of Dan Douthwaite who has picked up an injury whilst they will continue to blood players from their pathway programme.

HAMPSHIRE

  • Hampshire picked up a vital victory over Middlesex with that win over another side chasing a spot in the quarter-finals keeping them right in the hunt for a spot in the last eight but they need to win this final game to stand a chance.
  • Heading into their final game as the side in fifth place because of an inferior run rate to Somerset, Hampshire need a win and hope other results go their way but they will be confident after going unbeaten in their last three games.
  • James Vince once again produced a brilliant display as the Hampshire skipper notched an unbeaten 66 to guide his side to the eight-wicket win and he will be the key man as his side face Glamorgan in this must-win game.

THE PREDICTION

Hampshire need to win their final game of the group stage and hope other results go their way if they are to make the knockout stages of the t20 Blast. They head to Glamorgan in a game they cannot afford to be complacent with the home side failing to win a single game in this year’s competition. They showed signs of improvement in their last game but it was still not enough for a win and although they could put in another decent performance, Hampshire have too much at stake to slip up now.
