THE PREDICTION

Essex Eagles moved above Hampshire and off the bottom of the South Group table, after upsetting Sussex Sharks at Hove on Monday. They hold a slim chance of knockout qualification, but must beat Hampshire here, who are coming off the back of a comprehensive eight wicket defeat by Kent Spitfires. The Eagles top order have finally clicked in this competition with their last two scores batting first both above 190. If they can hit a similar total in this match batting first, or bowl first and reduce the hosts to around 160 at best, then they should come out on top here against a Hampshire side low on confidence having lost their last four Vitality Blast games.
