Somerset v Hampshire – NatWest T20 Blast Preview

Hampshire travel to Taunton (17:00 start) looking to build on a promising start to this year’s NatWest T20 Blast.

Three wins plus one point gained following Sunday’s abandoned fixture against Surrey has helped propel Hampshire to third place after six matches.

The spin duo of former Pakistan international Shahid Afridi and England new boy Mason Crane has been key to Hampshire’s success in the early stages of the competition.

Afridi has taken six wickets at an average of 22.83, whilst fellow leg-spinner Crane has taken seven wickets at an even better average of 15.14.

The batting line-up has not fired consistently yet, but it is only a matter of time before the likes of James Vince, Rilee Rossouw and George Bailey produce a big score.

Two-time winners Hampshire will have high hopes of silverware this year following a surprise group-stage elimination in 2016, which arrived on the back of a record six successive finals day appearances.

Today’s clash sees Hampshire come up against a Somerset outfit looking to build on an impressive five-wicket victory over Middlesex last time out.

James Hildreth scored 63 from just 34 balls as Somerset registered their second win of the competition on Sunday.
