ANALYST

The Hampshire Hawks will be up against the Essex Eagles in a South Group T20 Blast fixture at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on Friday.

The Hampshire Hawks will be extremely disappointed with their performances in the T20 Blast so far this season. But they will come into the game high on confidence after winning their last T20 Blast match against Somerset CCC by a massive 75-run margin. The Hawks have won only three out of their 11 T20 Blast matches and are currently placed in seventh spot in the South Group points table. They have to win all of their remaining three matches if they want to qualify for the quarter-finals. The Hawks will be buoyed by the return of their captain James Vince, who is coming fresh off his first international century against Pakistan. Hampshire will be looking forward to continuing their winning momentum in today's match at the Rose Bowl.

The Essex Eagles, on the other hand, have been a touch inconsistent in the T20 Blast this season and are currently placed just above their opponents in the South Group points table with five wins from their 12 matches. They lost their last game against the Sussex Sharks by seven wickets and will be looking forward to returning to winning ways today. This is a must-win game for them if they want to stay alive in the championship race. The Eagles will be bolstered by the return of their star all-rounder Dan Lawrence.

When the two teams met earlier this season in the T20 Blast, the Hawks registered a 13-run victory over the Eagles.

Date & Time: 16th July 2021, 06:30 PM IST

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Rose Bowl is overall a flat batting wicket. However, the pacers are expected to procure some initial swing with the new ball in hand. The spinners might also come into play as the game progresses. Batting first upon winning the toss could be a good choice as the wicket tends to slow down and it becomes difficult to bat on in the second innings. Anything around 180-190 should be a good first innings score at the venue.
