The next south group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Hampshire and Essex at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.
Essex are placed at sixth spot in the south group points table of the Vitality Blast T20 2019. The team has won three of its 11 matches. They have also been unfortunate as four of their games have been washed out. The team has 10 points and a net run rate of +0.450.
Hampshire are just below them with four wins and five losses from 11 games. They have two abandoned matches as a result of which they have 10 points and net run rate of +0.041.
Essex's standing in the season was improved by their win over Sussex in the last game, courtesy of a four-wicket haul from Mohammad Amir. Essex had earlier posted 169 on the back of knocks from Tom Westley, Daniel Lawrence and Ravi Bopara.
Hampshire's last match was against Middlesex which they won by seven wickets. Both South African quicks Kyle Abbott and Chris Morris not only bowled with a great economy rate but picked up three wickets each to restrict Middlesex to 128.
Fluent knocks from skipper James Vince and Liam Dawson then ensured that the team chased the total down with more than five overs remaining .
