Up next is a match between Nottinghamshire and Hampshire. The teams will square off in a County Championship Division One game played at The John Fretwell Sporting Complex in Nettleworth.

Hampshire are at the second spot in the Division One points table with three wins and one loss from five matches. They have also drawn one match and are with 81 points. 

Nottinghamshire, on the other hand, are struggling at the bottom of the points table with three losses from five matches. They have drawn their other two games and have been able to accumulate just 29 points. 

Chris Nash is the top run-scorer for Nottinghamshire with 392 runs from five matches at an average of almost 40. He has scored four half-centuries and is a ray of hope among the struggling Nottinghamshire batsmen. Luke Fletcher has been the best bowler for the team, with 19 wickets from eight innings at an average of a shade over 20.

Sam Northeast has been the best batsman for Hampshire with 575 runs from five matches at an average of over 70. He has two centuries and three half-centuries against his name. Just below him is Tom Alsop who has featured in only seven innings but has managed 276 runs at an average of over 55.

It is heartening to see that Fidel Edwards is still around and is going strong for Hampshire with 26 wickets from five matches at an average of close to 18.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Nottinghamshire- Ben Slater, Ben Duckett, Chris Nash, Joe Clarke, Samit Patel, Steven Mullaney, Tom Moores, Luke Fletcher, Stuart Broad, James Pattinson, Matthew Carter

Hampshire- Joe Weatherley, Oliver Soames, Ajinkya Rahane, Sam Northeast, Tom Alsop, Rilee Rossouw, Ian Holland, James Fuller, Fidel Edwards, Mason Crane, Kyle Abbott
