Middlesex 199-8 (Stevie Eskinazi 43; Reece Topley 4-40)
Hampshire 200-5 (James Vince 56; Steve Finn 2-42)
Result Hampshire won by 5 wickets
None of the Middlesex batsmen really got going and their total of 199-8 reflected that. Some tight bowling by Reece Topley (4-40) made their task more difficult.
In the run chase, a battling 56 from Skipper, James Vince, supported by Jimmy Adams 33* and Lewis McManus 30*,at the end ,helped Hampshire to a 5 wicket win over Middlesex.
