Hampshire v Yorkshire - Royal London One Day Cup Semi Final - Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction
Today is the Semi Final of the Royal London One Day Cup between Hampshire and Yorkshire at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.
This is going to be a cracker of a cup tie, between the two best batting squads in the competition. Whatever happens, there will be a lot of runs scored.
Let’s have a look at the match details and the squads
Hampshire (1st South Group) v Yorkshire
Date: Monday June 18
Time: 11.00 am
Venue: – Ageas Bowl, Southampton
Weather: It's overcast but dry at present – outlook similar.
Hampshire: Jimmy Adams (4), Lewis McManus (18), Chris Wood (25), Rilee Rossouw (30), Ian Holland (22), Joe Weatherley (5), Gareth Berg (13), Sam Northeast (17), James Vince (14) Captain, Liam Dawson (8), Ryan Stevenson (47), Reece Topley (6), Fidel Edwards (51), Dale Steyn (2)
TEAM NEWS: First XI coach Andrew Gale has added Cheteshwar Pujara, who is back in the UK, and Alex Lees to the squad which claimed a 25-run play-off win over Essex at Chelmsford.#YourYorkshire pic.twitter.com/qTFM9EQNQW— Yorkshire CCC (@YorkshireCCC) June 17, 2018
Sam Northeast is back for Hampshire after being out injured for a month, which will strengthen their batting line-up (if he plays). The batting for Hampshire is very strong anyway, with Vince, Rossouw, Adams and Weatherley all in good form.
For Yorkshire, Adam Lyth Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Gary Ballance, Jack Leaning and Tim Bresnan have been in good nick.
The result will probably depend on which side can keep the bowling tight enough to keep the pressure on the batsmen to make mistakes - Reece Topley, Fidel Edwards and Dale Steyn for Hampshire will be bowlers to watch here and for Yorkshire – Tim Bresnan and Skipper Steven Patterson, who had an outstanding game against Essex, in the previous match.
Jimmy Adams scored 91* the last time these two sides met in a List A match
Hampshire has won 3 of the last 4 List A matches against Yorkshire
