Round nine of the Virtual County Championship between Gloucestershire and Hampshire is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Gloucestershire are slotted at the 6th spot in the Virtual County Championship Divison 1 leaderboard with 4 wins and 3 losses. The side has 97 points from 7 matches.

They will compete against Hampshire who are placed at the 9th spot in the pile. Hampshire have 1 win and 5 losses. The team has added 54 points from 7 games.

Gloucestershire fought hard in the last match against Somerset but conceded a 17-run defeat. They bowled out Somerset for just 196 in their first innings on the back of a 3-wicket haul from Josh Shaw.

Shaw then struck 81 in the first innings and 56 in the second innings to take the team to a good position. But, despite a 5-wicket haul from George Drissell in the second innings, the team fell 17 runs short.

The distance between Hampshire and victory in their round 8 match against Warwickshire was of just two wickets. Hampshire were bowled out for 211 in their first innings on the back of 65 from Keith Barker.

Ryan Stevenson did well to restrict Warwickshire to 238, claiming figures of 3/41 but the team was skittled out for 179 despite an unbeaten 61 from Taylor. 6/82 from Stevenson in the second innings sealed the deal.

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

Gloucestershire - Miles Hammond, Chris Dent, James Bracey, George Hankins, Gareth Roderick, Benny Howell, Ryan Higgins, Graeme van Buuren, Josh Shaw, Jack Taylor, George Drissell

Hampshire - Joe Weatherley, James Vince, Felix Organ, Sam Northeast, Rilee Rossouw, Liam Dawson, Tom Alsop, James Fuller, Keith Barker, Kyle Abbott, Ryan Stevenson
