Virtual Cricket: County Championship Fantasy Cricket Tips and Match Predictions - Hampshire v Lancashire

©Cricket World / John Mallett

Round seven of the Virtual County Championship between Hampshire and Lancashire 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.

Hampshire would have to work hard to turn things around from here on. They have just one win and four losses from their five matches and are level on points with the bottom-placed Kent with 39 points.

The team will lock horns against Lancashire who are doing quite well with three wins and two losses from five matches. Lancashire are placed at the third spot with 74 points.

The team took away 22 points from their round 6 match against Somerset. If things had gone normally, Lancashire should have never won the match after falling behind so much in the first innings.

They were reeling at 118 for 9 with 140 runs still to get and the match looked all but over for them. But James Anderson stuck around with Graham Onions, who scored a remarkable unbeaten century, to take the home by one wicket.

Their opponents, Hampshire were not that fortunate as they lost their last game by 55 runs. Liam Dawson scored a decent half-century in their first innings and James Fuller was unbeaten on 137 in the second essay.

Despite good contributions from Fuller and Dawson with the ball as well, they did not receive any support from their fellow players and lost the game by 55 runs.

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

Lancashire - Keaton Jennings, Liam Livingstone, Brooke Guest, BJ Watling, Rob Jones, Dane Vilas, Jos Buttler, Tom Bailey, Saqib Mahmood, Graham Onions, James Anderson

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