Round four of the Virtual County Championship between Hampshire and Yorkshire 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 are the second last team in virtual County Championship division one after three rounds of the competition. The team has lost both of its games and has only 10 points.

They suffered a defeat against Somerset in the last match by a close margin of 26 runs despite 90s from Tom Alsop and James Fuller in the first and the second innings respectively. Fuller's 93 runs in the second innings came on the back of his 5-wicket haul in the first essay.

Hampshire will take on Yorkshire who are placed at the third spot in the pile with two wins and one loss from 3 games. The team has 47 points and registered a 71-run victory in their last game against Surrey. Dawid Malan and Joe Root scored half-centuries from them while Tim Bresnan and Ben Coad were among the wickets.

In Sam Northeast, Rilee Rossouw and Liam Dawson, Hampshire have a decent middle order to do the job for them while Nathan Lyon, Kyle Abbott and Fidel Edwards are well placed to make it tough for the Yorkshire batsmen.

Yorkshire have a good opening combination in Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan with Gary Ballance, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow following. The spin of Ravichandran Ashwin adds another dimension to the team alongside their pace bowling.

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

Yorkshire - Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan, Gary Ballance, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Tom Kohler Cadmore, Tim Bresnan, Matthew Waite, Steven Patterson, Ben Coad, Ravichandran Ashwin

Hampshire - Joe Weatherley, James Vince, Felix Organ, Sam Northeast, Rilee Rossouw, Liam Dawson, Tom Alsop, Nathan Lyon, James Fuller, Kyle Abbott, Fidel Edwards
