Cricket World Dice Cricket Virtual County Championship 2020: All you need to know
After a great campaign last year, Somerset have started off this year's virtual County Championship well with a win and a loss from their two matches. The team has 28 points and is placed at the second spot in the virtual County Championship. They registered a 3-wicket win in their last match to earn the valuable points.
Hampshire have only played one match till now and suffered a defeat in that game by virtue of which they have just five points. The team came up against Kent in round 2 and fought well but conceded a two-wicket defeat.
Somerset have experienced international batsmen in Babar Azam and Matthew Wade but that should not take the spotlight away from a young talent like Tom Banton, who is also expected to make a substantial contribution in this game.
Somerset are fortunate to have signed somebody like Vernon Philander who is a master when it comes to swing bowling and will present some tough questions to the Hampshire batsmen. Craig Overton is another bowler who has had some success for Somerset.
Hampshire would expect James Vince, Sam Northeast and Rilee Rossouw to do the bulk of the scoring.
Like Somerset, Hampshire also have a couple of great bowlers in their ranks. In Nathan Lyon, Kyle Abbott and Fidel Edwards, the team has enough experience and skill to make it tough for Somerset to score freely.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Somerset - James Hildreth, Babar Azam, Tom Banton, Tom Abell, Matthew Wade, Steven Davies, George Bartlett, Lewis Gregory, Craig Overton, Dominic Bess, Vernon Philander
Hampshire - Joe Weatherley, James Vince, Felix Organ, Sam Northeast, Rilee Rossouw, Liam Dawson, Tom Alsop, Nathan Lyon, Keith Barker, Kyle Abbott, Fidel Edwards
