Virtual Cricket: County Championship Fantasy Cricket Tips and Match Predictions - Surrey v Hampshire
Round 10 of the Virtual County Championship between Surrey 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.
Surrey are slotted at the 8th spot in the Virtual County Championship Divison 1 leaderboard with 3 wins and 5 losses. The side has 84 points from 8 matches.
They will face Hampshire who are placed at the bottom of the pile. Hampshire have 1 win and 6 losses. The team has added 57 points from 8 games.
Hampshire suffered a 154-run defeat against Gloucestershire in their last match. The embarrassing thing for the side was that they were bowled out - for 184 and 276 - in both their innings but their bowlers weren't able to bowl out the opposition on either occasion.
James Vince was the top scorer for the team in the first innings with 70 while Riley Rossouw missed his century by seven runs. In the second innings, Ryan Stevenson picked up three wickets for the side in the first things while Taylor stepped it up with 3/83 in the first innings.
In their last match, Surrey were on shaky footing towards the beginning of their first innings despite some sort of face saving by Liam Plunkett's 67. The team posted 208 but was still behind the eight ball.
Surrey's fears came true when they were skittled out for 169 in their 2nd innings with Rikki Clarke top scoring with 45. Nicholas Kimber did try all he could with match figures of 8/81 but he did not find the required support as the team lost by 59 runs.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Hampshire - Joe Weatherley, James Vince, Felix Organ, Sam Northeast, Rilee Rossouw, Liam Dawson, Tom Alsop, James Fuller, Keith Barker, Kyle Abbott, Ryan Stevenson
Surrey - Rory Burns, Mark Stoneman, Hashim Amla, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Rikki Clarke, Sam Curran, Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, Morne Morkel
