T20 Vitality Blast, 2018
Middlesex vs Hampshire, South Group
As the caravan of the 2018 Vitality Blast rolls on, the two- bottom-placed sides in Middlesex and Hampshire will look to gain some much-needed momentum in what has been a lackluster campaign thus far.
After a string of four consecutive losses, Hampshire finally broke their poor run-of-form against Middlesex in their Vitality Blast fixture. Batting first, Hampshire rode on a belligerent 40-ball-63 from Colin Munro and a 22-ball-32 to post a competitive 184 in 19.5 overs.
Venue- Lord’s, London
Match Timings- Thursday, July 26, 2018, 10:45 PM IST
Chasing 185, Middlesex were never really in the game as they lost wickets at regular intervals. Apart from Max Holden (36) and Dwayne Bravo (38), no other batsmen could post a substantial contribution against an all-round bowling performance from Hampshire. Chris Wood and Munro picked two-wickets apiece as Middlesex eventually finished with 9-163; 22 runs adrift of the target.
With just a solitary win in five matches, both sides will look to notch up a victory in MID vs HAM in a bid to stay afloat in the tournament.
Lord’s is traditionally a high-scoring ground, and with a heatwave going across England, expect dry conditions that will aid slow bowlers. The average first innings score here is 155 which reduces to 135 while chasing, a testimony to the slowness of the surface.
