Match Predictions and Team Previews
Hampshire and Surrey last met in a Vitality Blast match on 18 September 2020 at Southampton. In that game, Hampshire batted first and lost two early wickets to be reduced to 11 for 2 in the 2nd over. After a mini recovery via a stand of 32 runs, they were further hampered by the loss of 2 more wickets before James Fuller got into the rescue act with Ian Holland in a 75-run partnership for the 5th wicket. But from a position of relative comfort at 125 for 5 in 17.2 overs, the innings unraveled to leave Hampshire at 138/8 at the end of their innings. Barring Ian Holland (65 from 51 balls), James Vince (27 from 22), and James Fuller (19 from 20), no other batsman got into double figures. For Surrey, Reece Topley took the most wickets with figures of 4/20, while Moriarty (2/19), Overton (1/29) and Jacks (1/22) were the other wicket takers.
When Surrey replied, they did not have the best start, losing Roy’s wicket with only 25 runs on the board. But it proved to be a minor hiccup as Will Jacks and Laurie Evans got together in a 188-run stand to take their team home with nearly 5 overs to spare. While Jacks made 56 from 35 balls, Evans scored 81 from 46. For Hampshire, Felix Organ was the only wicket taker.
