Surrey is the only team in the South Group which is yet to register a win in the Bob Wills Trophy. Hampshire who is their opponents on Saturday is coming back on a close victory against Middlesex. The batsmen from both the teams has struggled to score big which has been the reason for their losses. But all-rounders from both the sides are in red hot form and are the hot picks of the match. Coming back to the contest between the two sides, Surrey needs to win in order to stay alive in the competition and Hampshire, on the other hand, is eager to take inspiration from a close victory.

He is the first player to be on the fantasy team given his track record, as well as his recent form. His consistency with the ball is going to be handy in these conditions. He has a PPM of 91 and an MDTA of 1.37 in the last 63 first-class games.
He is the most consistent player for Surrey for some time now and it shows in his performance in this season. His track record of PPM of 92 from 65 matches makes him an irresistible choice.
He is going through some impressive form off late. More than with the ball he has become one of the prolific run scores for Hampshire. He has a PPM of 108 and MDTA of 1 in the last five first-class games.
He used to be one of the most consistent performers around the county circuit. In the last few seasons, his consistency has dipped a bit but whenever he had performed he has made an impact just like the first game of the season. He can be tried as a captain option in Grand league team.
