It is rather surprising that Surrey is yet to register a single win in this season while Hampshire are up and running away with three points in their kitty. However, it is unfortunate for Surrey to draw a winning game and lost one to rain.
Surrey will look to put an end to their winless run when they take on in-form Hampshire in the upcoming fixture. The English T20 Blast 2020 Surrey vs Hampshire match will be played at the Kennington Oval, London. In the previous match, Hampshire managed to clinch two points with a 5-wicket win over Essex. On the other hand, Surrey lost to Kent by five wickets.
Surrey will once again rely on Hashim Amla and Rory Burns alongside the young batting lineup while Hampshire has got the boost of Shaheen Afridi for this fixture. All in all, a thriller is at the store for the fans tonight at Oval ground.
Hampshire has named Shaheen Afridi for this game while Surrey has recalled Jamie Overton.
Hashim Amla, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Ben Foakes (wk), Rory Burns, Scott Borthwick, Gus Atkinson, Gareth Batty (c), Daniel Moriarty, Matt Dunn/Jamie Overton, Reece Topley
Oval ground has always witnessed a good contest between the bat and ball. It is expected to be same in the upcoming game as well. Initially, fast bowlers will have assistance while spinners come into play as the game progress. Batsman need to be careful with their shot-making, as pitch might offer extra bounce at times.
Amla has showed his class in the previous game and will look to better in this game. He has got exceptional stats at this venue not only while playing for Surrey but also when he played for South Africa, across the formats.
The star international player from Pakistan is all set to make his debut in this season for Hampshire. He has been exceptional for Pakistan and in PSL in the last couple of seasons and expected to make an impact here as well. Stats suggest him a match-winner.
Fuller is a surprise package in this season. He has been bowling well and also scoring useful runs in the middle-order. Thus, we chose him as our must-have for this game.
He has been terrific for his side over the years but unfortunately, he is failing to deliver in this tournament. However, Evans has got the caliber to make things fall in place on his day.
Stats and team combination didn’t work in the favour of Will Jacks for us, which is why we had to leave him for this game. However, he performed in the last season but we aren’t risking with him today.
