Probable Playing XIs

Kent

Jordan Cox (WK), Daniel Bell Drummond (C), Alex Blake, Heino Kuhn, Joe Denly, Darren Stevens, Grant Stewart, Mohammad Amir, Qais Ahmad, Miguel Cummins, Imran Qayyum

Hampshire

Tom Alsop (WK), James Vince (C), Sam Northeast, Joe Weatherley, Liam Dawson, Ian Holland, Chris Wood, Ryan Stevenson, Kyle Abbott, Brad Taylor, Mason Crane

Captaincy Picks

James Vince

James Vince has a plethora of experience in the T20 format, and he surely will be critical to Hampshire’s success in the tournament. Vince likes to stay at the crease for long, and his ability to launch big shots at will makes him an absolute headache for the opposition captain. Notably, he was the second-highest run-scorer in Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21, with 537 runs in 16 outings.

Liam Dawson

Vince’s teammate Liam Dawson can also hurt Hampshire in the upcoming fixture. Coming to bat in the middle order, the dasher can take the game away from the opposition in no time. Moreover, his left-arm spins have also troubled several T20 stars.
