Match Details

The upcoming South Group match of the T20 Blast 2020 is all set to be played between Hampshire and Kent at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

This match is scheduled to start at 2:00 PM Local Time (6:30 PM IST).

Preview

After losing three consecutive matches, Hampshire will be keen to return to the winning ways, when they take on Kent on Monday. The two teams had met in Canterbury earlier in this season, but the match did not produce a result as rain played spoilsport. Hampshire’s last defeat was at the hands of Middlesex.

Kent were unbeaten in their first six games. However, Sussex handed them a thumping 8-wicket defeat two days ago. Nonetheless, they will be extremely confident heading into this fixture as they have not lost even a single match of their last five battles against Hampshire.

There are no chances of rain in Southampton on Monday. The temperature is expected to be around 25°C during the match time.
