County Cricket is back in action amidst the T20 Blast and Ashes action in the English circuit. Hampshire are currently caught up in the middle of the points table with mixed results and will be looking for crucial points in this match which can boost them to the second place in the points table. Middlesex are struggling currently and come off back-to-back losses before this match. They will look to end their bad time with some crucial win in this match. We expect a cracking contest between two teams that are in dire need of the points.
Hampshire were bowled out for 142 & 371 in the last game and lost by 6 wickets. Their top order trio of Fletcha Middleton (77 runs), Gubbins (62 runs), and James Vince (87 runs) set the platform in the second innings with their vital cameos. Their first innings came back to bit them big time as they gave opposition a target of just 140 runs in fourth innings.
Their bowlers gave the opposition 374 & 142/4 in the two innings in the last game. Felis Organ was the pick of the bowlers as he took 6/67 in the first innings. Pace trio of Keith Barker, Kyle Abbott and Mohammed Abbas will look to up their game in this match. Mason Crane and Liam Dawson to take control of the spin department.

Josh Simpson (57 runs) and Mark Stoneman (60 runs) were the only players to make a substantial score in the last game. Their batters need to step up as unit to help their team post a big score in this match.

Southampton will have bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain or any other weather interruptions in this match.
Southampton will have a true surface with good bounce and carry and we expect the batters to enjoy playing on this surface. We expect the average scores to be around 300-350 runs in this match.
We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss as the pitch will be good to bat early on. Chasing becomes tough in the fourth innings especially.
Hampshire has a strong batting line-up with quality batters who can take the game away from opposition easily. Middlesex too have a good batting line-up but are struggling for consistency in this season so far. Hampshire has a better bowling attack of the two owing to their recent form in the league. We expect Hampshire to continue their winning streak with a win in this match too.
Hampshire will win the match.
