Hampshire is about to begin its Vitality T20 Blast 2019 campaign against Sussex. These are two strong teams facing each other early in the campaign and it is definitely one of the game to look forward to on opening weekend.
Hampshire has a very disappointing T20 Blast in 2018 and was only able to win two matches in the entire season. This, after having some of the most desirable players in its side. We are sure that Hampshire is going to be hungry for success and hope to leave a mark in what could be the last season of the T20 Blast as we know it.
Sussex finished third in the group stage and then managed to make it all the way to the final before losing to Worcestershire. Sussex will definitely rue that missed opportunity because it had the squad capable of winning.
Most of the people from that squad are still with Sussex and so a deep run can be expected from them in Vitality T20 Blast 2019 as well.
Hampshire vs Sussex Vitality T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at Country Ground, Southampton on the 19th of July.
A look at the Hampshire squad will surprise most cricket supporters. They have players like Rilee Rossow, James Vince, Aneurin Donald, and Sam Northeast in their batting lineup. They also have Chris Morris as their overseas player this year and have Kyle Abbot as a Kolpak signing.
This is a very decent squad and should be returning better results than what they have been.
Cricket can be a funny game sometimes and getting into a rut of defeats can be difficult to break out of. We don’t think there is anything fundamentally wrong at Hampshire. They should be able to perform much better than they did in 2018.
Of course, starting well is going to be a big part of that.
James Vince was a part of the World Cup winning squad but he did not play too many matches so he should be available for selection. Sam Northeast has been on the fringes of the England team for quite some time and would want to showcase his utility in this format as well.
Hampshire can definitely match Sussex in terms of batting firepower.
The bowling is going to be led by Kyle Abbott and Mason Crane. The latter is a strange choice to us and looks like just getting on the wrist-spin bandwagon. If Crane and James Fuller can bow like they have the potential to then Hampshire should have a very well balanced squad thanks to Chris Morris contributing in both the batting and bowling departments.
Rilee Rossouw, Aneurin Donald, J Vince, Sam Northeast, LA Dawson, James Fuller, Chris Morris, Lewis McManus, CP Wood, KY Abbott, Mason Crane.
Sussex is going to be a bit relieved that Jofra Archer was named in the Ashes squad because that opens up the possibility of him being available later down the line. Even without Archer, though, Sussex has a formidable side.
The batting is going to be led by Alex Carey, Luke Wright, Phil Salt, David Wiese, and Stiaan van Zyl. Carey is coming off an excellent World Cup campaign where he was the third highest scorer for the Australian team.
Alex Carey has opened the inning for the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash league and he may get an opportunity to do the same in the Vitality T20 blast 2019 as well. Luke Wright may not be the force he was a couple of years ago but is still an excellent player to have on your side.
We really like the Sussex batting order which is going to be complemented by some good all-rounders lower down as well.
The real strength for Sussex is its bowling. Rashid Khan, Tymal Mills, and Chris Jordan are a T20 bowling superteam of sorts. Rashid Khan excels in this format particularly at the death while Chris Jordan can bowl pinpoint yorkers on demand. Tymal Mills brings the heat upfront and is going to make life difficult for the batsmen.
Sussex has put together an excellent side that is going to test out each and every opponent it faces.
Philip Salt, LJ Wright, Laurie Evans, Delray Rawlins, D Wiese, Ben Brown, Rashid Khan, Ollie Robinson, Danny Briggs, TS Mills, R Topley.
The team winning the toss is going to want to field first. The rain arund makes captains nervous and they prefer to be the chasing side if any DLS calculoations come into play.

Hampshire vs Sussex Vitality T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at County Ground, Southampton. There are chances of rain in Southampton on match day and we will have to wait to see whether we get any cricket at all. A steady sort of drizzle could end up jeopardizing the match.
If the match does get played then the ground conditions may actually end up suiting Sussex more than Hampshire. The boundaries are big which will suit their bowlers and there may be some help for the fast bowlers as well.
Dream11 prediction for Hampshire vs Sussex is going to be a bit bowling heavy looking at the wonderful options available in this match. We also don't think that Jofra Archer is going to be available in this match and so have not included him in the side.
Wicketkeeper: Alex Carey is the clear choice here. He is an excellent addition to the Sussex Sharks. He is in good form, scored plenty of runs in the World Cup, and made his name as a T20 batsman.
Batsmen: We have picked Aiden Markram, Aneurin Donald and Phil Salt in our side. These are a bit unconventional choices especially when James VinceRilee Rossow, Luke Wright, and Sam Northeast are also available. We like Markram and just don't think he can go for too long without scoring runs while the other two are season T20 players that will give our Dream11 team an edge.
All-rounders: Liam Dawson may not have done anything in the World Cup but he is a superstar in the Vitality T20 Blast. He bats in the top-order and bowls his quota regularly. Chris Morris is another high-quality all-rounder that we love in our team.
Bowlers: Rashid Khan, Chris Jordan, Fidel Edwards, Kyle Abbott, and Reece Topley are the five bowlers we have picked. There is just so much international talent and T20 skill available that picking less than this seemed a mistake.
Captain and Vice-Captain: We have chosen Liam Dawson as captain and Alex Carey as vice-captain for our Dream11 picks for Hampshire vs Sussex Vitality T20 Blast 2019.
