When and where:
After notching up an impressive win in their tournament opener against Kent, Sussex will be looking to continue with the winning momentum when they take on Hampshire in the Royal London Cup 2018, at Brighton on May 19, 2018.
Hampshire has had the better of Sussex in the past, having won four of the last five encounters, with the last match getting abandoned due to rain.
So, let’s move forwards to HAM vs SUS team news and HAM vs SUS dream11 prediction.
Hampshire has named a 15-member squad for their tournament’s curtain-raiser against Sussex Sharks. James Vince, who is having a great county season thus far, will lead the team. Hashim Amla, the current highest run-scorer in the 2018 County Championship will be a key member of the Vince led side. Left-arm spinner Reece Topley along with young leggie Mason Crane will also feature for the side. Sam Northeast and Liam Dawson remain unavailable for selection after both suffered finger injuries in the first round of the four-day action this season, and Kyle Abbott is still recovering from ankle injury.
Sussex will be looking to field the same playing eleven that won against Kent. The hosts have named an unchanged squad as former Hampshire spinner Danny Briggs gets set to face his former side once again. Stann van Zyl (injury) and Joffra Archer (IPL) are the players missing from an otherwise full-strength team.
