Match Details

Hampshire versus Lancashire, second Semi-Final, Royal London One-Day Cup

May twelfth 2019, 4:00 PM IST

The Rose Bowl, Southampton


The Rose Bowl in Southampton will play host to the second semi-last of this Royal One-Day Cup. The pitch here has been a batting heaven of sorts with the normal first innings score being 320. In any case, notwithstanding the batting-accommodating conditions just once has a group won pursuing at this scene this season and that too when the objective was under 300. Subsequently, passing by history, groups should need to bat first. Another purpose behind that choice could be the weight of a major event.


Both Hampshire and Lancashire have been in some great structure in this competition. Hampshire have won seven out of the eight diversions which helped them qualify as the top group in the South Group. It put them legitimately in the semi-last. In the mean time, Lancashire needed to experience the crush of the quarter-last before achieving this stage. Indeed, even they have won six out of their last seven diversions.

Hampshire however have lost a key player in Aiden Markram who has flown back to South Africa as he is picked in their World Cup squad. He was their most astounding run-getter and the others have to venture up in his nonappearance. There are no such worries for Lancashire however.

Last match's Playing XI and potential changes

Hampshire – Tom Alsop (wk), Aneurin Donald, Aiden Markram, Rilee Rossouw, James Fuller, Liam Dawson, Sam Northeast (c), Fidel Edwards, Gareth Berg, Kyle Abbott, Mason Crane

Potential Changes – Aiden Markram has returned home to get ready for the up and coming World Cup. James Vince may play instead of Markram on the off chance that he doesn't make it to the England XI for the second ODI against Pakistan and he is consequently discharged. Else, Joe Weatherley may supplant the South African.

Lancashire – Keaton Jennings, Liam Livingstone, Steven Croft, Jake Lehmann, Dane Vilas (c and wk), Josh Bohannon, Rob Jones, Saqib Mahmood, Graham Onions, James Anderson, Matthew Parkinson

Potential Changes – Lancashire may go in with an unaltered XI.

My Dream XI for the diversion


Dane Vilas has been a score above most other wicket-guardians in this competition, both with the bat and with the gloves. He's collected 424 keeps running at a normal of 70.66 and a strike-rate of 118.76. He's taken 14 gets as of now.


After the hundred in the primary round of this competition, Sam Northeast appeared to have blurred away. Nonetheless, he did well in the last diversion and scored a well-aggregated 50 years. Aneurin Donald has looked great in the last couple of diversions. Opening the batting, he was one of the three half-centurions in the Hampshire batting line-up. In any case, it was Donald who set the tone at the top.

Keaton Jennings has been in phenomenal structure in the last couple of recreations. He has two 80+ scores in the last three innings and has looked generally amazing. He will be key for Lancashire in the semis also. Jack Lehmann has come in and mixed well. The Australian left-hander has looked great in the three recreations he's played.


Liam Dawson has been in astonishing structure with both bat and ball this season. He's scoring runs, grabbing wickets and it appears as though he can't take the blame no matter what this season. Then, Steven Croft has been Lancashire's best batsman in this competition. He has reliably got runs and has been a trustworthy player for Lancashire at No. 3.


Kyle Abbott has been superb for Hampshire this season. The South African-brought into the world quick bowler has looked in generally excellent musicality and has grabbed 20 wickets in eight innings. He has a normal and a strike-rate of 18.90 and 19.7 individually. Bricklayer Crane has been a touch costly however has progressed admirably, grabbing 11 wickets in 7 innings so far in this competition. Saqib Mahmood has been a standout amongst the best bowlers in this competition. He's grabbed 25 wickets at a normal of 18.88. Then, Matthew Parkinson is the main other Lancashire bowler who has gotten in excess of 10 wickets this season.

Elective: Graham Onions for Parkinson

Skipper: Liam Dawson

Bad habit skipper: Steven Croft

Player to look out for: Liam Dawson

Liam Dawson is an England universal and has played each of the three configurations of the diversion. Despite the fact that he hasn't played a great deal of global cricket (just 12 universal diversions), Dawson has been one of the reliable entertainers in the England local circuit. The 29-year-old every single rounder ha been splendid this season. He has scored 246 keeps running at a normal of 49.20 and a strike-rate of 106.49. With the ball, he has taken 17 wickets and has a standout amongst the best economy-rates in this competition (4.01).
