Surrey to wim the match
In-form South Group leaders Surrey take on out-of-form, last-placed Hampshire in the 2020 Vitality T20 Blast. The match, at the Ageas Bowl, takes place on September 18 and the live action starts at 14:00 local time.
Thanks to Will Jacks’ all-round form, Surrey chased 166 to beat Sussex Sharks last time out for their fifth win in seven completed matches so far. They also have one tie and have not lost since the first of the month. When these teams last met, they won a rain-shortened match by nine wickets, with Jacks their key batsman then too.
Hampshire went into that game on the back of a five-wicket win against Essex Eagles but they have now lost five in a row since. Chasing 169 to beat Essex, Hampshire limped to just 114/9 last time out.

Surrey are in good form and can cement that with a win against struggling Hampshire in that game. Five defeats in a row since their only win so far paints the sorry picture of Hampshire’s campaign so far. They have struggled and Surrey can take full advantage to win.
