James Vince has been named Hampshire’s new one-day captain.

The 24 year old will now skipper the side in both the Royal London One-Day Cup and NatWest T20 Blast competitions.

He will captain Hampshire for the first time in 50-over cricket when the Sussex Sharks are the visitors to the Ageas Bowl on Monday, July 27.

Vince said: ‘I had a taste of T20 captaincy last season and I really enjoyed leading the England Lions this winter so I’m pleased to get the opportunity to captain Hampshire in the Royal London One-Day Cup.’
