In T20 Blast south group, James Vince’s troops will face Essex Eagles, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Kent Spitfires, Middlesex, Somerset, Surrey, Sussex Sharks home and away.

Giles White. Hampshire director of cricket, said: ‘Our opening fixture against Glamorgan should be a great match-up as they’re a side full of explosive batsman.

‘Hopefully the weather is kind because it’s in a block, and we can hit the ground running to begin the competition.

‘We’ve got good pedigree in the T20 competition, so hopefully we can get off to a good start again in 2018 and kick on from there.’

T20 Blast Finals Day will take place on Saturday, 15 September 2018 at Edgbaston.
