The South Group match of the T20 Blast 2020 will be played between Sussex and Hampshire at the County Ground in Hove.
The match is scheduled to start at 02:00 PM Local Time (06:30 PM IST) (01:00 PM GMT) and can be streamed live on FanCode.
A South Group encounter between Sussex and Hampshire will be played on Sunday. The previous games of both these teams ended up in a washout. Thus, at this stage, they have got one point each. In fact, none of the teams from the South Group has a win to their name till now. A game between Middlesex and Kent finished in a tie. Sussex and Hampshire are two of the top teams in the T20 Blast and will look to take an early lead.
Strong winds are expected and it will be a cold day in Hove. There will be a cloud cover throughout.
The pitch is quite good for batting. But with the cloud cover, the pacers might find some swing early on in the game.
Average first innings score: 172 (Based on the last 3 T20 Blast games at this venue played last year)
