T20 Blast 2020: Sussex Sharks vs Hampshire – Dream 11, Fantasy Tips
In their first game of this tournament, openers Phil Salt and captain Luke Wright, the two most run-scorers for this team in the previous T20 Blast season, provided the solid start. While the skipper Wright scored 31 runs off 25 balls (6 fours), Salt scored 40 runs off 22 balls (4 fours and 2 sixes). They have also the experienced all-rounder Ravi Bopara, who scored one run in their rain-interrupted incomplete opening match in this new T20 season.
Right-arm pacer Ollie Robinson and T20 specialist left-arm fast bowler Tymal Mills are their main bowlers in the present bowling line-up.
While Hampshire luckily escaped from a defeat in their season-opening match (against Kent) due to the rain, the middle-order batsman Joe Weatherly was the only positive name as he scored the crucial 68 runs off 49 balls (6 fours and 2 sixes) when his team was struggling. Wicket-keeper batsman Lewis McManus also played an important knock of 26 runs in that game but lost his wicket at the crucial moment.
Captain Sam Northeast and Scottish opener Goerge Munsey are the other important names in the batting line-up.
Chris Wood and Mason Crane are the important bowlers of this side.
