HAM vs MID Dream11 Grand League Teams | Middlesex vs Hampshire English T20 Blast

The two South Group sides will face off this time around again in what will be another enthralling match of the English T20 Blast. Middlesex is at present at number 3 in the table and has won 6 of their 10 matches. On the other hand, Hampshire is at number 6 in the table and have won 3 of their 10 games. With only 3 wins from their 10 games, Hampshire has put themselves in a do-or-die state of affairs, which actually means Hampshire have to win all their remaining 4 matches. Middlesex will need to win only two of the remaining four to seal their spot in the quarter-final. Both the teams will look to capitalize on a win as the season will soon come to its conclusion. Let us look at what could become the HAM vs MID Dream11.

Match details:
22/08 – 10:45 PM IST
South Group (N), Vitality Blast at Lord’s, Aug 22, 2019

Head to Head (last five matches)

HAM won: 3
MID won: 2
Draw: 1

Team news:

  • Mohammad Hafeez is all set to play his debut game of the season.
  • There could be few changes in both the squads.
  • AB de Villiers still is on his break from the game.

Weather Condition/Report:
Clear weather is predictable for the match at the Lord’s. The weather forecast suggested no chances of rain and a complete 40-over game is anticipated.

Pitch Condition/Report:
The one-day matches and the Test matches that Lord’s hosted in 2019 have all been on the slower tracks. However, it has been a different scenario all in all in the T20 Blast at this venue. The season began with a relaxed 160+ chase while the sides batting first scored 200+ in the earlier two matches. The team winning the toss would look to bat first and post 180+ at least. It could be sufficient to preserve with the pitch gets slower towards the end of the match.
