Hampshire vs Yorkshire 2nd Semi Final match Preview
The Vikings have made it through to the semi-finals of the Royal London one-day Cup, beating Essex at Chelmsford on Thursday without six players on either England ODI or India Test Match duty.
And they will have to do it again for Monday’s semi against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl, although Che Pujara is set to return for the match after India beat Afghanistan inside two days in the Bangalore Test.
Hampshire are just one win away from securing a place in the Royal London One-Day Cup Final as Yorkshire visit the Ageas Bowl for the competition’s semi-final stages on Monday.
James Vince’s side finished top of the South Group to secure a home draw in the final four and a win would ensure a place in the Lord’s Final for the first time since 2012.
When: June 18, 03:30 PM IST
Venue: The Rose Bowl, Southampton
