Match abandoned without a ball bowled

Rain Thwarts Hampshire's Bid To Bounce Back

Hampshire's trip to Hove to take on Sussex Sharks was a washout with wet weather preventing a ball being bowled

Hampshire picked up one point as their Vitality Blast clash against Sussex Sharks was abandoned without a ball bowled at Hove.

James Vince's side will have been hoping to put in a good performance and bounce back after a dissapointing loss to Middlesex on Thursday, but the wet weather prevented any play on Sunday, with the umpires calling off proceedings shortly after 3:30pm.

It’s been a very frustrating day. With the situation we’re in we need as many points as we can get.

We’re not mathematically out of it but we need to start winning and to get on a roll with wins against Somerset away on Wednesday and at home against Kent on Friday. We have to stay positive though and everyone is beating everyone at the moment so it’s anyone’s guess who will make it into the top four.

Craig White, Head Coach
