Full Fixture Information

The full schedule for the 2023 LV= Insurance County Championship was announced today, with the 50-over competition set to take place in August alongside The Hundred again this year. A youthful Hampshire side, led by Nick Gubbins, made it to the semi-final during the 2022 season.

With eight group games to come next August, we have taken a look at which teams Hampshire will face off against.

Middlesex: Tuesday 1 August (H)

To kick off the 2023 One Day Cup, Hampshire will host Middlesex at The Ageas Bowl for the first time since 2019.

In that most recent meeting, Hampshire batted first and scored a respectable 301/9, with the South African duo of Aiden Markram and Rilee Rossouw both making half centurires.

Markram was again useful with the ball, taking figures of 3-39, along with another South African Kyle Abbott and Liam Dawson who both also picked up three wickets. Middlesex were bowled out for 182.

Essex Eagles: Tuesday 8 August (H)

Hampshire have played against Essex more than any other opponent in List A competitions, with the two meeting on 72 occasions.

As with last season, Hampshire welcome the Eagles to The Ageas Bowl and will be looking for a repeat performance.

Five of the six Hampshire bowlers found wickets as Essex finished their 50 overs with 257/8, before Tom Prest’s 76 inspired the home side to a three-wicket win.

Nottinghamshire Outlaws: Friday 11 August (A)

Nottinghamshire and Hampshire haven’t met in a List A contest since 2015 and even that match finished with no result in the first innings due to bad weather.

Overall, they have met 51 times with Hampshire winning 28 of them.

This will be Hampshire’s first away game of the 2023 season and will also be the first time they have ever played at Welbeck.

Leicestershire Foxes: Sunday 13 August (H)

Another side that Hampshire did not play in 2022 is Leicestershire and the Foxes are the third and final team that will be making the trip to The Ageas Bowl.

The last match to be played between the two came back in 2014 where the Foxes won via Duckworth/Lewis method.

This year meeting will be the 48th meeting between the two in List A cricket.

Lancashire: Tuesday 15 August (A)

Hampshire’s second away game of the One Day Cup will be against Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford.

Their meeting in the group stage last year was a memorable one, especially for John Turner. The young bowler took a maiden List A five-wicket haul, with figures of 5-25 from nine overs as Lancashire were bowled out for 183 at The Ageas Bowl.

Though the Hampshire batting line-up seemed to be heading for a similar fate, Toby Albert steadied the ship with a match winning innings of 65 to see his side home, with Turner the other not out batter.

Yorkshire Vikings: Thursday 17 August (A)

Another side that Hampshire met in last season’s group stage was Yorkshire and they will face off in York in 2023.

In the final group match in 2022, the two met at Scarborough and, batting first, Hampshire scored 313/9. Tom Prest and Ben Brown hit half centuries, while Aneurin Donald scored a quickfire 76 from just 31 balls – including six sixes.

With the ball, Turner was again decisive, picking up his second five-wicket haul of the competition as the Vikings could only reach 241.

Surrey: Sunday 20 August (A)

Surrey struggled in 50 over cricket in 2022, winning just two of their eight games and failing to make it out of the group.

They will be hoping for a better showing in 2023 and will take on Hampshire for the first time since 2019.

In that last encounter, Liam Dawson’s ton was crucial in giving Hampshire a well earned 53 run win at the Kia Oval.

Kent Spitfires: Tuesday 22 August (Newclose, IOW)

In 2022, Hampshire made a return to Newclose on the Isle of Wight to play their first game there since 2019. It was a successful trip and ended with a dramatic win over Northamptonshire.

They will be back at Newclose again this year, and will be welcoming the current champions Kent Spitfires, who they met twice in last season’s competition.

During the first game, skipper Nick Gubbins’ 117 and Tom Prest’s career best of 181 guided Hampshire to a relatively simple win. Jack Campbell also took four wickets.

However, when they met at The Ageas Bowl in the semi-final, 46-year-old Darren Stevens inspired the Spitfires to a three-wicket victory and a place in the final, where they would go on to lift the trophy.
