England v South Africa

NatWest IT20

Wednesday 21 June (6:30pm Start)

The Ageas Bowl will host the second fixture of the venue's 2017 International calendar this Wednedsay as the home of Hampshire Cricket plays host to a NatWest IT20 between England and South Africa.

Eoin Morgan's men will take to the field for the first time since their Champions Trophy exit last week, with a number of fresh faces included within the series' 16-man squad.

It’s fair to say the Ageas Bowl faithful will have everything crossed for when the men's teams are announced at 6:00pm on Tuesday. If selected, Hampshire's Mason Crane will make his full England debut in front of his home crowd and he could feature alongside =Hampshire teammate, Liam Dawson, who is also involved in the series.

The match will be the first time England have hosted South Africa in a 20-over fixture at the Ageas Bowl.

England Squad: 

Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Mason Crane, Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Craig Overton, Liam Plunkett, Jason Roy, David Willey, Mark Wood.
