Following back-to-back home fixtures, Hampshire Hawks go on a West Country road trip, stopping off in Taunton first before heading up to Bristol as they take on Somerset and Gloucestershire.

Somerset defeated the Hawks first time round at The Ageas Bowl but lost out to South Group leaders Surrey off the final ball at The Oval in their most recent outing.

Gloucestershire meanwhile are currently in third place on 12 points after a five-run victory against the reigning champions Kent, with the Hawks yet to face the 'Shire in the Vitality Blast this year.

The Hawks have named the same 15-player squad as in the previous fixture against Surrey.

James Fuller put in an all-round performance in the defeat against Surrey last time out – scoring 39* with the bat and recording figures of 2-31 with the ball.

Mason Crane and Liam Dawson also took two wickets each, while James Vince (30) and Joe Weatherley (29) added some more runs to their tallies.
