Vitality Blast Rewind: McDermott's Brutal Blitz In Quarter-Final

Ben McDermott hit 61 from 36 balls to help Hampshire to a large total at Edgbaston

With the 2022 season now firmly in the rear-view mirror we're taking a look back at some of the performances that caught the eye throughout the campaign.

Hampshire Hawks booked their place in Vitality Blast Finals Day with a 104-run win over Birmingham Bears. 

The Hawks were lifted to an imposing 186 for six by the clean hitting of Ben McDermott (61, 36 balls) and Joe Weatherley (47, 31).

Captain James Vince and McDermott got the Hawks off to a rapid start, McDermott's fourth six, hoisted over extra cover off former Hawks spinner Briggs, took him to 50 from 28 balls.

Vince and McDermott started the match strongly for Hampshire, with 93 coming in 53 balls. 

The Aussie ended with six fours and four sixes in another hal-century in a fantastic campaign for the hard-hitting opener.
