Alastair Cook will be seen in action in white-ball cricket again.
On the opening day of the Royal London One-Day Cup 2021, Hampshire will be hosting the Essex team. The two teams have some stars missing but despite that, some of the players available in both the teams can boost their credentials and can produce some good cricketing action.
Talking about the last time these two teams played in the competition, Hampshire had a great run and entered the final, where they unfortunately lost to the spirited Somerset side. Essex, on the other hand, had played eight games, winning only two of them.
Hampshire vs Essex, Group A
Venue: The Rose Bowl, Southampton
Date & Time: July 22nd at 3:30 PM IST and 11:00 AM local time

The wicket in Southampton is generally good for batting. The longer boundaries can be a benefit for the bowlers as the big sixes and easy fours can’t be scored at will here. We can expect an even battle between the bat and the ball.
