Hampshire take on Kent Spitfires at Newclose on the Isle of Wight for their final Metro Bank One Day Cup group match of the 2023 campaign.

The two sides met in last year’s semi-final where a Darren Stevens inspired Kent took the victory on their way to winning the competition.

Having beaten Surrey in their last match, Hampshire secured at least a home quarter-final with a chance to still finish top of the group.

Kent Spitfires are currently in third, with the opportunity to book their place in the knock-out stages.
