A 13-man squad has been named as Hampshire travel to Taunton for their LV= Insurance County Championship match against Somerset

Somerset v Hampshire
LV= Insurance County Championship (Division One)
Thursday 19th May - Sunday 22nd May 2022 (11am Start)

Hampshire return to LV= Insurance County Championship action tomorrow with an away fixture against Somerset at Taunton.

The two sides met in the season’s opening game last month at The Ageas Bowl. Joe Weatherley’s career best score of 168 and a destructive display from their bowling attack saw Hampshire wrap up the match in three days, recording an innings victory.

Somerset have turned things around after losing their first three fixtures, with back-to-back wins over Warwickshire and Gloucestershire propelling them up to sixth position.

Hampshire are currently third, having won three of their five matches so far this season.

Hampshire Squad

Hampshire have named a 13-player squad for the match this week.

Felix Organ and Aneurin Donald, who both played last week against a Sri Lanka Development XI, keep their place after impressing against Gloucestershire in the last County Championship fixture.

Mason Crane and Brad Wheal are back from loan spells with Sussex and Gloucestershire respectively and have both travelled with the squad.

Ian Holland looks set to make his 50th First-Class appearance for Hampshire, while Joe Weatherley remains side-lined with a fractured hand.
