T20 Blast Time Cricket at Southampton


If you’re a big cricket fan in the Southampton area, then why not go to the Ageas Bowl and see some top quality action in the T20 blast?

Led by England international James Vince, the Hampshire Royals are packed full of international and domestic talent. The Southampton-based team have won the tournament twice although their last tournament victory was in 2012.  However, with home grown match-winners in Tom Alsop and Liam Dawson and international veterans like Fidel Edwards, this could be the year that the trophy returns to Southampton.
