Glamorgan are yet to register a win in the Vitality T20 Blast 2019, and unsurprisingly occupy the bottom place in the South group. In their 12th match, Glamorgan face Hampshire, who sit two places above them.
Here are Dream 11 Predictions and fantasy cricket tips for the game.
The match between Glamorgan and Hampshire in the South group of the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 will take place at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff at 5:30 pm GMT on Friday, August 30.
Andrew Salter has been a bright spot in a rather disappointing tournament for Glamorgan. Colin Ingram is known to be a powerful striker of the ball, but hasn’t been on top of his form. David Loyld has scored over 300 runs in 11 matches, and is their highest run scorer.
Kyle Abbott has added three more wickets to his tally, and he now has 15 wickets in the tournament. Chris Morris and Liam Dawson have picked up 12 and 9 wickets respectively, and adding their batting ability to it makes them a good choice for the captain in fantasy teams. Dawson is in fact their highest run scorer in the tournament. Their recent inductee Tabraiz Shamsi can also be expected to pick up wickets.

Weather and pitch report
The Cardiff pitch does not make much of a difference, batting first or second, and it depends on the team’s tactics. On Friday though, the conditions are expected to be cloudy and if that is the case, teams might to look to bowl first to extract some swing early in the innings.
Hampshire were victorious on three of the previous five occasions that these two teams met, while Glamorgan win the other two.
