The Benson and Hedges Cup Hampshire v Somerset from Bournemouth
Today's matches in this 55-over competition will decide which counties from the area league will go through to the quarter final. Both of the teams involved have equal points and, almost certainly, only the winners will qualify.
Hampshire with South African BARRY RICHARDS have a strong batting side, but Somerset, led by BRIAN CLOSE, have a good record in limited-over cricket.
