Rimmington ready for action

Hampshire, who can go top of the NatWest T20 Blast South Group with a big win over Middlesex Panthers today, have included new signing Nathan Rimmington in their squad.

Australian fast bowler Rimmington was yesterday announced as a replacement for South Africa seamer Kyle Abbott, who has returned home.

Rimmington is named in Hampshire’s 13-man squad alongside all-rounder Liam Dawson, who is set to return from injury.

Owais Shah is not in the hosts’ party as he is in line for Caribbean Premier League action.

A convincing victory for second-place Hampshire could see them knock Essex Eagles off the summit, albeit having played three more games.

Bottom side Middlesex will be led by England’s Eoin Morgan in a match that pits in-form batsmen Jimmy Adams and Dawid Malan against one another.
