HAMPSHIRE skipper James Vince is looking to guide his side to another T20 finals day when they begin their Blast campaign at Kent tomorrow (7pm).

The Ageas Bowl outfit have brought back their famous Hawks moniker for the shortest form of the game this season.

And, speaking to the club website, England international Vince is eager for his troops to progress to the business end of the competition once again.

“I’d expect to hopefully make finals day, hopefully go on and win the competition,” the 30-year-old batsman said.

“But first and foremost get through to the quarter-finals and then hopefully get to another finals day.

“All being well I’d obviously like to win the trophy.”

Fans are also set to be in attendance at the Ageas Bowl for Hampshire’s first home T20 contest on Monday, June 28, when they host Middlesex.

“I can’t wait to have fans back,” added captain Vince.

“I was lucky enough in the winter, I got to play in front of some crowds in Australia and it just makes such a big difference.

“Arriving at the ground and actually playing in front of people, which is one of the main reasons why we play the sport – to entertain people.

“Some familiar faces back in here (the Ageas Bowl) and some new faces – it’s so much better when we play in front of crowds. I can’t wait to have them back.”

Nottinghamshire are listed as the bookmakers’ favourites to win the competition outright this season, ahead of Surrey and Lancashire.
