Hampshire are hoping to continue the perfect start to their Clydesdale Bank 40 campaign tomorrow night.

The Royals are aiming for a fourth successive win against a Nottinghamshire Outlaws side including Michael Lumb under The Ageas Bowl floodlights (4.40pm start).

Notts lost the only game they have played, a shock defeat against Scotland.

But Lumb will be determined to impress on his return to The Ageas Bowl and is expected to open alongside England Lions star Alex Hales.

Hampshire manager Giles White said: “Michael’s done well recently and he’s a dangerous player, we’re well aware of that. Hopefully he doesn’t score too many against us.

“They’ve got a number of good players so we’ll have to be ready for all of them.”

Dimi Mascarenhas is expected to play his first home game since returning from the IPL.

White added: “Someone will miss out but it’s good to have strength in depth, we’ve got a very healthy competition for places.”
