JAMES Vince inspired Hampshire to a double-header of victories to keep alive the club’s hopes of qualifying for the T20 Blast quarter-finals but said “if only we'd won some of the other games.”

Vince scored 164 runs over the two matches, including 102 off of 59 balls to chase a Sussex Sharks total of 184, and aided his side to victories that also included Essex Eagles.

Hampshire have just one game remaining when they welcome Glamorgan to the Ageas Bowl today, and sit just two points behind Surrey and Sussex inside the top four.

Should they defeat Glamorgan, who are second bottom in the group, they may just stand a chance of reaching the final eight.

Surrey have finished their fixtures while Sussex face a trip to group leaders Kent Spitfires, and currently fifth-placed Gloucestershire travel to second-placed Somerset.

Speaking after the matches, Vince said: "It's been a great day, we knew we had to win both games to keep our chances alive and the boys were outstanding across the park.

“We still need a few things to go our way and when you get in this position you look back and think 'if only we'd won some of the other games' but that is in the past now.

"You don't often have weeks like this, but it has been a great one. I can't put my finger on why that is, perhaps it is confidence being part of it. I am just running with the form and I hope it continues."

Vince hit his maiden ODI century against Pakistan earlier in the week, scoring 102 off of 95 balls to complete a series sweep over the visitors.

The Cuckfield-born batsman and Hampshire captain is in a rich vein of form in differing formats, and will look to continue his summer as such when his side compete in Division One of the County Championship.
