We do not anticipate this match to have a season-ending dead-rubber feel, even though Hampshire Hawks have already qualified and Sussex Sharks are no longer in contention for the knockout stage. With names like James Vince and Ben McDermott at the top of the order, Sussex Sharks have a lot of talent and would love the chance to defeat them. In this matchup, though, we are betting on an away victory.
