HAMPSHIRE spin all-rounder Liam Dawson has emerged as a major threat to South Wilts' prospects of retaining the Southern Electric t20 Cup.

He is named in a powerful Hampshire Academy side for tomorrow's second round tie on the Ageas Bowl Nursery Ground.

Dawson has been sidelined with a groin injury since Hampshire's NatWest Blast t20 defeat by Glamorgan in May.

The game gets under way at 5pm.
