A brilliant bowling performance means Yorkshire have been set a lowly victory target of just 173 to win their final Royal London One-Day Cup group match against Hampshire today at the AEGEAS Bowl.

After winning the toss and electing to field, Adil Rashid was the Vikings' hero with final figures of 5-33 on the South Coast.

Only Jimmy Adams offered any resistance for Hampshire, who have rested a number of first-team players for this match ahead of their appearance at the NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day on Saturday.

He finished on 91 not out, but after restricting Hampshire to 172 all out in only 39 overs, Yorkshire will be confident of victory under the floodlights.

If they are victorious, they will wrap up top spot in Group A and secure a home quarter-final against Durham next week.
