Hampshire will have at least six matches televised live this season.

Paul King, Sky Sports’ cricket executive producer, said: "Hampshire were the limited-overs kings last year but there will be a number of sides who fancy stealing that crown, while the championship will also be closely fought. We can't wait for it all to start in April.”
