Left-hand opener Nick Baker has his eyes fixed on a 500-run milestone for the season when Bashley (Rydal) host the Hampshire Academy at the BCG, 12.30pm.

Baker is in good form for a generally under-performing Bashley side and is 16 runs light of his target with two games left.

Bashley recall Neil Thurgood and Kevin Nash from second team duty, but lose the dual-registered Luke Webb to the Academy side.

Hampshire are without England Under-19 duo Tom Alsop and Brad Taylor, while skipper Joe Weatherley and Mason Crane play for England Under-17s against Pakistan at Loughborough.

Bashley (Rydal): Neil Thurgood, Nick Baker, Michael Porter, James Morris, Richard Morris, Jaron Morgan, Sam Thomson, Andy Neal, Dan Friedman, Ross Grierson, Kevin Nash.
