Batsman James Vince has been confirmed as Hampshire captain for this summer's T20 Blast.

The 23-year-old England hopeful had already been appointed as vice captain of the County Championship and Royal London One-Day Cup sides.

"I'm looking forward to the challenge of captaining the side and it will be a very proud moment to lead the lads out in our first game," Vince told reporters.

"I'm lucky that we have a very talented squad and one that has already had a lot of success in the competition.

"I've played under some very good and successful captains who I've learnt a lot from so I will try and follow in their footsteps and hopefully we can have another enjoyable and successful T20 season."

Vince was Hampshire's Player of the Year last season.
