Venue Details

Cardiff has been a bowling friendly surface batsmen struggling to score runs freely. The pitch is slightly on the slower side and it becomes hard to time the ball in the middle overs especially. The highest score in this pitch has been 230 runs in 4 matches so far. We expect the average scores in this match to be around 220-230 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 3-1 win-loss record at this venue and we expect both captains to bat first in this match.

Glamorgan has been in superb form dominating the opposition in their home conditions especially. They rely heavily on their openers in the batting department will be their only weakness. Essex has a superb batting and bowling attacks with a good depth and balance in their squad. Their lower order has stood up with the bat and helped their team win crunch situations. They also have a variety of bowling options with good pace and spin bowlers in the playing XI. We expect Essex to win this match owing to their department and balance in their playing XI.

Essex will win the match and go to the finals.
