Vitality T20 Blast is one of the biggest leagues to happen in this pandemic era with 18 teams. Both teams are yet to get their first win after three matches with similar results of a loss, a tied match and an abandoned match. Essex came into the tournament as the defending champions and their title defense is yet to take off momentum. Middlesex were lucky to end the match in a tie against Kent with 5 runs required off last over. They failed to defend the target in last match too as Sussex won in the last over thriller. Both teams will look to resurrect the campaign with a win in this match.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex batting unit scored 165 runs in their 20 overs last night. Steve Eskinazi (79 runs) and Josh Simpson (46 runs) were the chief architects with their 80-run partnership in the middle as they took the team form 75/3 in 10 overs to 155/3 in 18 overs. They scored just 10 runs in last 2 overs which proved to be costly in the end.

Tom helm and Steve Finn picked 3 wickets inside the powerplay to put the opposition in back foot early on. Ian Holland built on their good start with 2 wickets to restrict the opposition to 67/5 at the end of 10 overs. They failed to capitalize their position as they ended up giving 101 runs in the next 9.1 overs.  

Top players to bet on:

Steve Eskinazi – Eskinazi has 187 runs at a strike rate of nearly 170 at the top. He has scores of 24, 84, & 79 in the three matches and will look to dominate the bowlers early in the powerplay.

Tom Helm – Helm bowled superbly with figures of 3.2-0-17-2 in the match but failed to take their team to victory. He defended 5 runs off the last over against Kent to pull off a heist in the previous match.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Max Holden, Stephen Eskinazi, Martin Andersson, Nick Gubbins, John Simpson (wk), Dan Lincoln, James Harris, Luke Hollman, Tom Helm, Steven Finn (c), Nathan Sowter

Essex Preview

Ryan Ten Doeschate (37 runs) and Cameron Delport (36 runs) played vital cameos to take their team to 139/6 in 20 overs. Essex batsmen are yet to score a fifty despite scores between 20-40 runs made 7 times in the last two matches. They need to bat sensibly and score big to help their post scores in range of 160+.

Essex bowling unit put a brave fight in both matches despite defending scores less than 145 runs. Paul Walter, Aron Nijjar, and Mathew Quinn are their chief wicket-takers with a combined tally of 10 wickets so far. Skipper Simon Harmer, Shane Snater, Cameron Delport, and Daniel Lawrence will add to the depth of their bowling attack.

Top players to bet on:

Ryan ten Doeschate – Doeschate has scores of 35 & 37* in the last two matches. He will look to capitalize on his good form and post a big score in this match.  He has vast experience in T20 format playing across different stages.

Mathew Quinn – Quinn has 5 wickets at an economy rate of just 7 RPO so far. He has taken wickets in all the three matches so far and will look to continue his good showing with the ball.

Essex Predicted Playing XI:

Cameron Delport, Varun Chopra, Tom Westley, Daniel Lawrence, Ryan ten Doeschate, Adam Wheater (wk), Paul Walter, Simon Harmer (c), Aron Nijjar, Shane Snater, Matthew Quinn

Weather Conditions

London weather looks dark and gloomy has 70% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters and we expect rain will not play spoilsport in this match.

Venue Details

Lord`s is a high scoring venue where teams scored overs 160+ runs consistently. Team’s even scored over 200+ runs in the first match here. Bowlers must look to contain the batsmen with probing line and lengths.

Toss: To Bowl

Both teams batted first in their last two matches but failed to win and will look to bowl first and change their fortunes in this match.

Middlesex batting unit has posted a good scores in board in all their three matches but failed to defend them. Their bowling unit has filed to bowl consistently and will need to up their game in this contest. Essex has one of the strongest bowling attacks with a variety of bowling options but their batting line-up lacks firepower to post a big score on board.  This will be contest between Middlesex batsmen and Essex bowlers. We expect Middlesex to win this contest as they psychological edge positing 184 runs in their previous match.

MIDDLESEX WILL GET THEIR MAIDEN VICTORY
