Vitality Blast is picking up momentum and a lot of players are all set miss the matches owing to their national commitments. Essex and Middlesex the two team splaying this match are currently lagging in the lower half of the points table with more losses than wins. Both teams will need to win this match to move ahead in the league phase. Essex ended their 5-match winless streak with a win in their last game while Middlesex have now lost 4 off their 5 matches with 2 on a trot.

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex failed to chase 151 runs in their last game against Glamorgan. Paul Stirling (46 runs) and Eoin Morgan (33 runs) shared a superb 61-run partnership after a couple of quick wickets. But their middle order fell like a pack of 9 cards to finish with just 129/9 in the 20 overs. They never threatened the chase once the Eoin Morgan fell. Morgan is not availble for this match owing to national commitments. 

Steve Finn was their star bowler last night with bowling figures of 4-0-19-4 in the match. Young Blake Cullen picked up 3 wickets and looked excellent with the bat. Spinner Luke Hollman picked 2 wickets in the middle overs but leaked runs ta nearly 9 RPO.

Top Players to bet on:

Paul Stirling – Stirling has been giving brisk starts at the top with 130 runs at a strike rate of 150+ but he has play big knocks to help his post a massive total on board.

Steve Finn – Steve Finn is their highest wicket-taker with 10 wickets so far but his economy rate of 8.8 RPO is a bit of concern for the team. He was exceptional with the ball last night and will look to repeat his performance.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Stephen Eskinazi, Paul Stirling, Joe Cracknell, Varun Chopra, John Simpson (wk), Luke Hollman, Chris Green, Blake Cullen, Steven Finn, Ethan Bamber, Tim Murtagh

Essex Preview

Essex batsmen chased down a meagre target of 119 runs comfortably with 8 wickets remaining. William Buttleman (56 runs) and Adam Weather (30 runs) almost sealed the game with their 67-run opening partnership. James Neesham and Ryan Tendoeschate add great depth heir batting and bowling units with their all-round skills.

Young pacer Samuel cook was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4/15. Spin trio of Aron Njjar, Dan Lawrence, and Simon harmer shared 5 wickets between themselves. They bowled out the opposition for just 118 runs in 16.4 overs with all the five bowlers used claiming wickets.

Top Players to bet on:

Jimmy Neesham – Neesham had a quiet game last night with as his services were not required with the bat and ball. He has 122 runs at a strike rate of 150+ wand his ability to close the innings with a bang will be a big boost for the team.  

Samuel Cook – Cook is having a dream season with 11 wickets at an economy rate of just 6.5 RPO. He will need to maintain consistency across the matches to impress the national selectors.

Essex Predicted Playing XI:

William Buttleman, Adam Wheater (wk), Daniel Lawrence, Michael-Kyle Pepper, James Neesham, Ryan ten Doeschate, Paul Walter, Simon Harmer (c), Shane Snater, Aron Nijjar, Samuel Cook

Essex Actual Playing XI:

Weather Conditions

London has a bright and sunny weather with just 10-20% chances of rain. We expect the rain to stay away from the match with no interruptions.

Venue Details

Lords is a belter of a track with a lot of runs on offer. Last match team batting first scored 220+ runs and match had an aggregate runs of 380+ runs easily. We expect the scores to be around 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as we expect a high scoring contest with pitch expected to remain the same throughout the match.  

Essex had a perfect outing last night strolling past the opposition for an easy win by 8 wickets. Their bowlers bowled to the plan and batsmen chased the target with ease. And they did not need the services of all-rounders Neesham, Walter, and Doeschate. Middlesex will miss Eoin Morgan who goes to the national team. Their batsmen are not contributing in the middle order and rely heavily on top order to make runs. We expect Essex to win this match.

Essex will win the match.
