Venue Details

Lord`s is expected to a belter of track with batsmen making merry with runs. Both teams scored over 200+ runs in the last match.  We can expect average scores in the range of 180-200 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option with batting paradise and shorter boundaries on offer. No target can be safe on this pitch.

Winning Prediction

Middlesex has an excellent batting line-up with contributions from 4-5 different batsmen but their bowling lacks consistency and giving a lot of runs easily.  Sussex too have a good batting line-up but depends on the openers to give a good start. Sussex pacers have been erratic but spinners and medium pacers have contributed for the team. We expect Sussex to win this contest owing to their overall team strength and composition.

SUSSEX will win this match.
