sur vs ess Match Prediction & Analysis

Vitality T20 Blast has a wrecked start with weather conditions playing a big spoilsport so far. 8 of 9 completed matches ended in no result due to rain so far.  Both Surrey and Essex`s opening match were abandoned. Both teams bowled first in their opening encounter and did not get chance to bat barring Essex`s 9-ball stint at the grease. Teams will be eager to match time first owing to their long break from the field due to the pandemic. Teams will fight out to get their first victory with weather being forecasted good for the match day.

Teams Preview

Surrey Preview

Surrey miss a host of players in their campaign this year with the likes of Ollie Pope, Jason Roy, Tom Curran, Reece Topley, Jade Dernbach set to miss the tournament. Rory Burns, Mark Stoneman, James Taylor, and Keeper Ben Foakes have big responsibility in their batting unit this season.

Skipper Gareth Batty was the best bowler of the last night with figures of 3-0-17-2. Daniel Moriarty and Gus Atkinson picked up a wicket each while Scott Borthwick completed his overs economically.

Top players to bet on:

Rory Burns – Burns returns from a lean series against Pakistan in tests but his match preparedness will help him concentrate easily. He will look to regain form with good showing in this season.

Gareth batty – Gareth Batty will lead the bowling attack this season. He dismissed the dangerous looking Philip Salt and Ravi Bopara last night to bring their team back into the contest after a good start by the opposition.

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Gareth Batty (c), Gus Atkinson, Scott Borthwick, Rory Burns, Matt Dunn, Ben Foakes (wk), Will Jacks, Daniel Moriarty, Jamie Smith, Mark Stoneman, James Taylor

Surrey Actual Playing XI:

Matt Dunn, Scott Borthwick, Ben Foakes, Gareth Batty, Jamie Smith, James Taylor, Will Jacks, Rory Burns, Gus Atkinson, Laurie Evans, Daniel Moriarty

Essex Preview

Essex openers Varun Chopra and Cameron Delport have vast experience in English county circuit and will look to make a big impact in this season. They have a very strong middle order with the likes of Daniel Lawrence, Tom Westley, Ryan Ten Doeschate, and Adam Wheater in their ranks.

Top players to bet on:

Varun Chopra – Varun Chopra is one the veterans in the county cricket having played over 100 T20 matches. He will look to provides good starts to set the tone of the match for his team.

Weather Conditions

London is expected to have bright sunshine on the match day and we expect no weather interruptions whatsoever in this match.

Venue Details

Kennington Oval is one of good batting pitches in England and we expect batsmen to enjoy batting here once they are set. We can expect average scores around 160-180 runs on this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option in T20 matches nowadays and the moisture early in the pitch due to earlier rains will help the bowlers considerably.

SUR vs ESS Winning Prediction

Essex has a strong team in both batting and bowling department when compared with Surrey this year. Surrey will miss a host of players due to injuries and national commitments and will need to build a team from the start under the captaincy off Gareth Batty. Laurie Evans will not available due to the transfer conditions in this match for Surrey. We expect Essex to win this match and put their first points on board.
