Glamorgan would be facing a big challenge as they face Surrey in the 24th game of the T20 Blast 2021. Surrey has won both its games by big margins and demolished the Somerset bowling attack in the last game and they would be full of confidence. Glamorgan also did well against Gloucestershire in the last game earning their first points of the season.
Glamorgan hasn’t had the best of records against Surrey in the last few seasons and have always struggled against them. Their bowling attack is slightly weak which would give them headaches. Surrey comes into this game with a star-studded batting line-up and this would add to their advantage and playing at home the side would be counting its chances.
Gareth Batty’s side has looked good in the two games they have played and won both of them by big margins. They come here with a 7-wicket win against Somerset where they made a mockery of the big run chase winning it with four overs to spare. With their batting looking good, Batty would go into this game with lot of confidence.
At the top they have a very strong opening pair in Jason Roy and Will Jacks and shall look for an electrifying start from them. Laurie Evans and Sam Curran played brilliantly in the last game and add strength to the middle order. In Jamie Smith, Jordan Clark, Tom Curran and Jamie Overton the side has great depth down the order.
Their bowling attack took a bit of beating in the last game and the side would need early wickets from Sam Curran and Matt Dunn. Batty and Daniel Moriarty did well in the last game and they would look to bowl with the same rhythm. With Tom Curran and Overton in the team the side has good variety in the attack.

Chris Cooke’s side earned its first points of the season as they defeated the Essex Eagles in the last game by 7 wickets. It was a good show from their young bowling attack that kept Essex to a small total and their batsmen were clinical in their chase. Cooke would want them to take inspiration from this win as they take on a formidable Surrey.
David Lloyd and Nicholas Selman shall have to deliver in this game as both these players have done well so far. Marnus Labuschagne is looking in good form and adds to the strength with Colin Ingram and Cooke. The side would expect Kiran Carlson and Daniel Douthwaite to do the heavy lifting towards the end of the innings.
Prem Sisodiya and Andrew Salter bowled well in the last game and the same would be needed from them here as they are up against a very good side. Ruaidhri Smith impressed with his tight spells in the last game and shall need to play the containing role along with Daniel Douthwaite and Timm van der Gugten.

The skies over London would have odd clouds on June 14 and it would be typical warm conditions. The pace and bounce on this surface as always been true and we expect the batsmen to play their strokes easily. A score of 180 runs would be on the mind of the side batting first here.
Kennington Oval, London balances it out between the batsmen and the bowlers. There is early assistance for the fast bowlers on this surface and batsmen are able to play their strokes easily due to the true bounce on the surface. Spinners don’t find much of assistance from this surface.
This will be the first game of the season on this track and we expect there to be some juice on the surface that would aid the bowlers at the start of the game. The skipper winning the toss would look to make good use of the conditions by opting to bowl first.
Glamorgan haven’t looked in the best of form yet. Their bowling attack is relatively inexperienced and this is one of the major challenges for the side. They will have to bowl extremely well as Surrey has one of the strongest batting line-ups this season. Surrey has all the bases covered and with home advantage on their side they would start favourites in this game.
