Sussex Sharks would look to come out of the slump as they play a home game against the Essex Eagles in Vitality T20 Blast 2022. The Sharks are out of contention for a place in the next round after their loss against Kent in the previous game and they would be playing for pride. The Eagles defeated the table-toppers Sharks in the last game, and they would be high on confidence
The Sussex Sharks have been inconsistent right from the start. The side has won only once in the last seven games they have played. Their key players aren’t performing, and this has made it worse for the team. The Eagles had won the previous game between the two teams, and they would aim to repeat the same here and book a place for themselves in the next round by winning this game.
Ravi Bopara’s side is out of contention for a berth in the quarterfinals after their 6-wicket loss against Kent Spitfires in the last game. The side has suffered due to the inconsistency in its batting line-up. They would need to avoid repeating the same mistakes as they take on a stronger side. Bopara and his men play at home and shall look to take maximum advantage of it in this game.
Mohammad Rizwan and Harrison Ward shall look to deliver a strong start to the side in this contest. The middle-order has been shaky, and the trio of Ali Orr, Tom Alsop, and Delray Rawlins shall need to build partnerships in the game. Bopara and George Garton are good hitters of the ball. They shall have to push up the scoring for the side to challenge the Eagles.
Steven Finn and Rawlins shall have to produce tight spells in the game as the Essex have good hitters of the ball. Rashid Khan has bowled tight spells, but the side would like to see wickets from him to apply pressure on the opposition. Henry Crocombe, Will Beer and Bopara have a key role to play in the game during the middle overs.

Simon Harmer’s side is enjoying a good run. They are one win away from reaching the quarterfinals. The side played well in the last game against the table-toppers Surrey to seal a 43-run victory. Harmer would like his players to ride this confidence here and come up with a clinical show against Sussex who are down on confidence.
Feroze Khushi and Adam Rossington shall look to convert their starts as this has been a problem area for the side. They have Michael-Kyle Pepper in excellent form, and he would aim to build partnerships with Paul Walter and Daniel Lawrence in the middle order. Harmer and Daniel Sams have good striking abilities and runs can be expected from them in the final overs.
Aaron Beard was brilliant in the last game with his 4-wicket haul, and he would look to deliver early blows sharing the ball with Sams. Samuel Cook and Harmer bowled good lines against Surrey, and they would be high on confidence against a much weaker batting line-up. Aron Nijjar has struggled with his form and the side would like to see a better show from him.

Hove would see partly overcast skies on July 1. The wicket has been challenging at the start with the ball moving around and slowness when spinners have bowled. Batsmen need to get their eyes in before they start playing their strokes. The side that bats first would be happy to have 170 runs on the board.
County Ground, Hove is a big venue, and this makes it challenging for the batsmen to clear the boundary ropes easily. Fast bowlers have done well here as there is pace and bounce on the surface which can put batsmen on the backfoot. Spinners don’t get much out of the surface, but the slowness of the surface aids them.
It has been a relatively slow surface this season where batsmen must get adjusted to the pace of the track. The side chasing scores here have always had an advantage. The two captains would have this on their minds at the toss and the one winning it is likely to opt for bowling first in this game.
The Sussex Sharks are a good side that has suffered due to a lack of consistency. Their top order hasn’t produced runs in all games which has led to their downfall. It will be interesting to see how they shape up against a strong bowling attack. Essex Eagles are enjoying a purple patch, and this would make them favorites to win this game.
