sus vs ess Match Prediction & Analysis

Host Sussex will be looking to continue their decent form when they take on Essex in the 108th match of T20 Blast at Hove.

Sussex registered a 33-run win over Glamorgan, courtesy splendid contributions from Phil Salt, Luke Wright and Archie Lenham. Wicket-keeper Phil Salt, who has earned his maiden call-up for England ODI series against Pakistan, will not available for remaining three matches. The home side will be looking to find a suitable replacement to partner Luke Wright at the top of the innings.

On the other hand, Essex have managed to register back-to-back victories in the tournament. With 11 points to their name in 11 matches, 2019 T20 Blast Champions do have a realistic chance of qualifying for the next round. The county side will need to win atleast two matches to seal their place in the knockout stages.
