Vitality T20 Blast is entering the last week of group games with the last 3-4 matches remaining for each team. Sussex are currently the table-toppers of the South group while Essex are reeling at the bottom of the points table with no wins till now. Sussex will look to qualify or the knockouts asap with a couple of wins while Essex need to win all their remaining matches and rely on other team results to qualify for the next round. Both these teams are scheduled to meet twice in their remaining 4 matches and a win in this match will give them a psychological edge over the other team.

Sussex Preview

Sussex openers Luke Wright (45 runs) and Calum McLeod (19 runs) started the chase in good fashion last night with a 63-run opening partnership. Delray Rawlins took charge after them as he scored unbeaten 62 runs off 33 balls with Ravi Bopara (19 runs) for company to win the match comfortably by 8 wickets.

Earlier Sussex bowlers were right on money as they restricted the Kent team to just 141 runs. Spin duo of Daniel Briggs and Delray Rawlins shared 5 wickets between themselves at an economy rate of less than 7 RPO. Chris Jordan and Tymal Mills bowled economically and chipped in with a wicket each to never allow momentum to the opposition batsmen.

Top players to bet on:

Luke Wright – Luke Wright has scored 285 runs at a strike rate of 150 this season so far. He will look to continue his good form at the top to attack bowlers early on in the match.  

Delray Rawlins – Rawlins had an all-round performance last night scoring 62 runs with the bat and then claiming 2 wickets with the ball. He will provide great balance to the team with his all-round capabilities.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Luke Wright (c), Calum MacLeod, Delray Rawlins, Ravi Bopara, David Wiese, Chris Jordan, Ben Brown (wk), Ollie Robinson, George Garton, Danny Briggs, Tymal Mills

Essex Preview

Essex openers Cameron Delport (64 runs) and Adam Wheater (63 runs) have scored the bulk of runs last night and shared an attacking 105-run opening partnership. Daniel Lawrence (17 runs) and Ten Doeschate (27 runs) played vital cameos while the rest of the batsmen fell like nine pins. They finished with a good score of 195 runs in their 20 overs.

The bowling unit was not consistent with their line and lengths and all bowlers barring their skipper Simon Harmer gave runs at 9 RPO. Aaron Beard, Samuel Cook, and Aron Nijjar bowled at the top and death and had combined figures of 10-0-115-5.  They failed to defend 10 runs in last over to lose in a last ball thriller.

Top players to bet on:

Cameron Delport – Delport set the tone of the match with his 64 runs off 32 balls with 8 boundaries and 3 sixes to his name. He will look to give yet another attacking start in this match.

Simon Harmer – Simon Harmer bowled superbly with figures of 4-0-29-0 in the high scoring match despite bowlers at the other end going for a lot of runs. His spell gave them a chance to take the match till the end.

Essex Predicted Playing XI:

Cameron Delport, Adam Wheater (wk), Daniel Lawrence, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Ryan ten Doeschate, Paul Walter, Simon Harmer (c), Aaron Beard, Jack Plom, Aron Nijjar, Samuel Cook

Weather Conditions

Hove has less than 5% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters and we expect it won’t make a big impact in the game.

Venue Details

County Ground is a belter of track with batsmen making merry with runs. Teams scored over 175+ runs in the two matches played here.  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.

Both teams have attacking batsmen at the top who can take advantage of the favorable batting conditions on offer.  Sussex has a better bowling unit compared to Essex in terms of experience and quality. Both Jordan and Mills who can take the pace off the ball in death overs effectively can be a big advantage for Sussex. We predict Sussex to continue their victory march owing to the form, momentum and stronger bowling attack in this match.

SUSSEX will win this match.
