Teams Preview

Sussex Preview

Sussex won their last match against Middlesex by 3 wickets as momentum kept oscillating between the two teams. David Wiese played a superb hand of 79* runs to take his team to victory from 67/5 in 10 overs. Delray Rawlins and George Garton came with small cameos to build a partnership in the middle.

Daniel Briggs once led his bowling attack with a superb spell of 4-0-21-2. Tymal Mills and Ollie Robinson chipped in crucial wickets in the middle and helped their bowling attack restrict the opposition. They struggled with the fifth bowler as the trio of George Garton, David Wiese, and Ravi Bopara went for 45 runs in their combined 4 overs.

Top players to bet on:

David Wiese – David Wiese has scores of 79* & 43* in the last two matches to lead his team to victory in the respective chases. He is scoring at a strike arte of nearly 150 this season so far.

Daniel Briggs – Daniel Briggs has 5 wickets at an economy rate of less than 5 RPO in the two matches he bowled.  His chokehold on the opposition batsmen will be a big advantage for his team.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Philip Salt (wk), Luke Wright (c), Harry Finch, Delray Rawlins, David Wiese, Ravi Bopara, George Garton, Ollie Robinson, Will Beer, Danny Briggs, Tymal Mills

Tim Groenawald played his first game and straightaway made an impact with his 2 wickets. Kent bowlers took Fred Klassen, Matt Milnes, and Imran Quayyum did not take enough wickets but kept the run rate in check as they ended up giving just 161 runs in their 20 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Weather Conditions

Hove is expected to have 50-60% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters. We expect rain interruptions to make a lesser impact in this match

Venue Details

County Ground pitch has a good balance between the bat and ball with something in it for both batsmen and bowlers. Spinners may a vital role in this pitch due to its uneven nature. We can expect scores around 160-180 runs in this match. 

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 7-3 win-loss ratio in their favor in the last 10 T20 matches this season and we expect both captains to field first if they win the toss.  

Winning Prediction

Kent has a good batting line-up that has dominated by the openers and middle order has contributed vital runs. But their bowling attack lacks the tooth as they have just 6 wickets in the last two matches combined giving runs ta over 9 RPO. Sussex openers looked good but David Wiese has scored the bulk of runs so far. Their bowling attack looks good with the likes of Daniel Brigs and Tymal Mills amongst the wickets. We expect Sussex to win this match owing to their team balance and composition.

SUSSEX will win this match.
