sus vs som Match Prediction & Analysis

Sussex has been on a roll winning all their 3 matches played so far and have claimed their entire 6 points. They have a superb batting unit and bowling unit that are performing well in cohesion. Sussex bowlers have reduced the opposition to less than 180 runs in all matches.  Somerset returned to form after losing the first 2 matches with a big win in the third match. Their bowling unit backed up the batsmen in the last game to come up with a splendid game. We expect a cracking contest between two in-form teams with a high-quality action.

Teams Preview

Sussex Preview

Sussex chased down the meagre target of 130 runs in just 14 overs with 7 wickets remaining comfortably. Luke Wright (75 runs) shared 54-run & 60-run partnership with Philip Salt (13 runs) and Travis head (27 runs) to chase down the total easily. Ravi Bopara and George Garton are also played vital knocks and are looking in good touch.

Pace trio of George Garton (3 wickets), Tymal Mills (2 wickets) and Chris Jordan (1 wicket) were exceptional with the ball and had combined bowling figures of 12-0-73-6 in the match. Spinner Will beer and Ravi Bopara put on strangle hold in the middle overs and had combined figures of 6-0-37-2 to restrict the opposition to 128/8 in 20 overs.

Top Players to bet on:

Philip Salt: Salt has scores of 72*, 77* & 13 in the 3 matches and he was dismissed only once run-out and is yet to be dismissed by a bowler. We expect him to make a big score in this match too and lead his team from the top.

George Garton: Garton`s bowling figures read 3/31, 2/11, 3/19 in the 3 matches and he has an economy rate of just 5 RPO strangling the batsmen effectively. He has dismissed 4 openers inside the powerplay among his 8 wickets setting the tone for his bowling department.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Philip Salt (wk), Luke Wright (c), Travis Head, Ravi Bopara, David Wiese, Delray Rawlins, George Garton, Chris Jordan, Will Beer, Tymal Mills, Archie Lenham

Somerset Preview

Somerset put on a massive 200+ runs in their last game after two 180+ runs in first 2 matches. Somerset scored 52 runs at the end of powerplay but their top-3 batters. Tom Abell (68 runs) and Goldsworthy (48 runs) shared 90-rin partnership and coupled with few quick fire runs from the lower order took their team to 204/7 at the end of 20 overs.

Their bowlers kept taking wickets and never allowed any partnership to bowl the opposition for 157 runs. Merchant de Lange was the pick of bowlers with 3 wickets while Max Waller contributed with 2 wickets. Craig Overton, Josh Davey, and Goldsworthy picked up one wicket each.

Top Players to bet on:

Tom Abell: Abell has scores of 68 & 69 in the last 2 matches at a strike rate of nearly 175. He has been the team`s middle order fulcrum with the other batters playing around him and will look to make yet another big score in this match.

Merchant de Lange: De lange has been their top wicket taker with 7 wickets in 3 matches but his economy rate of nearly 9 RPO which is a big concern for the team. He can also hit some massive hits lower down the order.

Somerset Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Banton (wk), James Hildreth, Will Smeed, Tom Abell, Lewis Goldsworthy, Lewis Gregory (c), Craig Overton, Ben Green, Marchant de Lange, Josh Davey, Max Waller

Hove has a dark, cloudy and rainy weather on the match day with 100% chances of precipitation as per the weather forecasters. Rain might have an impact on the numbers of overs played.

Venue Details

Hove is good sporting wicket with good balance between the bat and ball. We expect the ball to aid the faster bowlers with overcast conditions on the match day. Average scores in this venue would be around 160-180 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Sussex has won all their 3 matches chasing while Somerset has lost 2 matches batting first. So both teams will look to chase the total owing to better chasing record so far.

 

SUS vs SOM Winning Prediction

Sussex bowling unit has been their biggest strength this season helping their batting unit chase down moderate to competitive totals. Their batsmen have chased the total inside 18 overs in all the matches. Somerset bowling unit on the other hand has leaked 180+ runs twice but their batting unit has crossed 180+ runs in all 3 matches. Their bowlers need to be more consistent to put on an all-round show. We expect Sussex to continue their winnings treka in this match too.

SUSSEX will continue their winning streak
