Match Preview

Vitality T20 Blast is the pioneer for T20 cricket and was started in 2004. The T20 Blast is deprived of a lot of international stars this season due to the pandemic and it provides a great opportunity for the English players to showcase their talents. Sussex and Surrey will the last two teams to play their opening matches in South Group as the remaining 4 teams are scheduled to play on the first day itself. Both teams will look to make a big mark this season and first thing is they need to get to the business end of the tournament. A good start is what the doctor ordered for both teams and look out for hard fought battle early on.

Teams Preview

Sussex Preview

Sussex have the core of their batting line-up intact with the likes of Skipper Luke Wright, Laurie Evans, Philip Salt, and Delray Rawlins in the squad.  Ben Brown is expected to take the wicket-keeping responsibilities in absence of Australian Alex Carey.

Sussex will miss a number of players in the bowling department with Jofra Archer, Rashid Khan, David Wiese, Chris Jordan, and Jason Behrendoff set to miss the entire season. Reece Topley, Ollie Robinson, and Tymal Mills will lead the pace attack of the team. Will Beer and Danny Briggs will share the spin bowling duties of the team.

Top players to bet on:

Philip Salt – Salt scored 406 runs at a strike rate of 160+ last season with 4 fifties top his name. He is superb opener who can take away the match from the opposition in no time.

Reece Topley – Topley accounted for 17 wickets last season and is good form with the ball recently. He even made a brief comeback into the national team against the Ireland team recently.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Luke Wright(C), Laurie Evans, Philip Salt, Harry Finch, Delray Rawlins, Ben Brown(Wk), Reece Topley, Ollie Robinson, Tymal Mills, Will Beer, Danny Briggs

Sussex Actual Playing XI:

Luke Wright, RS Bopara, Tymal Mills, Danny Briggs, Ollie Robinson, Delray Rawlins, George Garton, Harry Finch, Will Beer, Philip Salt, Aaron Thomason

Surrey Preview

Surrey will miss the services of Aaron Finch, Sam Curran, Tom Curran, and Imran Tahir in their squad this season. Mark Stoneman, Rory Burns, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes, and Jordan Clark will form a stable batting line-up.  Their batting line-up has quality players but lack a big-hitter who can provide the x-factor.

Skipper Jade Dernback will rely heavily on the likes of Liam Plunkett, Gareth Batty, Scott Borthwick, Stuart Jordan, and Conor McKerr. Their bowling is affected big time due to absence of the Curran brothers & Imran Tahir.

Top players to bet on:

Ollie Pope – Ollie Pope comes back from a Test Series against Pakistan and will be raring to play in the T20 blast. He will look to prove his worth as an all-format player with his performances this year.

Jade Dernbach – Dernbach is one of the best exponents of the slower ball and variations in the English Conditions. He will need to take the added responsibilities in bowling department as they miss experienced players.

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Mark Stoneman, Rory Burns, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes (Wk), Jordan Clark, Liam Plunkett, Gareth Batty, Scott Borthwick, Conor McKerr, Jade Dernbach (C), Rikki Clarke

Surrey Actual Playing XI:

Mark Stoneman, Matt Dunn, Scott Borthwick, Ben Foakes, Gareth Batty, Jamie Smith, James Taylor, Will Jacks, Rory Burns, Daniel Moriarty, Gus Atkinson

Weather Conditions

Dove is expected to have a cloudy day with almost 70% chances of rain. The rain is expected to make its mark in this match but we predict it to have very less impact on the match.  

Venue Details

County Ground has a good pitch to bat on with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. The bowlers will find a little spice early on but as the match progresses batting becomes easier owing to the softer old ball.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have 5-2 win-loss record here and we expect both teams to chase down the target in this flat track.  

Winning Prediction

Both Sussex and Surrey miss a lot of layers but they still possess a lot of players who are very well experienced in The T20s.  Surrey has a better batting unit when compared to Sussex with the likes of England Test regulars such as Ollie Pope, Rory Burns, and Ben Foakes in the playing XI. But their bowling department is hardest hit and look very weak and bleak on resources. We expect Sussex to win this match owing to their overall squad strength.

SUSSEX will win their opening match.
