Sussex vs Essex

Sussex (Match Odds – 1.95):


Ravi Bopara’s team defeated Surrey by 5 wickets in the previous game. They have earned their first points of the season with this victory. While the bowlers did well, the batting did not appear to be confident. The middle order appears rusty, posing a significant challenge for the team. Bopara is aware of Essex’s batting strength and anticipates a strong performance from his bowlers.

Tom Clark and Alistar Orr must bat well to start the innings and lay a solid foundation. Bopara will look to lead from the front and add runs in the middle order with Tom Alsop and Geroge Garton. They will also be looking for a strong performance from Michael Burgess and James Coles in the lower middle order.

The bowling attack will face a significant challenge in this game, and they will need a strong performance with the new ball from James Coles and Garton. Fynn Hudson-Prentice and Tymal Mills bowled well in the previous game and will carry that confidence forward. Archie Lenham, Bopara, and Henry Crocombe add variety to this strong attack.

Full Squad:

Tom Haines, Stiaan van Zyl, Tom Clark, Delray Rawlins, Ollie Robinson, George Garton, Jack Carson, JP Sarro, Jamie Atkins, Sean Hunt, Alastair Orr, Henry Crocombe, Will Beer, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Steven Finn, Tom Alsop, Steve Smith (Australia), Cheteshwar Pujara (India), Shadab Khan (Pakistan), Nathan McAndrew (Australia)

Essex (Match Odds – 1.85):


The season has started well for Simon Harmer’s team. Their batsmen appear to be in good form, as they chased down a big total against Gloucestershire to win by three wickets. Harmer wants his bowlers to execute their strategies in this game after a poor showing in the previous one.

Feroze Khushi and Adam Rossington have been opening together for a while and will look to get off to a good start. Robin Das hit the winning run in the previous game, and he will look to add quick runs in the middle order alongside Matthew Critchley and Paul Walter. The team bats deep, led by Tom Westley, Daniel Sams, and Harmer.

Their bowlers struggled against Gloucestershire, conceding 195 runs. Harmer and Daniel Sams have a lot of experience, and their spells will put the team in a good position. Sam Cook and Ben Allison had a bad game and need to bowl better lines. In the supporting roles, Paul Walter, Shane Snater, and Critchley will have to perform admirably.

Full Squad:

Tom Westley, Nick Browne, Sir Alastair Cook, Samuel Cook, James Porter, Shane Snater, Paul Walter, Matt Critchley, Simon Harmer (South Africa), Doug Bracewell (New Zealand), Daniel Sams (Australia)

Sussex vs Essex Batsmen Worth Watching

Keeper-batter Michael Burgess has impressed with the Sharks since joining them on loan for this tournament, and he has contributed with the bat in both games. Ravi Bopara, who hit 51 not out against Surrey, will also be a key batter in this game.

Robin Das led the way in the win over Gloucestershire, scoring 69 runs off 33 balls in an innings that included 11 fours and two sixes. Feroze Khushi, who hit 34 runs off 14 balls, and Tom Westley, who made an unbeaten 31 off 23 balls, both made important contributions.

Sussex vs Essex Bowlers Worth Watching

Tymal Mills, an England international left-arm fast bowler, has been Sussex’s best bowler so far in the competition, with five wickets. In the win over Surrey, Ravi Bopara used all of his experience to take 3-18 from three overs.

Essex bowled well in their first match, with only Ben Allison and Shane Snater failing to take a wicket. Paul Walter and Daniel Sams each took two wickets, with Simon Harmer, Sam Cook, and Matt Critchley each taking one.

Sussex vs Essex Toss Prediction

This venue has already seen a high-scoring game. The team chasing goals has always had an advantage in this situation. At the toss, both captains will be thinking about this, and whoever wins will most likely choose to bowl first in this game.

Sussex vs Essex Pitch Report

The County Ground in Hove is a large venue, making it difficult for batsmen to easily clear the boundary ropes. Fast bowlers have done well here because the surface’s pace and bounce can put batsmen on the back foot. Spinners don’t get much out of the surface, but its slowness helps them.

On June 1, Hove would have partly cloudy skies. The wicket has been difficult at first, with the ball moving around as it did in the previous game. Batsmen must focus their eyes before beginning to play their strokes. The team that bats first would be satisfied with 170 runs.

Sussex vs Essex Prediction

Sussex Sharks won their last game, and they will be confident playing at home. The middle order, on the other hand, has been inconsistent in their two games and needs to improve its performance. Essex Eagles arrive with a convincing win and a good record at this venue. Their batsmen are in good form, giving them a slight advantage. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

Essex is the favourite to beat Sussex at the odds of 1.85.

Sussex vs Essex Most Recommended Player for Bet:
