The next south group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Essex and Middlesex at the County Ground in Chelmsford. 


Middlesex have put up a good show in the ongoing season of the Vitality Blast and are placed at the second spot in the points table. With six wins and three losses from nine games, they have 12 points and net run rate of +0.724.


The performances of Essex have not been that good as the team finds itself at the seventh spot in the points table, with two wins and four losses from eight games. Two of their matches have been rained off as a result of which, the team has six points and a net run rate of -1.164.

Skipper Cameron Delport has scored the most runs for Essex with 233 runs from seven matches at an average of 35 and a strike rate of over 180 and has the top score of 129. Tom Westley has also been good with 211 runs from seven matches at an average of 42 and a strike rate of over 140.

Mohammad Amir and Adam Zampa are the high profile names in their bowling order.

Middlesex will feel the absence of AB de Villiers, who has departed and will return only for the last couple of group matches and knockout games. In his absence, Dawid Malan remains the team's highest run-scorer with 377 from nine matches at an average of over 50 and strike rate of close to 150.

Steven Finn's recent five-wicket haul has taken him on the second spot in the highest wicket-takers tally with 17 scalps. Toby Roland-Jones is next to him with 16 wickets.

Essex- Tom Westley, Cameron Delport, Adam Wheater, Daniel Lawrence, Ryan ten Doeschate, Ravi Bopara, Paul Walter, Simon Harmer, Mohammad Amir, Aaron Beard, Adam Zampa
