Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Vitality Blast T20 2019 - Surrey v Essex
The next south group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Surrey and Essex at the Kennington Oval in London.
Surrey won their last match against Somerset courtesy of an unbeaten stroke-field century from Aaron Finch to remain alive in the Vitality Blast. They have now jumped to the sixth place in the south group points table with five wins and six losses from 13 matches.
Surrey have have had a tied game and one of their matches was abandoned due to rain, which is why the team has a net run rate of -0.1 79. They will now have to win their last match and also expect the results of other teams to go their way as they hope to make it to the quarter finals. However, the downside for them is that they have already played 13 matches while some of the other team still have two matches to go.
Surrey will be facing Essex who are placed two notches below them but have an opportunity of trumping them with successive wins. Courtesy of four washed out games, Essex have 11 points and are only one point behind Surrey.
They have had three wins and four losses from 12 matches and have a net run rate of -0.75. If they win both of their last two matches, given that their competitors lose, they still have a chance of sneaking in at the fourth place.
Tom Westley and Cameron Delport are the leading batsmen for Essex while Simon Harmer and Mohammad Amir are their top bowlers
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Surrey- Aaron Finch, Mark Stoneman, Sam Curran, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes, Will Jacks, Jordan Clark, Ryan Patel, Jade Dernbach, Gareth Batty, Imran Tahir
