Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Vitality Blast T20 2019 - Sussex v Essex
The next south group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Essex and Sussex at the County Ground in Hove.
Sussex have been hit by the injury to pacer Ollie Robinson who has been ruled out of the tournament. Despite that, the team has the likes of Reece Topley and Chris Jordan to maintain their top spot.
Sussex have overtaken Kent to reach the top of the south group points table. They are with six wins and one loss from 10 games. They have had one tied game while two of their matches have ended with no results due to rain. Sussex have 15 points and a net run rate of +0.861.
Essex, on the other hand, are at the second last place in the points table with two wins and four losses from 10 games. A big downside for them is that four of their matches have been abandoned which is why the team has not got enough opportunities to display their potential. Essex have just eight points and a net run rate of -1.164.
Philip Salt is the top-scorer for Sussex with 271 runs from nine matches. Below him is Luke Wright with 266 runs from nine games. Reece Topley is the top wicket-taker for the team with 12 wickets from seven matches.
Cameron Delport has scored the most runs for Essex with 233 runs from seven matches. Fellow opener Tom Westley has also been good. Simon Harmer, Mohammad Amir and Adam Zampa will share the team's bowling load.
