Tom Westley (Essex Eagles) will be looking for some runs today

Today’s match between Sussex and Essex in the Royal London One Day Cup will be the final match for Sussex Sharks in the South Group of this year’s Royal London One-Day Cup and the penultimate for the Essex Eagles, at The Saffrons, Eastbourne.

Let’s take a look at the two teams and the online cricket betting odds and match prediction.

Sussex Sharks

26. Ben Brown (capt./wk), 22. Jofra Archer 21. Danny Briggs,  5. Michael Burgess, 32. Laurie Evans, 6.   Harry Finch, 20. Tom Haines, 8.   Chris Jordan, 25. Ollie Robinson, 11. Abi Sakande, 28. Phil Salt, 31. Luke Wells, 96. David Wiese, 10. Luke Wright

Jason Gillespie, the Sussex Head Coach selected a 14-man squad for the match and commented:

“With the bat, we got a lot of starts without a big score and with the ball we gave them too many easy opportunities to score runs.

 “We were out-hustled in the field, which is disappointing because that is something we pride ourselves on.

 “We will look to be better at all those things against Essex. We know they will be a tough side to beat and are relishing the challenge.”


Essex Eagles

Anthony McGrath, the Essex Head Coach, is aware that the Eagles have to win their remaining two matches if they are to have a chance of reaching the knockout stages, against the Sharks today and  Kent Spitfires, at Chelmsford, on Wednesday.

 “These two matches are Cup Finals really and for me, it’s about getting consistency in our performance,” he stated. “If we do that, the results will take care of themselves. We’ll go into the match against Sussex with the confidence we got from beating Glamorgan and the template we used and if we reproduce that on Sunday, I think we’ll be absolutely fine.”
