PredictionWin Prediction



On July 2, 2023, the Surrey and Essex will square off in match 121 of the Vitality Blast 2023 at the Oval Cricket Ground in Kennington, London.

With the goal of physiologically defeating their opponent at the end of the first inning, Surrey had recently posted some phenomenal totals in face-offs, and this tactic had been very successful for them. Their openers had combined to score 432 runs in the last five innings, which means that over 50% of the runs were contributed by them. As a result, the middle-order batters have found a brilliant stage to explore and score some valuable quick runs in the end overs. In their bowling department, world-class all-rounder Sam Curran is the head of their pace attack, underpinned by Chris Jordan. As a team, they claim a decent rate of 5 wickets per game. Importantly, they will look to continue their winning momentum.

Essex's defence has seen a downfall in the previous five games as they failed to defend four out of five targets on occasions, even after posting some massive totals on the board. Salute to their batting department, which consistently posted 180 to 200 plus scores in their recent clashes but all went in vain. The incomplete spells and unsettled bowling attack saw only a few positive contributions from Matt Critchley, who claimed seven wickets in the recent two games. As a bowling attack, they terribly failed to defend those wonderful totals, and it directly impacted their results. Therefore, the opponent may have a plan to exploit their weak bowling line-up.
