Preview

After suffering a 12-runs defeat at the hands of Essex in their last match, Sussex will be keen to return to the winning ways when they battle against Surrey in an away fixture. When the two teams had locked horns earlier this season, the match got abandoned due to rain. In the match played before that, Surrey beat Sussex by 25 runs.

Top Picks

Hashim Amla will be the prime pick from Surrey. In the absence of Laurie Evans, he will have the responsibility of scoring the runs. Amla had a hit a half-century against Middlesex on Monday at Lord’s.

Delray Rawlins performed brilliantly against Essex. The all-rounder bowled 3 overs and returned with figures of 2/18, while he also scored a 20-ball 37 in the second innings.

All-rounder David Wiese will be another top pick from Sussex. The Proteas player has scored 231 runs in six games this year, with his average being 77.

Will Jacks looked in fine touch against Middlesex the other day. If the pitch plays the same way it did on Monday, Jacks can score many points in this contest. He can be a good option for your Dream11 fantasy side.
