Glamorgan played their opening match away from home against Gloucestershire. In that match, they were down and out but Marnus Labuschagne kept them in the hunt until the last over. They fell short by just four runs. Now, they will face Essex at home in Cardiff.

Essex have had a slightly disappointing season so far. In the first match, they somehow sneaked in with a three-wicket win against Somerset. In their second match, they lost against Hampshire. It is now time for them to stage a comeback.

Pitch Report:

Sophia Gardens generally serves up a great pitch for batting. Any score can turn out to be difficult to defend on this surface. Having said that, the boundaries are awkwardly positioned making the contest between the bat and the ball slightly balanced.

GLA vs ESS Risky Captaincy Choices:

Ryan ten Doeschate has not been batting really well in the last few matches. He doesn’t bowl these days, which makes him quite a one-dimensional player. That being said, he will be a risky captaincy pick.

Player you should avoid:

David Lloyd has not been in the best of form lately. He has not crossed fifty in some time now and it is better to avoid him.
