After winning their opening two matches of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023, Essex have lost their last two games to Hampshire Hawks by 118 runs and Somerset by 11 runs. They come into this game against the Sharks in 6th place but with games in hand on other sides.
Batting at number three, Michael Pepper top scored with 63 runs from 43 balls in the defeat against Somerset in a poor performance with the bat by Essex as they were dismissed for 139. Robin Das hit 100 runs from the opening two games of the tournament but has not made a significant score since.
Although the batters were unable to take Essex to victory in their last game, it was a strong bowling performance as Somerset were dismissed for 150. The six-man bowling unit all chipped in with at least one wicket with no one going at more than 9.66 runs per over.
Essex are hoping to avoid their third successive defeat in this game. They will need to play far better than their last match in Chelmsford when they lost by 118 runs.
Adam Rossington (wk), Robin Das, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Matthew Critchley, Paul Walter, Tom Westley, Daniel Sams, Simon Harmer (c), Shane Snater, Ben Allison, Sam Cook

This promises to be a very interesting game with both teams coming into the match in poor form and in desperate need of some points in the South Group. Although they were well beaten in their last home fixture, looking at both teams, Essex have better players across the batting and bowling. We are backing Essex to win.
