Surrey vs Essex Eagles, Vitality T20 Blast 2020

After both teams saw their opening matches curtailed without a result because of the rain, Surrey take on Essex Eagles in the second match of the 2020 Vitality Blast. The match takes place at The Oval on August 30 and the live action starts at 14:00 local time.

Surrey are severely depleted in numbers due to injuries and international call-ups. Gus Atkinson, Dan Moriarty and James Taylor all made their T20 debuts last time out against Sussex Sharks. Gareth Batty led from the front with 2-17 from three overs before the rain last time out, however.

Essex Eagles, on the other hand, still have a strong squad available as they bid to become the first team to ever defend their title. Cameron Delport, Dan Lawrence and Simon Harmer are all among their key players.
