Essex will host Sussex at the Chelmsford County Ground in Essex in the 79th match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022 on June 17.
Essex have been a pretty dominant side in the Vitality Blast so far this season. They have won four of their eight matches so far while one game has ended without a result. With nine points and a net run rate of +0.546, they are third in the table. What’s comforting for Essex is the fact that they have won two of their last three matches and will be looking to build momentum here.
Sussex, meanwhile, have won three matches but have gone on to lose five of their eight matches. They have gathered six points and are sixth in the table. Sussex are level on points with Middlesex but are ahead on the basis of net run rate. Sussex have lost their last three matches in a row and getting back to form will be the number 1 priority for them here.

Sussex took on Gloucestershire in their most recent Vitality Blast match and fell short by four runs. The likes of Delray Rawlin and Obed McCoy were ablet to restrict the opposition to 145/6, but they proved to be ineffective with the bat.
Besides Tom Alsop, who scored 82 off 52, nobody else was able to cross the 20-run mark and Sussex ended up suffering a total collapse. They lost their final wicket in the final over and fell just short of the target.

Matt Critchley will be the primary pick for the man of the match award. He has been outrageous and is the leading run-scorer as well as the highest wicket-taker for his side. He will be expected to continue with the same form.
The surface here is suited to batting, especially in domestic T20 cricket. Scores above 170 are quite common and pacers will also enjoy swing with the new ball. The average first innings score here is 172.
Partly cloudy skies are expected on the day of the match with 15% chances in precipitation. Strong winds, blowing at up to 26 km/h are also expected. The temperature could vary between 22 and 29 degrees Celsius.
The side winning the toss should look to bowl first. Dew factor could prove to be decisive during the run-chase and more matches have been won by sides bowling first.
