Warwickshire vs Essex Match Pitch Report
The wicket at Edgbaston, Birmingham will be full of runs. There will not be much on offer for the bowlers and big runs are likely to be scored in the match.
The surface tends to be flat and offers a good amount of pace and bounce, perfectly ideal for stroke play and high-scoring games. The batsmen can enjoy true bounce, making it easier to time their shots. In addition, the fast outfield makes sure that the well-placed shots reach the fence before any fielder.
However, the pitch tends to get a bit slower as the game goes by, which makes it difficult for stroke players. The Spinners might also come into play during the middle overs, getting everything on offer from the surface. Hence, the team winning the toss would like to bat first on this surface before the pitch faces any wear and tear.
What to expect:
Warwickshire: It has been so far, so good for the Bears. They have topped the South Group points table with eleven wins and only three losses. They put up a good show in their last league game, defending a small total and winning by 8 runs against Durham Cricket. Alex Davies would look to drive this momentum and win this game to make their way into the semifinal.
Alex Davies and Robert Yates have started well in the tournament, and the pair will look to deliver a steady start in this game. Sam Hain has been the most consistent batter for the side this year, and he must bat well in the middle order with Chris Benjamin and Glenn Maxwell. Dan Mousley, Chris Benjamin, Jacob Bethell, and Chris Woakes make this batting line-up formidable.
The side will expect a good spell from Chris Woakes and Henry Brookes with the new ball and put the Eagles on the back foot. Dan Mousley has been the highest wicket-taker for the side, and he must do well with Danny Briggs in the middle overs. They will also expect a good show from Craig Miles in the supporting role.
Probable XI: Alex Davies (c & wk), Robert Yates, Glenn Maxwell, Sam Hain, Dan Mousley, Chris Benjamin, Jacob Bethell, Henry Brookes, Jake Lintott, Oliver Hannon-Dalby/Hasan Ali, Dominic Drakes
Warwickshire Squad: Chris Benjamin, Alex Davies, Michael Burgess, Sam Hain, Moeen Ali (c), Glenn Maxwell, Chris Woakes, Paul Stirling, Dan Mousley, Jacob Bethell, Ed Barnard, Che Brendon Simmons, Hasan Ali, Danny Briggs, Ethan Brookes, Henry Brookes, George Garrett, Oliver Hannon-Dalby, Manraj Johal, Jacob Lintott, Craig Miles, Liam Norwell
Essex: Simon Harmer’s side put up a good show when it mattered the most to earn a berth in the quarterfinal. They defeated Surrey by 3 wickets, ending their four-game losing spree. The side faces a tough challenge against the Bears, who are in great form. Harmer shall like his players to stick to the basics and do well in this game.
Daniel Lawrence played well in the last game and will look to deliver a positive start in this game alongside Adam Rossington. Michael-Kyle Pepper has been in good form, and he must add runs in the middle order with Feroz Khushi and Paul Walter. They have depth in their batting and expect runs from Matthew Critchley, Daniel Sams, and Harmer.
Daniel Sams was expensive in the last game, and he must bowl a tight spell with the new ball with Aaron Beard to grab early wickets. Critchley did well in the last game and must deliver good spells in the middle overs with Sam Cook and Harmer. The side will also need a good show in the supporting role from Shane Snater and Paul Walter.
Probable XI: Adam Rossington (wk), Michael-Kyle Pepper, Feroze Khushi, Robin Das, Paul Walter, Matthew Critchley, Daniel Sams, Simon Harmer (c), Shane Snater, Aaron Beard, Sam Cook
Essex Squad: Simon Harmer (c, South Africa), Ben Allison, Aaron Beard, Luc Benkenstein, Nick Browne, Will Buttleman, Alastair Cook, Sam Cook, Matt Critchley, Robin Das, Eshun Kalley, Feroze Khushi, Dan Lawrence, Aron Nijjar, Michael Pepper, Jamie Porter, Jamal Richards, Adam Rossington, Josh Rymell, Daniel Sams (Australia), Shane Snater, Paul Walter, Tom Westley
Warwickshire vs Essex Match Winner
Warwickshire vs Essex Match Prediction
Warwickshire is the clear favorite to win the game. The team is on a winning run and has won their last seven matches on the trot. The good thing about Warwickshire is that they have chased big scores and defended low scores. In the last game against Durham, the team won the match despite scoring just 141 runs. Essex, on the other hand, has been inconsistent, losing four of the last five matches.
Warwickshire vs Essex Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Dan Mousley has been the team’s best bowler with 20 wickets in the tournament so far. Henry Brooks also showed great form in the last game and picked 3 wickets for just 15 runs. Another bowler who is likely to do well is Dominic Drakes, who is a very good new ball bowler and is capable of ripping apart a batting lineup.
Daniel Sams with 22 wickets this season will be a key bowler for Essex along with Matthew Critchley, who took a five-wicket haul against Middlesex, and Sam Cook, who has been below par so far but is a very good bowler.
Warwickshire vs Essex Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Robert Yates has been in fine form, scoring fifties in the last four games. He will be the top choice for the team’s best batter. Along with Yates, Dan Mousley and Glenn Maxwell will be other key batters. Even though the players have been inconsistent, they are match-winners on their day.
Essex will rest their hopes on Adam Rossington, Michael Pepper, and Matthew Critchley. Pepper is the only batter who has been consistent for Essex, scoring 75 in the last game, but Rossington and Critchley are also good batters who will be eyeing a good show in the must-win game.
