SUR Vs SUS Dream11 Team: While Surrey will be high on confidence ahead of this game having secured an emphatic victory over Middlesex the other day, Sussex lost against Essex in their previous outing and they will be really keen to get their campaign back on track as they take on Surrey tonight.
These two teams were scheduled to play on 28th of last month as well, but the game had to be called off before the completion of the first innings because of rain.
It’s a South Group match and will start at 11:00 PM IST. The weather forecast is not alarming for the day. It might be partly cloudy, but the humidity and the precipitation are not that high and it shouldn’t be a curtailed game.
After a bit of a shaky start in the initial stages of the tournament, Surrey has now moved up to the top of the South Group points table with 4 back to back victories.
Sussex has also won 4 games out of 7, but they have lost 2 as well, as compared to Surrey’s one defeat and are currently positioned at no. 3 in the South Group standings.
The match will be played at Kennington Oval, London. The average first innings score at this venue batting first in T20 cricket is 150, while the average second innings score is 133. However, if it’s a flat pitch, the captain winning the toss might still want to chase.
SUR Vs SUS Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
Surrey has got a really exciting batting lie-up with class and power combined. And, they have got some really skillful players with the ball as well. So, they are probably a better balanced side, but Sussex can’t be written off because of the experience they have in their squad.
Quite a few players in the Sussex squad have been seasoned campaigners in English cricket and they know how to get the job done. However, Surrey, on the basis of quality, goes into this game as favorites.
SUR playing 11 (expected): Hashim Amla, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Ben Foakes (WK), Rory Burns, Jamie Smith, Jamie Overton, Gus Atkinson, Daniel Moriarty, Gareth Batty (C), Reece Topley
SUS playing 11 (expected): Luke Wright (C), Aaron Thomason, Calum MacLeod, Delray Lawrins, David Wiese, Ravi Bopara, George Garton, Ben Brown (WK), Ollie Robinson, Danny Briggs, Tymal Mills
Luke Wright: The skipper Luke Wright has been very consistent for Sussex as he is one of the only three players in the tournament who has scored more than 300 runs so far. In the 7 innings that he has played, Wright has scored 305 runs at an average of 43.57 and a strike rate of 150.24.
Hashim Amla: Amla missed the first couple of games for Surrey, but as he has joined the squad, he has looked in supreme touch every time he has batted. Amla is the highest scorer for Surrey in Vitality Blast 2020 as he has piled on 182 runs in 5 games, averaging 36.40 with the bat.
Laurie Evans: Laurie Evans was struggling a little bit with his form in the first few games, but he seems to be regaining his form now and he is such a dangerous player in the top order that if he gets his eye in, he can smash any bowling attack in the tournament.
David Wiese: David Wiese has probably been the best finisher in the Vitality Blast 2020 so far. Despite batting at a very tricky position down the order, Wiese is averaging over 75 with the bat and is striking the ball at a rate of more than 150 runs per 100 balls.
