Essex vs Yorkshire Predictions

Essex have been in fine form and have plenty of international experience within their side. With Alastair Cook and Feroze Khushi scoring runs my best bet is for Essex to advance from this match.

  • Essex’s Alastair Cook scored 110 runs in his last match.
  • Essex’s Feroze Khushi has scored 77 & 109 runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • Essex have won 5 of their last 8 matches.
  • Yorkshire’s Jonathan Tattersall has scored 50+ runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.

Head to Head

Yorkshire have won three of their last five matches against Exxex. They last met in June 2014 where Yorkshire won by 25 runs.

Essex Form

Essex finished the round robin stage of the Royal London One Day Cup in second place in Group 2. During the campaign Essex won five of their eight matches with one tie and two defeats.

Essex have won three of their last five games while their last round robin match ended in a tie against Lancashire. Lancs batted first in Manchester and scored 250 runs, a pretty good total on a wicket that offered the bowlers something.

Experienced Dutch allrounder, Ryan ten Doeschate was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-33 in eight overs.

Former England captain, Alastair Cook anchored the Essex chase, scoring 110 off 128 balls. Unfortunately no one else gave Essex momentum with the bat until a late flurry of boundaries by Simon Harmer. In the end the scores were tied at they shared the spoils.

Essex Injuries & Team News

Essex have a very settled lineup and plenty of experience. The introduction of Feroze Khushi in the middle order has worked wonders while Alastair Cook found his form in the last match.

Yorkshire Form

Yorkshire finished third in Group 1 but it was a very tight affair. The top three sides all ended on 10 points with only net run rate to separate the sides.

It was a strong end to the season for Yorkshire as they won their last three completed matches. Unfortunately rain also had its say with two of their last six matches called off.

Yorkshire’s last match was a thrilling encounter which they won by four runs against Glamorgan in Cardiff. Batting first Yorkshire posted 230 runs with Jonathan Tattersall top scoring with 53 runs.

Despite a 121-run opening partnership by Glamorgan, Yorkshire came back superbly through George Hill who took 3-49. It was a superb bowling effort to take the narrow win after the start Glamorgan got.

Yorkshire Injuries & Team News

Yorkshire are unlikely to be looking to make changes for a knock-out game but they have been struggling for runs. The top order have shown no consistency in the second half of the campaign, something Yorkshire will need to sort out ahead of this match.

Essex are backed to win this match with their batsmen in fine form, in particular Feroze Khushi. He has scored 77 and 109 runs in two of his last three knocks and can be Essex's top scorer here.

Yorkshire's top order has misfired recently. It has been left to Jonathan Tattersall to score the runs so we're backing him to top score for them.
