Middlesex and Sussex Sharks face off in the T20 Vitality Blast at Lord’s Cricket Ground in London on Tuesday. Sussex Sharks Luke Wright was in magnificent form in their last match when he scored 82 from 55 balls. 

Middlesex Form


Middlesex reached the quarter-final of the T20 blast in 2019 but lost by 10 wickets to the Nottingshire Outlaws.

So far in the 2020 campaign, they have seen their first match rained out in a game they would likely have won. Middlesex put up a score of 184/5 against the Essex Eagles as Max Holden scored a 102 not out of 60 balls before the rain put paid to the clash as the start for the Essex chase.

In their second match, they tied with Kent as both sides ended on 209 after Middlesex had batted first. Middlesex's Stevie Eskinazi had registered his best T20 score as he hit 84 from 52 balls but Kent could not get the six runs needed from the final over to take victory.

Middlesex News


Middlesex are expected to stick with the side that has performed so well with the bat in their first two matches.

Sussex Sharks Form


Sussex Sharks finished at the top of their Vitality Blast group in the 2019 season. The team ended the group stage with 8 wins and 3 losses from their 14 matches. They lost their quarter-final against Worcestershire.

In their first match this campaign, they looked in trouble at 116/5 after 15.2 overs when the rain brought play to a premature end.

In Sussex Shark’s second match, they found themselves chasing Hampshire’s 176/5 by reaching 177/4 with a ball to spare. They nearly threw the game away in the final over but Luke Wright’s 82 from 55 balls and a calm 43 not out from David Wiese saw the team to victory.

Sussex Sharks News


Sussex Sharks will be without Reece Topley for this match as he is a reserve for England’s T20 internationals against Pakistan. He took 17 wickets in 11 matches last year so Tymal Mills will spearhead their attack.

The most recent match between the teams saw the Sussex Sharks win by 8 wickets. The Rapids batted first and posted 171/5. The Steelbacks chased it down and ended the match on 172/2.
