MID vs SUS – T20 Blast – Team Previews
Middlesex has faced a disappointing campaign, as the team has struggled to find success under the leadership of Steve Eskinazi. Despite notable contributions from middle-order batsmen Max Holden, Ryan Higgins, and Jack Davies in recent matches, Middlesex has been unable to capitalize on their performances and secure victories.
The lack of substantial scores from opening batsman Joe Cracknell has added pressure on the middle order to deliver consistently. Bowlers Blake Cullen and Tom Helm have yet to find their rhythm, resulting in a dearth of regular wicket-taking opportunities for Middlesex. However, Josh de Caires and Luke Hollman have emerged as the most dependable bowlers for the team.
Sussex Sharks have encountered a challenging period since their opening triumph against Surrey at The Oval. They have suffered four consecutive defeats, primarily due to their batting struggles. Among the Sharks, Tom Alsop’s recent innings of 58 off 42 balls stands out as the sole fifty-plus score in their last four matches.
All-rounder Shadab Khan has failed to make a substantial impact with both his batting and bowling performances. Ravi Bopara, who was once a formidable contributor, has been grappling with a dip in form and finding it difficult to leave a mark.
While Sussex’s bowling, spearheaded by George Garton, Tymal Mills, and Nathan McAndrew, has shown glimpses of promise, the team needs a more consistent batting display to improve their overall performance.
