THE LOWDOWN

Middlesex’s last Bob Willis Trophy outing was disrupted by rain and ultimately ended in a draw with Kent. Sussex meanwhile, fell to defeat against South Group leaders Essex by three wickets, although they pushed the reigning County Champions to the limit, with bowling figures of 9-76 for left arm fast bowler George Garton the standout performance of the match.

THE PREDICTION

This is a must win game for both sides in order to keep their hopes of topping the South Group alive. A result pitch should be prepared at Radlett, but Sussex will once again be without bowler Ollie Robinson due to England duty alongside Jofra Archer. Having lost their last two games, confidence may also be an issue for Sussex and Middlesex look set to take advantage here, securing victory in what should be a close fought match.
