THE PREDICTION

Both these sides are yet to win a Vitality Blast match this season. Middlesex’s most recent game ended in defeat at home to Sussex Sharks at Lords, whilst reigning champions Essex Eagles also lost at home to Hampshire. Middlesex currently sit below Essex on net run-rate, but will be confident of overtaking them here. With home advantage in their favour and a young batting line-up that has shown real promise so far in the competition, Middlesex should narrowly edge out the Eagles here, who as predicted, have struggled in the Vitality Blast this year following the departure of Ravi Bopara in the off-season.
