ESS vs GLA Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 16, 2019
Ten matches gone so far and the same result in all of them - such has been the case with Glamorgan in the tournament so far. It's been ironical that despite having a terrific batting lineup, it been their batting which has failed to fire for them. With not many matches to go, they no longer stand a chance to qualify for the playoffs but will be looking to play spoilsport for rest of the sides. They are set to face Essex Eagles in their upcoming match which is to be played at the County Ground in Chelmsford. Essex Eagles are the second team from the bottom, and they too are unlikely to qualify from here. A loss here would be a knockout punch for them.
ESS vs GLA Team Previews
While Essex Eagles haven't been at their best in the tournament so far, bad fortunes haven't helped them either. Their last match, which was a must-win encounter for them, was washed out due to inclement weather conditions as they had to settle for shared points with Middlesex Panthers.
Essex, who are with seven points to their name, had to stay content in sharing the points in three of their matches. With only a few games to go, they will be looking to win all of them and go as far in the tournament as possible.
Apart from poor performances, the Eagles have also suffered from injuries which has been one of the primary reasons for their poor dismal display. We expect their regular long-format bowler in Sam Cook to be included in the side which could also serve as a warm-up for their county fixture against Kent.

It has hardly ever happened that any team has lost so many losses in the tournament. Glamorgan have scripted history with such a poor performance and will be down on morale and confidence. They'd need individual brilliance to overcome this uphill battle on Friday.
Just like Essex, Glamorgan have also had three of their matches washed out due to rain, but considering the way they've played in the competition, those three points can be considered a bonus for them.
The addition of Fakhar Zaman was being considered to be game-changing for them, but he has been far from what he's capable of. This is his last game for them, and he will be looking to make a mark before flying back. Additionally, we may see Kiran Carlson included again in the side, provided he is deemed fit on the match day.

The two teams are placed at the bottom of the table, and not unlike the top of the table clashes, the bottom of the table clashes can be exciting to watch. Both the sides have had plenty of common in the tournament so far, but Essex have had that differentiating edge, which Glamorgan have lacked. Keeping that in mind, we believe that the Eagles are a better team to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
