ESS vs HAM Match & Analysis

The action in the Vitality T20 Blast 2021 continues as Essex and Hampshire get ready to face off against each other. Both teams have played one match already with contrasting results. While Essex chased down a stiff total against a strong team, Hampshire suffered a batting failure and was never really in the game.

Winning momentum can be a very real thing in the T20 Blast and teams can sometimes fall behind without even realizing it. We are sure Hampshire realizes this and would like to change things around quickly.

Match Prediction and cricket betting tips for Essex vs Hampshire Vitality T20 Blast 2021. The match is going to be played at the County Ground, Chelmsford on the 11th of June 2021.

ESS vs HAM Team Previews


Essex pulled off a bit of heist against Somerset in its previous match. First, its bowling was able to keep picking up regular wickets to keep the target within reason, and then its batsmen put together a wonderful chase.

Simon Harmer and Samuel Cook were the outstanding performers with the ball while Jimmy Neesham starred with the bat.

There are a lot of things to like about this Essex team. Adam Wheater and Tom Westley are going to go hard at the bowling upfront followed by Michael-Kyle Pepper, Paul Walter, and Ryan Ten Doeschate with Jimmy Neesham to follow.

This is a strong and powerful batting lineup with a fair bit of experience as well. If Westley is able to get some runs under his belt, as we think he might, then Essex should be able to get big scores regularly. The aggressive nature of the batsmen could also see a couple of collapses along the way, though.

Look for betting markets with the total number of Sixes for Essex and bet the ‘Over’.

The spinners are the heart of the Essex bowling attack with the pace bowling being average at best. Simon Harmer and Samuel Cook are in good form and there is nothing wrong with riding that wave and backing one or both of them to be the highest wicket-taker in this match.

Hampshire’s batting is not as bad as its previous match seemed to indicate. James Vince, Darcy Short, Sam Northeast, and even Liam Dawson are all very good players. They were taken by surprise in the previous match as Daren Stevens and Fred Klaassen ran through their batting.

We think a strong comeback is very possible against an Essex bowling attack that is not very strong.

Darcy Short was striking the ball beautifully in the previous match before he got out and he could be one of the players to back in this match to make some runs.

Hampshire’s bowling itself is not the strongest. It is very spin-heavy with Mason Crane and Liam Dawson at the heart of their plans. Even Darcy Short is very effective with his wrist-spinners and is going to turn his arm over in most matches.

Wood, Holland, and Wheal need to lift their games a little to help balance out the attack.

ESS vs HAM Toss Prediction

Winning the toss and fielding first has become a sort of mantra in T20 cricket. Essex chased down a big total in its previous match and so expect it to do the same if it wins the toss.

Pitch and Conditions

The weather forecast for match day is very good in Chelmsford. There should be no rain or other weather-related interruptions that stop play. The pitch should be flat and good to bat on with a bit of something in it for the spinners.

The surface can be a bit sluggish on occasions but the short boundaries tend to compensate for that.

A high-scoring match is likely.

ESS vs HAM Betting Tips

We are going to back the underdog in this match. Hampshire has a good batting lineup and one bad performance does not mean that we lose faith in it. Both teams are pretty evenly matched in all aspects of the game. We are going to chase the odds in this match.

Bet on Hampshire to win.
