GLA vs ESS Match & Dream 11 Prediction, Betting Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Analysis - Aug 07, 2018

Glamorgan is coming into this match on the back of a comprehensive win against Middlesex. They are right in the thick of things when it comes to the fight for the quarter-finals and three wins from their last three matches suggest that they are peaking at the right time. Glamorgan will be taking on Essex, a team that has stumbled from one defeat to another and has just one win to its name from nine matches so far.

Glamorgan will know better than to take Essex lightly in this match. Essex has some quality players and has reached a stage where it must do something drastic to change its fortunes around.

GLA vs ESS Team Previews


An unchanged side from the last win will face Essex at home. Interestingly, Glamorgan has never won against Essex in T20 cricket while playing on home soil! The team will be looking to change that around this year, though, as it carries some excellent form into the encounter.

Currently, at fifth place on the table with one game in hand, Glamorgan will push for a top-4 spot by winning this game. Colin Ingram, their most important batsman, returned from illness in the last game to score an unbeaten 46 and should be primed to take on Essex.

Ingram, Cooke, Carlson, and Donald are a pretty strong batting unit and will be a handful for the struggling Essex bowling attack. Glamorgan will be disappointed that only four fifties in total have been recorded from their team this season but will take heart from the fact that contributions have come from a lot of different people in the squad.

Smith bowled the most economical spell in Glamorgan’s history in the last match as he recorded figures of four wickets for six runs against a decent Middlesex batting lineup. Smith, van der Gugten, Wagg, and Hogan will be the bowlers that try and keep Essex at the bottom of the table and deny them another win.

The only positive thing about Essex’s campaign this season has the form of Varun Chopra. The prolific opener has scored four fifties in the tournament but has seen his side fail to capitalize on those starts repeatedly. With 346 runs to his name, he is miles ahead of anyone else on his team. In fact, no other person has scored a fifty for Essex in the tournament so far.

The contributions from players like Westley, Bopara, ten Doeschate and the other batters have simply not been good enough for more success at this level. Can the previous successful record of Essex in Cardiff spark something within this team? We are not too hopeful about it.

Like Varun Chopra, Adam Zampa has stood out for Essex in the bowling department. His 12 wickets have come at an excellent economy rate of 7.74 but the fact that the next best bowler has 4 wickets to his name has held Essex back.

Harmer, Wagner, Bopara and Zaidi all need to do better to try and support Zampa. The bowling attack is actually not too bad and should be able to give Glamorgan a tough time. It is the batting that has let Essex down so many times this summer.

The Essex team has been outclassed in all three departments of the game. A season like this can sap the motivation from the side and it will require some individual brilliance to pick them up.

Pitch and Conditions

A very slight chance of rain has been forecast in Cardiff for this match. The pitch in Cardiff always has a little something in it for the bowlers. The ground is a decent size and mishits will not go for sixes like in other grounds. The better batting side usually emerges winners on this ground.

A score of around 170 can be considered par.

GLA vs ESS Betting Tips

The first match between Glamorgan and Essex this season was a tightly fought contest that Glamorgan won off the last ball. We think that Essex is in too poor a state to continue its winning run at Cardiff and are backing Glamorgan to win its first T20 match against Essex at home.

Back Glamorgan to win.
