The points table in South Group of Vitality T20 Blast has turned out to be rather unexpected with a couple of teams, who were expected to do well, sitting in the bottom half of the ladder. Glamorgan did pretty well last year, but have failed to get anywhere close to that this time around. They are languishing at the floor of the points table and are yet to win a match. Up against them in their next match will be Esses Eagles, who showed a bit of spark in a couple of games, but have, by and large, been dismal. It's a little too tight for both the sides to qualify from here, but they'd still like to register wins here and get to an as better position as they can in the points table.
No one expected Glamorgan to play as bad as they've done this year. They've played seven matches so far, and they haven't even looked convincing in any one of those, let alone winning it. They've been part of seven games so far, and the best they've done is leveling the scores in one of their matches.
While it's been their batting which has failed them, their bowling, too, hasn't really been exceptional. Their bowlers have performed at par with what was expected of them, at best. As has been the case with them in the tournament so far, Glamorgan lost their previous match, primarily because of their poor batting as they could score a total of 146 runs, losing nine wickets in the process, on a surface that had nothing in it for the bowlers.
Barring David Llyod, who played a fifty-run knock at the top of the order, none of their batsmen looked settled in the middle as they kept losing wickets one after the other. Fakhar Zaman once again looked uncomfortable at the crease and was dismissed after playing a laborious knock of 9 runs off 14 deliveries.
Defending such a would never have taken the bigger pie of the probability, and hence it happened. None of their bowlers looked confidence in their defense as Sussex Sharks chased down the total with more than six overs to spare and nine wickets in hand.
It was a deflating defeat for Glamorgan in their previous match, and that match sums up the story of the tournament for them. With both batting as well as bowling faltering, it would take a colossal effort from them to get back to the winning ways, and things aren't going to be easy for them going forward.

Unlike Glamorgan, Essex Eagles have had at least something going for them in the tournament so far. Their openers have been in great form with the bat, and they both have single-handedly won them a couple of games in total.
They are currently placed at the seventh spot on the points table with two wins and four losses to their name. They had to share points in one of their matches, which was washed out due to rain.
They are coming into this match on the back of a poor performance in their last game wherein they lost the game by a massive margin of 114, hurting their net run-rate badly. Their net run-rate, -1.164, is now the second-worst at the ladder, worse only than Glamorgan's.
Mohammad Amir had been a brilliant bowler for them up until their match against Somerset wherein he was smashed to all part of the ground and conceded 44 runs in his four overs. Except for Ravi Bopara, who bowled a magical spell of 18 for 3 in his four overs. The rest of the bowlers gave away 207 runs in 16 overs which allowed Somerset to rack up a total which was always going to be out of reach of Essex batsmen.
In the tournament up until their last match, Essex's batting had mainly been about their opening batsmen. Tom Westley and Cameron Delport had a terrific competition and were coming off from a good innings each. They, however, failed to convert their start to a big score as pressure continued to mount on them with the required run-rate rising every over. Wheater and Lawrence tried to put up a fight, but their effort proved to be too minuscule in the context as they were eventually dismantled for a total of 111 runs.

It's going to be an exciting battle between the two sides placed in the bottom half of the points table. While Essex Eagles have had a few moments to cheer about, Glamorgan have had none. The two teams are almost equivalent on paper, and there's nothing to separate them. Having said that, Essex Eagles have done better, only slightly though, as compared to Glamorgan in the tournament so far and are firm favorites to hand Glamorgan their sixth defeat of the tournament on Friday.
