Essex Eagles finally managed to get off the base of the South Group points table with a much-needed win over Sussex Sharks. The win kept them alive for the quarter-final race, but they'd now have to not only win all their remaining contests but also need some other results to go their way. Up next in the tournament are they set to take on Hampshire, who are in a pretty similar position as Essex. Hampshire, however, have only a hypothetical chance to go through to the next round. The match between the two sides is to be played at The Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Southampton, on Wednesday, 16th September 2020.
Hampshire are sitting just a spot below Essex Eagles with three points to their name in seven matches. Although they still have an outside chance to qualify, the chance is mathematical at best. To qualify, Hampshire would not only need to win their remaining games but also do that with massive margins to boost their net run-rate. Hampshire's current net run-rate is -0.55.
With a win in their first two matches, Hampshire got off to a reasonably good start. All they needed was to register a couple of good wins to stay in the hunt, but they failed to emerge on top even once in five matches.
Hampshire's recent loss to Kent Spitfire would have further demolished Hants' confidence considering the kind of drubbing they got. Defending a total of 182, Hampshire failed to put any dents whatsoever as Kent cruised to overhaul their total with significant ease. Batting first, Hampshire did well to get to a total of 182, which was far from ideal, but a good bowling effort could have made the game interesting. Their bowling, however, never looked threatening as none of their bowlers gave runs away at an economy rate of less than nine.
Hampshire have been listless so far with their batting as well as their bowling both being inconsistent. Perhaps the only positive that Hampshire would have drawn from their last outing was the performance of their batting, which finally appeared to have some sort of a plan. Going forward in the tournament, Hampshire's batting would have to take advantage of its form and if their bowlers can complement their batsmen, it won't be surprising if Hampshire managed to get some consolation wins.

Eagles may have climbed up a step on the ladder with their win over Sharks, they are still a long way from their final destination - that is a quarter-final spot. They are currently languishing at the second spot from the bottom with one win from seven matches.
It was Dan Lawrence's fantastic effort that got Essex their win over Sussex Sharks. Lawrence led the Eagles charge on a good batting surface as he contributed with a well-made 81 to take Essex to 197. He came back in the second innings as well, picking up two important wickets just when the momentum was beginning to shift towards the Sharks.
While Dan Lawrence's knock would certainly give confidence to the Essex's management, the lack of contribution from the other batsmen would raise concern as well. Cameron Delport, Ryan ten Doeschate, and Paul Walter all failed to contribute on a good flat deck. Having said that, their batting still looks good on paper, and the brief cameos from Tom Westley, Michael Pepper, and Simon Harmer should inspire the other to do well too.
Given the batting Sussex Sharks have, it was never going to be easy to defend a total. Even though a few of Essex bowlers proved expensive, it was a pretty good effort from them. Simon Cook led their charge with the ball, picking up two wickets and expending runs at an economy rate of 8.33 in his 3 overs. Simon Harmer, who had been in a decent form, was carted away to all parts to the ground as he gave away 43 runs. The match, however, was turned by Lawrence's over, in which he got rid of Aaron Thomason and Delray Rawlins, who staged a wonderful partnership together before getting dismissed.
Essex Eagles was never a bad team on paper. However, they lacked the hunger and the desire to emerge on top up until their last match. With nothing to lose and everything to play for, Essex looked to be at their best in the previous match and if they play to their potential in the upcoming match as well, Hampshire will certainly have their work cut out.

With a quarter-final position at stake, the importance of this game cannot be overstated. Not for the Eagles, at least. Hampshire, too, will be coming hard to redeem their lost pride and to bow out of the competition on a high. Both sides have had a dismal run so far and separating them on the basis of performances would not be ideal. Having said that, Essex would be brimming with confidence with their inspiring win over Sussex Sharks, and that, we believe, will be enough to push them hard. With all the above-stated factors in mind, betting on an Essex win should be the way to go in this upcoming fixture.
