Sussex are sitting comfortably at the top of South Group points table with their match against Hampshire in progress. They are set to lock horns with Surrey who are currently playing against Essex. The two teams will lock horns on 13th July at Kia Oval, London in what will be the second respective match of their back to back matches. Unlike Sussex, Surrey are languishing at the bottom of the table and another loss for them will make it extremely difficult for them to climb up the ladder.
Not Unlike Surrey, Sussex, too, are playing a match today, against Hampshire. They managed to restrict Hampshire to a modest total of 157, thanks to some excellent bowling from Rashid Khan, Jofra Archer, and Danny Briggs. Briggs picked up three crucial wickets including that of Colin Munro, Sam Northeast, and Rilee Rossouw. While their bowlers did a good job to restrict Hampshire to a subpar total, their batsmen were required to get them off to a good start and they did not disappoint.
At the time of writing, Sussex were 65 with only Phillip Salt in the pavilion. Their heroes of the previous match, Luke Wright, and Laurie Evans were on the crease with their respective personal scores of 33 and 6.
The Sharks have one of the most talented bowling lineups in the competition and it was on display against one of the best batting teams in the competition, Hampshire. The trio of Rashid Khan, Danny Briggs, and Jofra Archer has been difficult to deal with in the matches Sussex have played so far. Will Beer has done well in the limited opportunities he's got so far. With a sound batting lineup and one of the best bowling lineup, the Sharks will certainly be the team to beat in this competition.

Surrey's campaign in the tournament prior to their third game against Essex has been nothing short of horrendous. They've played two matches - one against Kent, and other against Middlesex, and have lost both. They, however, did extremely well with the bat in their third match against Essex. They scored 222 while batting first and looked well set to defend it with Essex needing 120 off last nine overs at the time of writing.
Despite a superb batting lineup with the likes of Aaron Finch, Nic Maddinson, and Ben Foakes, their effort with the bat in first two matches was a surprise. Although Aaron Finch's rare failures contributed to this, it was only limited. Against Essex, Aaron Finch and Ben Foakes were the chief architects of the tall total they posted before Essex.
Surrey's bowling appears to be sharp with Jade Dernbach leading the team and the attack. The Curran brothers, Sam and Tom, will be vital to Surrey's campaign as they do not have calls from England national team to deal with. Their pace attack is strengthened by the addition of Morne Morkel under Kolpak deal which has allowed Surrey to play someone else as their overseas player. Gareth Batty has been around for a while and his experience will be key for them considering the way spinners have performed in the tournament so far.
Surrey's performance increased manifolds are a terrible show in their first two games. They, in all probability, should win their third match to rise up the table and if they continue to play like they did in their third match, we'll be in for a cracker of a match.
Rory Burns, Aaron Finch, Ben Foakes, Nic Maddinson, Ollie Pope, Sam Curran, Rikki Clarke, Scott Borthwick, MW Pillans, Gareth Batty, Jade Dernbach.
Unless something drastic happens, Sussex should salvage another win in their third match to make it three in three. Surrey, on the other hand, played extremely well against Essex to bounce back into the contention after back to back losses in their first couple of games. Both the teams have some superb match-winning players who can single-handedly win them the match. However, the varieties and experience in the bowling lineup of the Sharks places them just ahead of Surrey in the upcoming match.
