At almost the midway point of the T20 Blast teams are slowly but steadily getting towards the business end. With qualification to the knockout rounds on the line, teams will now look forward to piling up crucial wins and getting themselves as high as they can on the points table.
Glamorgan have made a good start to the new season so far. They were on a winning streak of 3 games before suffering a loss in the last game. But they will be keen on getting back to winning ways and starting their streak all over again.
Essex too have made a good start to the season. They are on a back of 2 back to back wins and have looked mighty impressive in their wins so far. They will too hope to extend this streak and solidify their place in the top half of the table.
Glamorgan have been extremely impressive in the 6 games that they have played so far. Winning 4 out of the 6 games they are well on course to make it to the knockout stages of the competition. However, their net run rate could throw some unwanted problems their way which they would want to rectify as soon as possible.
After losing the toss and being put into the field, they were completely blown away by the opposition. Conceding 236 runs whilst picking up only 2 wickets was extremely poor. They could not cope with the brilliant batting performance from the Surrey batsmen. Whilst all the bowlers went for plenty of runs, Jamie McIlroy picked up 1 wicket for 33 runs in his 4 overs.
With such a huge target to chase down, it was already going to be an uphill task for the Glamorgan Batsmen. With no other option but to go hard from ball 1, the target was too much. Sam Northeast tried his best but with no support he scored 76 off 54 balls. Losing the match by 65 runs really dented their NRR.
Key Players: Sam Northeast, Kiran Carlson, Prem Sisodiya, Jamie McIlroy

Essex too have made a brilliant start to the T20 Blast. Winning 4 games out of the 6 played has also put them in a really good position to make it to the knockout stages. They will want to better their net run rate as well, as it will be extremely crucial come the final stages of the competition.
After losing the toss and being put into the field, Essex displayed complete dominance with the ball. Restricting Kent to a mere 150 runs, picking up 8 wickets was a fantastic effort. Sam Cook was outstanding picking up 4 wickets for 18 runs and was key in restricting the opposition to a weak total.
With not a huge score to chase down, the Essex batting order made lite work of it. Chasing down the score in 18.2 overs was testament of how good of a run they are on. Matthew Critchley scored a brilliant 63 off 46 balls, anchoring the chase and taking them to victory after the poor start they had to the innings.
Key Players: Matthew Critchley, Daniel Lawrence, Daniel Sams, Sam Cook
Feroze Khushi, Daniel Lawrence, Michael-Kyle Pepper, Robin Das, Paul Walter, Matthew Critchley, Daniel Sams, William Buttleman(w), Simon Harmer(c), Shane Snater, Sam Cook

The weather will be perfect to play cricket. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 23°C - 14°C range, with just 5% chances of rain.
The Sophia Garden Stadium in Cardiff, England will be hosting this encounter. The capacity of the ground is 15,500.
This is not a high-scoring ground but gets better to bat on in the second innings. The teams here prefer to bowl first and chase down the total as the pitch gets better under lights.
The team that wins the toss would want to bowl first. With the pitch getting better to bat under lights, chasing down a target is much easier on this ground. In the last 10 matches played here, the team batting 2nd has won 7 games.
Both teams have had similar fates and are also tied on points. Both have been in really good form and will be a mouthwatering contest. Glamorgan really got their NRR dented with a loss in their last game and will look to better that. Essex on the other hand are on a 2 game winning streak and will look to continue that making it 3 out of 3 wins.
We predict that Essex will beat Glamorgan.
