Glamorgan and Essex are all slated to lock horns in the South Group Division fixture of the 2023 T20 Vitality Blast Season on June 9. The match will get underway at 11 PM IST.
Glamorgan are fourth in the points table and have secured four wins from six games. Their Net Run Rate (NRR) currently stands at -0.131. They would be a touch disappointed with their bowling effort against Surrey, where they conceded a colossal 236 runs and picked up only two wickets, which ultimately lead to their crushing defeat.
Essex are one spot behind Glamorgan in the points table with an NRR of -0.289. They would be entering the fixture with some confidence after their satisfying victory against Kent in their last fixture where an all-round performance with the bat and the ball go them comfortably steered them to a crucial win.
