Glamorgan vs Essex Pitch Report

The pitch at Sophia Gardens is favorable for the fast bowlers who can get a lot of seam and swing movement early on to keep the batsman guessing. Run-scoring may become a bit of an ordeal but once they get their eye in, then it may look like a completely different game.

The average first innings score on this venue is 154 which serves as a clear indication that batters will have to watch out for the early demons and navigate through the middle overs to post a defendable total.
