Essex will take on Sussex in the 31st match of the T20 Blast on Tuesday.
Essex are currently fifth in the South Group points table, winning one and losing two of their three T20 Blast fixtures. They began their campaign by beating Somerset before suffering back-to-back losses against Hampshire and Glamorgan. Essex will be keen to return to winning ways at the earliest.

They beat Gloucestershire by five wickets in their season opener and followed it up with a win over Hampshire. Sussex will want to extend their winning streak when they take on Essex.
