Glamorgan will take on Sussex in a South Group T20 Blast fixture at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Friday.
Glamorgan will be extremely disappointed with their performances in the T20 Blast so far this season. They have won just three out of their 11 matches and are currently placed in seventh spot in the South Group points table. While they have lost six times, two of their games were abandoned due to rain. Glamorgan will head into tonight's fixture on the back of an eight-wicket loss to Essex Eagles.
With three wins, two losses and five washouts, Sussex currently find themselves in fifth spot in the South Group points table. They have 11 points in their kitty and trail table-toppers Surrey by just two points. Sussex, who have a game in hand over Surrey, fell short of 63 runs in their last T20 Blast match against Middlesex CCC.
With both sides looking forward to learning from their mistakes and returning to winning ways, a thrilling T20 Blast contest beckons at the Sophia Gardens tonight.

Match: Glamorgan vs Sussex, T20 Blast
Date & Time: 2nd July 2021, 11:00 PM IST
Venue: Sophia Gardens, Cardiff.
The pitch at the Sophia Gardens is a pretty balanced one which has something to offer to both the batsmen and bowlers. While the bowlers can restrict the flow of runs and pick up wickets if they maintain the right lines and lengths, the batters will need to spend some time in the middle before shifting gears. The wicket tends to slow down as the match progresses and it becomes difficult to bat on in the second innings. Batting first upon winning the toss should be the preferred option at the venue.
