Surrey and Essex will lock horns in the South Group of the T20 Blast on Monday (21 June). The match will take place at the Kennington Oval in London.
Surrey are yet to taste defeat in the tournament so far. They have recorded three excellent victories in five matches and have unfortunately had two games suspended due to heavy rainfall in London. With a better forecast on the cards, Surrey will be raring to go against Essex.
Essex themselves have experienced a poor start with four defeats and just one victory so far this season. They are reeling in eighth position in the Southern Group and need some inspirational performances to get back to winning ways.
Surrey look strong across all departments and will aim to extend their unbeaten run against Essex.

Surrey vs. Essex: Pitch report
Kennington Oval, London, is known for producing batting wickets. However, with heavy rain over the past three days, there will be a lot of moisture on the wicket. As a result, scoring runs will not be easy when the two teams take each other on.
The spinners played a starring role last time out in this ground and we expect it to remain that way this time around.
