T20 Blast 2020: Middlesex vs Sussex – Fantasy Tips
Sussex currently sits in third place only because of the performances from Luke Wright and David Wiese. They both have been brilliant in this season while Ravi Bopara’s form is an area of concern. However, the addition of Phil Salt for this clash is an additional advantage. In bowling, Claydon needs to perform in absence of Mills and Jordan.
They had a disappointing tour so far. The likes of Max Holden and Eskinazi will enter the contest as hot favourites while Davies and Simpson will be the players to watch out in the middle-overs. They have fine bowling attack with Finn taking the charge alongside Tom Helm.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
