The South Group match of the T20 Blast, 2020 will be played between Surrey and Essex at the Kennington Oval in London.
The match starts at 2:00 PM local time (6:30 PM IST) (1:00 PM UTC) and can be streamed live on FanCode.
Last year, Essex suffered two losses against Surrey. Thus, Surrey will look forward to improving their record against the defending champions in the upcoming T20 Blast game. Surrey and Essex faced washouts in their respective opening games. Both these teams have been highly competitive whenever they played each other. In the season before last year, Essex won three games in a row. With both these sides having done well in recent times, these should be a great cricket contest.
The temperature will be around 15 C and the skies are forecast to be cloudy.
The pitch seems to be a decent one to bat on. At the same time, there is some assistance on offer for the pacers.
