Vitality Blast 1st Semi-Final Squad Comparison

Derbyshire Falcons

It was a convincing win for Billy Godleman’s side against Gloucestershire in the fourth quarterfinal of the season. They bowled well to restrict the opponents to 135 runs and chased down the small total convincingly with a margin of 7 wickets. The skipper would be proud of the way his side has played in the last few weeks after having started on a poor note in the season. He would want his team to maintain the same momentum as they play the semi-final game against Essex Eagles where they would aim to reach the finals of the tournament for the very first time.

Batting line-up looks strong for the side with Luis Reece and skipper Godleman looking in good form. They would look to provide a good start to the side. The middle-order has in-form Wayne Madsen who will look to steer the innings in company of Leus du Plooy, Alex Hughes and Matthew Critchley. Fynn Hudson-Prentice and Daryn Smit will be expected to do the big-hitting towards the end of the innings. Ravi Rampaul is in great form with the ball and so is Hudson-Prentice. They will look for support from Hughes and Matthew Critchley to choke the flow of runs for their opponents.

Essex Eagles

It was a dream performance for Simon Harmer’s side in the first quarterfinals where they defeated pre-tournament favorites and table toppers of the North Group Lancashire Lighting by six wickets to stamp their authority. The side has peaked at the right time after having made a slow start to the tournament. Simon Harmer would be aware of the fact that his team has a chance of making it to the record books by earning their berth in the finals for the very first time in the history of the league. He would want his players to put up a professional performance as they go into this game.

In the batting department, Cameron Delport is in good form and his opening partner Tom Westley who missed out in the last game would look to make amends. Adam Wheater and Daniel Lawrence will look to convert their starts into big scores. In the finishers’ role Ryan ten Doeschate and Ravi Bopara look in great form going into this game. Overall they have a very strong batting unit which will make the side confident. James Porter, Adam Zampa and Ravi Bopara are in good form with the ball. Mohammad Amir’s return will strengthen the bowling for the side. Harmer is also bowling tight spells and they would be expected to see a good show from Aaron Beard with the new ball going into this game.

Our Prediction for Derbyshire Falcons vs Essex Eagles

Essex Eagles would win this game

Derbyshire Falcons and Essex Eagles both have made it to the semi-finals in contrast to what the betting sites in India had predicted ahead of their respective quarterfinal games. They have ousted two of the favorite teams from the tournament and are riding on good form at the moment. It has been a remarkable journey so far for both the sides as they hadn’t started the season convincingly. When they meet at Edgbaston, Birmingham for the first semi-final it is expected to be a tough battle that the crowds would love to see.

It is a close call between the two sides at the moment but Essex Eagles have a stronger batting line-up and this would make them favorites to win this game.
