SUS vs SUR Dream11 Prediction: Sussex Sharks vs Surrey – 28 August 2020. Sussex Sharks will take on Surrey in the League Match of Vitality Blast T20 which will be played at the County Oval in Hove. The T20 cricket is finally back in England and nothing better than some T20 Blast cricket.
Surrey used to be a force to deal with in the 2019 season with some star players in their ranks but this time they are looking really weak on paper whereas Sussex Sharks are looking really strong on paper with the likes of Phil Salt, Luke Right, and even the inclusion of the new signing Ravi Bopara will make them much more stronger.
This should be a really good game as some International players are in the featuring.
Pitch Report – The average 1st innings T20 score at this stadium is 168 runs which suggests that this is going to be a really good batting wicket.
