Fantasy Tips of The Day

Tom Westley (251 runs at 50) and Jamie Porter (13 wickets) are the leading run-getter and wicket-taker respectively for Essex this season.

Meanwhile, Ollie Pope is the highest run-scorer (272 at 68) including two fifties for Surrey.

When these teams met in 2022, Daniel Worrall and Kemar Roach collectively bagged 17 wickets – of which nine were either LBW or bowled.

In the same match, Simon Harmer added 88 runs, took four wickets, and grabbed two catches.

Dominic Sibley has slammed only one fifty but has helped the fantasy players by grabbing the most catches (six) by a Surrey player. Given the seamer-friendly conditions, his slip-catching could gain more prominence.

Although Sir Alastair Cook averages only 33 in Chelmsford, his average against Surrey climbs up to 53.

Sean Abbott (102 runs, 19 wickets, and five catches) featured in the Best11 in five consecutive First-Class games.

After 11 games, Rory Burns averages only 17 versus Essex.

Shane Snater has managed only two wickets in this edition.
