ESS vs GLA: Glamorgan and Essex were on the opposite ends of South Group table in Royal London One Day Cup last year. Essex were second with 5 wins in 8 matches, while Glamorgan were the worst team with just 1 win in their 8. The two teams will fight each other to kick-off their campaigns in 2019.
The last time these two teams met, Essex emerged as comprehensive winners by 9 wickets and a repeat could be on the cards. Essex will come into the game as favourites and Glamorgan will really need to dig deep to get anything out of the game.
