Quarter-Final Confirmed! Birmingham Bears v Essex


After an enthralling conclusion to the Vitality Blast South Group, Essex have secured an away Quarter-Final against Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston on Thursday 06 July.

With all to play for heading into the final two matches of the group stage, Essex thrillingly defeated Surrey by three wickets at The Kia Oval to set up a Quarter-Final tie for the second time in two years.

The Eagles are accustomed to playing away Quarter-Finals, having faced Lancashire Lightning in Durham and Manchester respectively on each of the last two occasions they’ve made the knockout stages.

Next week’s match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, but we hope that you will be able to attend in person and support the Eagles as they push for a first outing at Finals Day since the victorious 2019 campaign. See below for information on how and when you can purchase tickets.

The Bears, who finished atop the North Group with 22 points, have met Essex twice before at this stage of the Vitality Blast, in both 2014 and 2015. The Eagles fell short on both occasions, and will therefore be out for revenge in the Second City on Thursday night.
