Gloucestershire will be hosting a struggling Glamorgan team at Briston on Saturday, 18th June. Gloucestershire got better off Glamorgan in the reverse fixture earlier this month, courtesy of an all-around display by Glenn Phillips. Jack Taylor’s side will play their second game in the space of just 24 hours, having faced Somerset on Friday.
They will look to consolidate their position in the top half of the South group, and they will be buoyed by the return of former Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir to the squad. Meanwhile, Glamorgan have struggled in this year’s T20 Blast as they have managed just three wins in eight appearances, an abysmal record that sees them placed at the second bottom position in the points table.

The County Ground at Briston was a batting paradise in the earlier stages of the tournament, but lately, the batters have struggled at the ground with the bowlers enjoying more joy on the pitch. The team winning the toss will look to bowl first and make use of the bowling conditions in the early part of the match.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match
Opener Sam Northeast has been one of the very few shining lights of Glamorgan’s torturous season. The 32-year-old has so far scored 256 runs for Glamorgan in eight matches at a healthy average of 42.66. The right-hand batter will like to continue his good form and score big against Gloucestershire.
Probable best bowler of the match
Gloucestershire’s David Payne has been tremendous for his side this term as he is the leading wicket-taker of this year’s tournament with 17 wickets to his name. His bowling figures of 4/15 are one of the best bowling performances of this season and will look to add more to his tally against Glamorgan.
