Glamorgan will face Middlesex in the Vitality T20 Blast Southern Group clash in Cardiff on Friday.

The Chris Cooke-led unit are in a desperate state to turn their campaign around after managing to win just a single match in four outings.

However, this is their chance against a Middlesex side who are not out of the woods yet as they are placed on the bottom of the South Group with just two points.

In the previous five meetings between the teams in a T20 contest, Glamorgan have a clear edge where they managed to win on four occasions.

Glamorgan Preview

After suffering three consecutive defeats, Glamorgan will be eager to make changes in the starting XI.

The last defeat against Kent will be a hard pill to swallow for the management as well as the players where Glamorgan were bowled out for just 104 inside 18 overs while chasing a target of 145.

The form of former South Africa batsman Colin Ingram will be a major concern for the team management as he has only managed to score 33 runs in four innings at an average of 11 with the highest of just 17.

With the left-hander being completely out of sorts, the pressure will be once again on Marnus Labuschagne who has been in prolific form in the competition—not with just bat but also with the ball in hand.

The Australia international is the leading run-getter for Glamorgan in the competition with 248 runs in four innings at an outstanding average of 82.66 along with the strike-rate of 143.35, which included three half-centuries.

In the bowling department, the team will be depending on the likes of right-arm pacer Don Douthwaite, off-spinner Andrew Salter and Labuschagne to produce timely breakthroughs.

Glamorgan Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Cooke (c & wk), Nicholas Selman, Colin Ingram, Kiran Carlson, David Lloyd, Marnus Labuschagne, Daniel Douthwaite, James Weighell, Ruaidhri Smith, Andrew Salter, Prem Sisodiya

Middlesex Preview

After registering a remarkable victory against Hampshire where the side managed to chase down 217 with two balls to spare, Middlesex will not be eager to make too many changes in the starting XI.

In the batting department, the team will relying on the likes of Joe Cracknell—who was named player-of-the-match in the last game after scoring a brilliant 77 off just 43 balls—wicketkeeper-batsman John Simpson and captain Eoin Morgan to score bulk of the runs.

The batting form of Ireland all-rounder Paul Stirling and the team’s captain will be a cause of concern for the management going forward.

The right-hander has only managed to score 76 runs in three innings at an average of just 25.33 whereas Morgan has only managed to score 62 runs at an average of 20.66.

In the bowling department, the team will be relying on the likes of tall right-arm pacer Steven Finn, right-arm leggie Nathan Sowter and off-spinner Chris Green to produce timely breakthroughs.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

Eoin Morgan (c), John Simpson (wk), Luke Hollman, Stephen Eskinazi, Paul Stirling, Joe Cracknell, Chris Green, Nathan Sowter, Blake Cullen, Steven Finn, Ethan Bamber

Venue Details

Toss: To Bat

The side that wins the toss would be looking to bat first and put runs on the board on this pitch. Average first innings at the venue is around 140 to 150 runs.

Both teams are coming in this contest knowing that any result other than a win would not be good enough to stay in the race in securing a spot in the next round.

However, looking at the overall team’s composition, Middlesex seem to have a much better side, at least on the paper.

Therefore, the prediction is for Morgan-led unit to secure a win in the next match on Thursday.
