gloucs vs ham Match Prediction & Analysis

Gloucestershire will face Hampshire in the South Group fixture of the Vitality T20 Blast in Bristol on Sunday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming in well-rested as their previous outing against Essex was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping to see fresh players showcasing their talent in the upcoming fixture.  Gloucestershire are currently placed on the fourth position of the league table with just five points after five matches played.

On the other hand, the visitors will also come well-rested as their previous outing against Surrey was also abandoned.

Looking at the points table, Hampshire cannot afford anything other than a win and therefore the management will be hoping to see players will live up to the occasion and produce a better display this time around.

However, in the last meeting between the teams in a 20-over contest, which was nearly two years ago, it was Gloucestershire who came out on top with a seven-wicket margin.

Teams Preview

Gloucestershire Preview

After registering an impressive victory in the last match against Middlesex, Gloucestershire’s team management are unlikely to make too many changes in the playing XI.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of last match’s hero Ian Cockbain, Chris Dent and wicketkeeper-batsman Glenn Phillips to score bulk of the runs in order to put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of right-arm pacer Josh Shaw and left-arm pacer David Payne to produce timely breakthroughs and dismantle the opposition’s batting unit.

Gloucestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Dent, Miles Hammond, Ian Cockbain, Glenn Phillips (wk), Jack Taylor (c), Ryan Higgins, Benny Howell, Tom Smith, Josh Shaw, David Payne, Daniel Worrall

Hampshire Preview

After suffering a defeat against Middlesex in their previous outing, Hampshire’s team management will be tilted towards making some changes in the playing XI.

The most concerning aspect for the coaching staff would be the performance of the bowling unit as the team failed to defend a mammoth total of 215 runs.

In the batting department, Hampshire will be depending on the likes of England’s opening batsman James Vince, Australia’s T20 specialist D'Arcy Short and wicketkeeper-batsman Lewis McManus to score bulk of the runs and give something for the bowlers to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of former South Africa pace Kyle Abbott, left-arm pacer Chris Wood, right-arm leggie Mason Crane and left-arm spinner Liam Dawson to produce timely breakthroughs.

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

James Vince (c), D Arcy Short, Tom Alsop, Joe Weatherley, Lewis McManus (wk), Liam Dawson, James Fuller, Ryan Stevenson, Kyle Abbott, Mason Crane, Bradley Wheal

Venue Details

Toss: To Bowl

The side that wins the toss, would be keen to bowl first and restrict the opposition to less than 180 runs. The previous game played at Bristol was won by side batting second.

GLOUCS vs HAM Winning Prediction

Both teams are coming in this match after having a lengthy rest and therefore, a feisty contest is expected.

Looking at the both teams combination on the paper, despite having an inferior position on the points table, Hampshire looks a far more settled team than their opponents on Sunday.

 

Therefore, the prediction is of James Vince’s-led unit to secure a win and boost their chances of cementing their place in the next round/
