Big win needed for Gloucestershire to get quarterfinal entry

  • Gloucestershire batsmen Ben Charlesworth and Jack Taylor come into this game with runs under their belt
  • Kent was bowled out for 105 runs in the last game, and this would hurt their confidence here

We are into the 69th game of the Royal London One-Day Cup, 2021 and hosts Kent would be up against Gloucestershire. Kent comes here after suffering a massive loss in their last game against Hampshire while Gloucestershire were unlucky to have seen their last game against Middlesex suspended due to Covid. 

Kent has looked completely out of form in the tournament, and they have managed just one win. The side is sitting at the bottom of the points table, and it would be interesting to see if they can end the season with a win. For Gloucestershire this is a must-win game, and they would need to put up their best show and win this one by a big margin.

Kent Preview

Jack Leaning would be extremely upset with the show his side has put up this season. They have managed only one win and come here with a 6-wicket loss against Hampshire. The side was bowled out for mere 105 runs in the last game. As they bow out of the tournament Leaning would want to see a much better effort from his players in this game. 

Oliver Robinson and Tawanda Muyeye got their starts in the last game, but the side would need them to put up a strong show. The middle order is struggling at the moment and here Leaning, Harry Finch and Darren Stevens will have to play well in the game. Contributions would also be needed from Joe Gordon and Grant Stewart down the order. 

The side would need early wickets in this game from Grant Stewert and Matthew Quinn as they are up against a very strong batting line-up. The likes of Nathan Gilchrist, Hamidullah Qadri and Harry Podmore will need to play their role well in this game for the side to register a win.

Kent Predicted Playing XI:

Jack Leaning (c), Oliver Robinson (wk), Tawanda Muyeye, Harry Finch, Grant Stewart, Darren Stevens, Harry Podmore, Hamidullah Qadri, Nathan Gilchrist, Joe Gordon, Matthew Quinn

Gloucestershire Preview

Chris Dent’s side would be upset at their last game against Middlesex having been suspended due to Covid. This has increased the problems for the side. They will have to win this game by a big margin to make it to the quarterfinals and hope the results of other games to work in their favor. Their opponents are struggling, and Dent would like to exploit this weakness. 

Chris Dent has been in poor form and the skipper would have to deliver in this game and put up a good opening wicket stand with Ben Charlesworth. In the middle order Jack Taylor is looking in good form and needs to score runs with Tom Lace and Graeme van Buuren. The side would also like to see runs down the order from George Scott and Tom Smith. 

Matt Taylor is looking good with the ball and shall look to grab early wickets in this game from Daniel Worrall. Jadred Warner and Tom Smith have been bowling tight spells and similar show would be needed from them. Graeme van Buuren and Shaw would have to bowl tighter lines in this game. 

Gloucestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Dent (c), Ben Charlesworth, Tom Lace (wk), Graeme van Buuren, Jack Taylor, George Scott, Tom Smith, Matt Taylor, Josh Shaw, Daniel Worrall, Jared Warner

Weather Conditions

Beckenham would see overcast skies with on August 12. The wicket here is flat and batsmen can easily score runs as we have seen in earlier games. There is little there in the surface for the bowlers. The side batting first in this game would need to put at least 320 runs on the board to feel comfortable.

Venue Details

It is a small park at Kent County Cricket Ground, Beckenham and batsmen have always enjoyed batting on this surface. The smaller boundary dimensions allow batsmen to play their strokes without any fear. Fast bowlers need to use their variations to do well here, and spinners have also found the conditions challenging.

Toss: To Bat

We have already seen big scores being put up on this surface with more than 700 runs scored in the first game of the season here. It is a flat track and there isn’t much in there for the bowlers. The side winning the toss should have no hesitation in batting first.  

Kent has won only one game this season and their batsmen have been in poor form. They have also bowled poorly and there haven’t been any positives for the side. They would have to come up with a brilliant show here to win it. Gloucestershire haven’t fared much better either, but they have a stronger batting line-up, and this would put them nose ahead in this game.
