mdx vs gloucs Match Prediction & Analysis

 

Middlesex and Gloucestershire come into this match occupying the bottom half of the points table with just a win. Gloucestershire lost both their matches after winning their opening match and will need to get their act right to arrest the slide. Middlesex on the other hand returned to winning ways after suffering two losses in the first two away matches. Their home game brought them luck as they chased down a big score in a tight finish. With rain threat looming and batting paradise we expect a cracking contest between two quality teams.

Teams Preview

Middlesex Preview

Middlesex put on a spirited batting performance to successfully chase down a massive total of 215 runs. Joe Cracknell (77 runs) and John Simpson (62 runs) made a 122-run partnership to lift their team from 30/3 to 152/4. Chris Green played a crucial knock of 26 runs to seal the game with the other lower order players chipping in with crucial runs.

Nathan Sowter and Blake Cullen bowled effectively and had combined bowling figures of 8-0-61-3 while all the other bowlers leaked runs at nearly 12 RPO. Steve Finn took 2 wickets while Chris Green took a wicket, but both could not contain the run flow.

Top players to bet on:

John Simpson: Simpson`s knock of 62 runs in 31 balls to set the tone of the chase and provided the impetus for his team`s batting. We expect him to continue his good show with the bat in this match too.

Chris Green: Green has been their impact player in last 2 matches with a five wicket haul in the last game and scored a match winning 26 runs off 13 balls in this game. He will be high on confidence after these performances.

Middlesex Predicted Playing XI:

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

Gloucestershire Preview

Gloucestershire looked good for the most part of the chase but failed to climb over the line failing to score 9 runs in the last over. Chris Dent (40 runs), Glenn Philips (38 runs), and Benny Howell (44 runs) lead the chase with valiant cameos in the match. They scored just 4 runs in last over and ended up losing the match by 5 runs.

David Payne was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets in his 4 overs. Josh Shaw and Gv Buuren chipped in with a wicket each. But the other bowlers failed to contribute effectively and gave 183 runs in the 20 overs. Their bowlers must perform well as unit to restrict the opposition effectively.

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Philips: Philips has scores of 44,42, & 38 in the three matches so far. He got starts but failed to make them count with a big score. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Josh Shaw: Josh Shaw has 6 wickets in 3 matches and leads the team`s wicket charts so far. Josh Shaw will look strangle the batsmen with his controlled bowling in this match too.

Gloucestershire Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Radlett weather does not look promising with dark clouds and thunderstorms predicted on the match day.  DLS equation might come into consideration in this match.

Venue Details

Radlett is a batting paradise where 430+ runs were scored. Bowlers need to utilize their variations and slower ones to great effect. We expect yet another run feast of 200+ runs in this game too.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as no target is safe at this venue. Middlesex chased 215 runs successfully in the last game played here.

MDX vs GLOUCS Winning Prediction

Middlesex will be high on confidence after their morale boosting win in the last game and they have home conditions to their advantage too. Gloucestershire are struggling for momentum with back-to-back losses but will hope get their act right in this match. Middlesex has a slight advantage in their team composition with better quality players in both batting and bowling departments. Rain might play a role in this match and might end up favouring a team based on DLS rules owing to over reduction.
