Sussex Sharks would be looking to return to form as they take on the Gloucestershire in the next game of Vitality T20 Blast 2022 at home. The Sharks have been inconsistent and come here with a massive loss against Surrey. Gloucestershire threw away the game against Somerset with poor bowling and shall look to bounce back here.  

Gloucestershire has enjoyed a good record against the Sussex Sharks in the past and this would give them confidence in this game. Sussex Sharks hasn’t seen runs from its middle-order batsmen and this is a major concern for the team. With both sides coming here after losses we expect this to be a close contest.

Sussex Preview

Ravi Bopara’s side has struggled with consistency. The side comes into this game with two consecutive wins, and they must get their acts right to rise on the points table. They batted poorly in the last game against Surrey to go down by 7 wickets. Bopara would like his senior players to show the way in this game and make it to the Top 4 on the points table.  

Tim Seifert is the key batsman for the side, and he has to offer a solid start alongside Bopara in this game. The middle-order hasn’t contributed so far, and runs would be needed from the bats of Tom Alsop, Delray Rawlins, and Fynn Hudson-Prentice in this game. Harrison Ward, Obed McCoy, and Oliver Carter have to do well in this game as they will face a good bowling attack.  

Steven Finn bowled well in the last game and the side would like to see him strike early sharing the new ball with Rawlins. Tymal Mills’ form has become a major concern for the side, and he must bowl to his strengths in this game. McCoy, Bopara, and Archie Lenham haven’t been consistent, and this has increased pressure on the team. Their performance would be crucial for the side’s fortunes.

Sussex Predicted Playing XI:

Ravi Bopara (c), Tim Seifert (wk), Tom Alsop, Delray Rawlins, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Oliver Carter, Harrison Ward, Obed McCoy, Tymal Mills, Archie Lenham, Steven Finn

Gloucestershire Preview

Jack Taylor went down against Somerset by 3 wickets under the DLS method in the last game. Taylor would be upset as his side failed to capitalize on the opportunities. They had Somerset struggling during the chase but bowled poorly towards the end to suffer the loss. Taylor would expect to see a better show from his bowlers in this game and exploit the weaknesses that Sussex Sharks have with the bat.  

Miles Hammond and James Bracey have scored runs and the side would like to see them offer a good start. In the middle order, they have good hitters of the ball in Glenn Phillips, Ian Cockbain, and Taylor and these players shall look to score quick runs. Benny Howell can score at a good rate, and he will have to do this alongside Ryan Higgins in this game.  

They would like to put behind the poor show with the ball against Somerset. David Payne and Josh Shaw will have to offer a good start with the new ball and exploit the Sharks’ batting problems. Howell and Higgins have done well with the ball in the past few games and the same would be needed from them here. Zak Chappell and Tom Smith will look to do well in the supporting role.

Gloucestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Jack Taylor (c), Miles Hammond, James Bracey (wk), Ian Cockbain, Glenn Phillips, Ryan Higgins, Benny Howell, Tom Smith, David Payne, Zak Chappell, Josh Shaw

Weather Conditions

There are predictions for rains at Hove on June 10 and we might see a rain-curtailed game. The wicket has been challenging at the start with the ball moving around. Batsmen need to get their eyes in before they start playing shorts. The side batting first would be happy to have 160 runs on the board.

Venue Details

County Ground, Hove has large boundary dimensions and hence batsmen must depend on twos and threes to score runs here. The pace and bounce on the surface make it a good hunting ground for the fast bowlers. Spinners don’t get much out of the surface but the large dimensions act as a cushion for them.

Toss: To Bowl

Two of the three games played here have been won by sides chasing the score. Under overcast weather conditions, the side chasing the score always has an advantage. The two captains would have the weather forecast in their minds and the side winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling first.

Sussex Sharks have been inconsistent. The middle-order has looked in poor form and this has been one of the major concerns for the side this season. The side would need to see a good show from its batsmen to win this game. Gloucestershire has a strong batting line-up with big hitters of the ball in the side and this would put them slightly ahead of Sussex Sharks in this game.
