Gloucestershire vs Middlesex Preview

  • The previous game between Gloucestershire and Hampshire ended in a loss.
  • In their previous game versus Somerset, Middlesex was defeated.
  • Benny Howell, Tom Taylor, and James Bracey all gave outstanding performances for Gloucestershire in the prior game.

 

Middlesex and Gloucestershire will square off in the 2022 Vitality Blast. On Sunday, July 3, the game will begin at 14:30 local time at the County Ground in Bristol.

Although Gloucestershire has been a highly good white-ball team for more than 20 years, they will not advance to the T20 Blast’s knockout rounds this year. Although they have been competitive in the South Group, they are four points behind the Hampshire Hawks, who defeated them on Friday night, going into this final game. Gloucestershire would have remained very competitive had they won in Southampton, but they struggled on a pitch conducive to bowling and was knocked for 125 in need of 141 to win. James Bracey, a keeper, maintained his recent excellent batting form with 38 runs off of 30 balls.

On Friday night, Middlesex lost against Somerset at Lord’s by a margin of two wickets, marking their ninth setback of the 2022 Vitality Blast. The fact that they only have one victory since May, against the bottom-of-the-table Kent Spitfires, is hard to comprehend, considering that they won their first three games of this season’s campaign in May. Luke Hollman (41) and Chris Green (44 not out), who helped Middlesex reach 160-6 on Friday, managed some lower-order hitting. With just two balls and two wickets left to play, Jason Beherendorff grabbed 3-30, but he could not stop Somerset from edging closer to victory.
