T20 Vitality Blast, 2018
Gloucestershire vs Essex, South Group
As the caravan of the Vitality Blast rolls on Gloucestershire will take on Essex in what is expected to be a humdinger of an encounter on Friday.
Venue:- College Ground, Cheltenham
Match Timings:- Friday, July 20th, 2018, 10:00 PM IST
Gloucestershire is on a 3-match winning streak and will come into this game on the back of a 4-wicket win against Somerset last Friday. In a rain-curtailed encounter, Gloucestershire, thanks to AJ Tye’s 3-24 restricted Somerset to 8-114 in 11 overs. Chasing 115, GLO lost Hammond (4) and Klinger (8) cheaply before Cockbain (43) and Jack Taylor’s 7-ball-19 took them past the finishing line.
Their opponents in Essex would like to shrug off their abysmal run-of-form in the 2018 Vitality Blast, having lost 3 of their four fixtures thus far. They came up short by two runs in their last fixture against Glamorgan after having posted 167 in 20 overs. Despite Adam Zampa (3-17) and Neil Wagner (2-50), Glamorgan chased down the target thanks to Chris Cooke’s 29-ball-60.
