Bristol, August 09 at 11:00 PM IST
In-form Gloucestershire are up against struggling Middlesex in a Vitality Blast clash at the County Ground on Thursday.
Sitting fourth on the points table, Gloucestershire would want to grab the opportunity to climb up the ladder with both hands, against a side that has lost four games on the bounce. As far as the form is concerned, Gloucestershire have lost only once in their previous five Blast games.
On the other hand, Middlesex have managed to win only two games so far in the competition. Even if they manage to win the remained of their matches, they do not have any hope still. In their last two fixtures, against Surrey and Glamorgan, Middlesex have suffered big hammerings.
Pitch conditions: The County Ground in Bristol does not give much purchase to the bowlers. This could well be a bat-dominated fixture.
Last T20 result at the venue: Somerset 114/8 (11 overs) lost to Gloucestershire 116/6 – July 13, Vitality Blast 2018
