GLO vs ESS Dream11 Match Predictions

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.
