Vitality T20 Blast, 2018
Gloucestershire vs Worcestershire Rapids, 3rd Quarter-Final
The third Quarter-final of the 2018 Vitality Blast will see Worcestershire Rapids take on Gloucestershire in what is expected to be a riveting encounter on Saturday.
Venue:- New Road, Worcester
Match Timings:- Saturday, August 25, 2018, 07:30 PM IST
Worcestershire finished at the summit of the North Group points table with nine wins in fourteen games and will come into this all-important clash on the back of a 15-run win over Birmingham Beers in their last league-stage encounter. Skipper Moeen Ali scored a whirlwind 56-ball-115 to help his side post a mammoth 5-209 in 20 overs which was defended with aplomb thanks to Wayne Parnell (3-47) and Patrick Brown (2-23) as they restricted the Bears to 7-194; 15 runs adrift of the target.
They’ll face fourth-placed Gloucestershire, who are coming off a six-wicket defeat at the hands of Hampshire after a lacklustre batting performance saw them post a below par 8-144 in 20 overs. Micheal Klinger was the top-scorer for the side with a less-than-run-a-ball 43 (46). Chasing 145, David Payne (2-34) claimed Calvin Dickson (1) cheaply but the trio of Rossow (42), Northeast (37) and James Vince (48) batted with aplomb to take their side to a six-wicket win.
Heading into this all-important encounter, Gloucestershire will look to improve their batting if they are to pose any threat to a rampaging Worcestershire unit.
