Two struggling teams in the Vitality T20 Blast 2021 season are going to be taking on each other in this match. Essex and Gloucestershire have won just one match each and have been on a losing streak in recent days.
Gloucestershire is going to play another match before this one starts and so things may change a bit.
This is a match that both teams will target as a potential win.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Essex vs Gloucestershire Vitality T20 Blast 2021. The match is going to be played at the County Ground, Chelmsford on the 18th of June 2021.
Jimmy Neesham played a blinder in the first match for Essex this season and helped them steal a win but since then they have been on a losing streak. The fact of the matter is that Essex’s batting is very weak. Tom Westley, Paul Walter, Ryan ten Doeschate, and Jimmy Neesham have not been able to score runs with any sort of consistency.
It will require something special from one of the batsmen to step up in this match.
The bowling has not fared much better either. Aron Nijjar, Simon Harmer, and James Porter have led the attack with support from the all-rounders. This combination has not really had too much impact on the opposition batsmen so far.

Gloucestershire’s batting is not very strong either and its leading batsmen have also struggled this season of the T20 Blast. Miles Hammond, Ian Cockbain, Glenn Phillips, and Chris Dent promise quite a lot on paper but have not delivered so far.
We do think that one of these batsmen should be able to come good against the weak Essex attack.
David Payne, Benny Howell, and Tom Smith lead the bowling attack for Gloucestershire. A decent attack but once again, nothing that is going to give any sleepless nights to the opposition.

Winning the toss and chasing has been the way to go for teams so far and that is what expect in this match as well.

The conditions could be a bit rough for cricket with rain being forecast for match day. If we do get some cricket, then the pitch should be pretty good for batting. There is some help for the spinners on the surface but the batsmen can still score freely after they get their eye in.
A score of around 170 seems to be par for the surface.
We are going to back Gloucestershire to win this match. Both teams are clearly flawed, however, we think Gloucestershire’s batting is just a tad bit better and its bowling is also better suited to T20 cricket.
Bet on Gloucestershire to win.
