Vitality T20 Blast is undoubtedly the most packed T20 tournament in the world with over a hundred matches scheduled to be played in one season. The 2021 season for the Blast will begin on 9th June with four matches to be played on the day. The second day will be even more packed with five other matches to be played.
The first of the second day's matches will be played between Glamorgan and Gloucestershire, the two sides that are both packed with some supremely talented cricketers. The match is to be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on 10th June 2021.
Glamorgan are coming off a relatively uninspiring last season and will want to deliver on all fronts in this one. They won four and lost five matches in 2020 and eventually finished fifth. Andrew Balbirinie was the pick of their batsmen last year, but for a team that had players like David Llyod, Chris Cooke, and Colin Ingram, Glamorgan disappointed their fans.
The Welsh side has plenty of experienced campaigners available at their disposal this year and that should certainly play to their advantage. Colin Ingram is as good as any and can tear apart any bowling attack on his day. Apart from him, Chris Cooke and David Llyod could really come in handy. The most notable change for this side would be the regular inclusion of Marnus Labuschagne, who scored a match-winning fifty in the last Championship match. He seems to be a lucrative option to bet on as the top scorer for Glamorgan in the upcoming match.
Even though the format is different, Glamorgan will be pumped by their fantastic win over Lancashire in the recently concluded Country Championship match. On paper, Glamorgan have a battery of experienced players who can all be match-winners on their day. Even the youngsters in Callum Taylor, Nick Selman, and Prem Sisodiya have ample experience up their sleeve. If they manage to perform to their on-paper potential, getting past them will be a colossal task for any side.

Gloucestershire were their group's best side last year and stormed to the semi-final before their campaign came to an end. They were left utterly disappointed as the semi-final was cut short due to rain, which arguably put Gloucestershire in a position of disadvantage. They would be hungry to continue from where they left off and it will be interesting to see if they can gather momentum right from the very beginning.
The main exponents for them last year were Chris Den and Ian Cockbain, who both consistently scored heaps of runs right through the competition. Gloucs have further buffed up their team with the inclusion of Glenn Phillips, who can destroy any bowling lineup in a matter of a few overs. Besides him, Daniel Worrall too can play a crucial role to take Gloucs forward this year. James Bracey, however, will not be available owing to national duty.
Gloucestershire are one of the most consistent teams in the Blast evident by the fact that they have made it to the quarter-final round four times in the last five editions. This is one punt you can safely take with this side yet again. With the likes of Ryan Higgins, Chris Dent, and Miles Hammond in addition to the players mentioned above, Gloucestershire have a terrific side. Having said that, they'll be wary of the fact that Glamorgan defeated them twice in two matches last year. If they can put that aside and put their best foot forward in this match, Gloucs should come out on top.
Chris Dent, Miles Hammond, GD Phillips, IA Cockbain, Benny Howell, Ryan Higgins, GLV Buuren, Jack Taylor, Tom Smith, David Payne, Josh Shaw.
Glamorgan certainly enter this match as underdogs, but with home advantage on their side, they should stand a decent chance. Besides, they have a team that is rich in experience and that can so often come in handy in the early part of the tournament. They registered a double over Gloucs last year and that should add to their confidence. Considering all those reasons and the odds on offer, betting on a Glamorgan win should be the way to go.
