With half of the tournament already done and dusted in the Vitality T20 Blast, we are gradually moving towards the stage where each and every point will be of massive importance, more so for the teams in the middle of the table. Gloucestershire and Essex are stranded in the middle of the South Group table with both having three points each in five matches played. In a bid to get to the top-four, these two teams will take on each other in an important contest which is to be played at County Ground, Briston on Friday, 2nd August. The importance of this match can be evaluated by the fact that the winner of this game will move to a pretty decent position as far as qualification for the playoffs is concerned, while the team ending up as the second-best will have a tough time ahead.
Things have been pretty strange for Gloucestershire so far. They haven't lost even a single game in the tournament so far, but are still traveling in the same boat as Essex. They have won just one game in four matches and will be looking to convert their dominance into a couple of points in the upcoming fixture.
The rain has played a major part in Gloucestershire's campaign so far with two of their four matches being washed out due to rain. In one of the other two matches, they tied the game with Glamorgan in their last match, courtesy Andrew Tye's splendid innings towards the end.
Up until now, Gloucestershire have played some spectacular cricket, but some ill-luck has kept them devoid of a few important points. They have a reasonably good team on paper, and if they can hold on their nerve in crucial situations, it would be tough to stop them for the Eagles in the upcoming fixture.

Perceived to be one of the favorites to win the competition, Essex Eagles have failed to live up the expectation as they've won only one game from a total of five played. They had a poor start to the competition, losing to Middlesex in their opening game, but bounced back with a scintillating win over Surrey.
After their win over Surrey, however, they failed to keep any momentum going as they lost to Hampshire after their previous match was abandoned due to rain.
Batting first in their last match, they had a poor start to their innings, but Westley and Wheater got them ahead with a remarkable 2nd wicket partnership. The dismissal of Tom Westley triggered a collapse from which the Eagles struggled to recover throughout the match.
It was always going to be tough to defend the total of 133, and hence it proved. The addition of Mohammad Amir certainly made a difference to their bowling attack and returned with the figures of 16 for 1 in his three overs, but none of the other bowlers could neither keep the flow of runs in check nor could they pick up wickets which resulted in a landslide loss for them.

With only a few matches remaining per side, the importance of two points here can not be overstated. Both the sides are searching for a win, which will certainly improve their position at the ladder significantly. Comparing the two sides on paper, they both are almost evenly matched. However, Essex haven't bee able to replicate their on-paper strength on the ground which has certainly cost them. Gloucestershire, on the contrary, have punched above their weight, and with momentum in hand, they are better-placed to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
