Middlesex's recent win over Surrey have set up the tournament beautifully for them. They are currently at the top of the South Group table with two wins in two matches and an exceedingly good net run-rate. They've played both their games without too much gap between the two and have another one coming up, against Gloucestershire, which is to be played at College Ground, Cheltenham on Thursday, July 25th. Gloucestershire have played only one match in the tournament before, which was abandoned due to rain after they brought themselves into the pretty good position before the rain arrived. It is a pretty high-scoring venue, and with Middlesex and Gloucestershire strong in batting and bowling respectively, a nail-biting contest is on the cards.
Although the only points Gloucestershire have on the ladder are due to the abandoned fixture, they could consider themselves pretty unluckly, considering the position they were in before the weather gods opened the flood gates. They had Glamorgan, their arch-rivals, on the mat with Glamorgan's scoreline reading 96 for eight before the rain arrived.
Benny Howell was the pick of their bowlers as he picked up five crucial wickets at the expense of just 18 runs. Howell had done pretty well in the Bangladesh Premier League as well earlier this year and could be a key against this strong, if-form Panthers' batting lineup where the change of pace could prove to be vital.
Gloucestershire are a pretty good side on paper, and their bowling looked immaculate in their first match. Having said that, their batting is still untested in this season and will have a big role to play in negotiation the likes of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Roland Jones upfront. They'll also draw confidence from the last meeting between the two sides where they emerged victorious by a massive margin of 70 runs.

Middlesex have arguably been the team to beat in the South Group of the competition and have thwarted both their opponents in the two matches played. They are sitting pretty at the top on the back of some fine performances from their experienced players. In their first match, they defeated Essex Eagles where AB de Villiers looked at his vintage best and in the next match, against Surrey, Dawid Malan wreaked havoc on Surrey bowlers with a fantastic hundred.
With AB de Villiers and Dawid Malan both amongst the runs, it's not going to be easy to contain Middlesex regardless of the surface. Although AB de Villiers failed to repeat his heroic performance against Essex, he will be a key figure for the Panthers in the upcoming contest. Alongside him, David Malan, who is coming on the back of a massive hundred, will be someone who Gloucs will be looking to dislodge early.
On the bowling front as well, the Panthers have done reasonably well. The spin twin of Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Nathan Sowter have done incredibly well in tandem in both their matches, supporting their pace bowlers to perfection. With Finn, Helm and Roland Jones doing well as well, Middlesex Panthers have done little wrong in the tournament and are likely to go in with the same eleven. They won't be an easy outfit to defeat in the upcoming fixture.
Stephen Eskinazi, Dawid Malan, Dan Lincoln, Nick Gubbins, George Scott, John Simpson, Toby Roland-Jones, Thomas Helm, Nathan Sowter, ST Finn, Mujeeb Ur Rahman.

In the tournament gone so far, Middlesex have certainly been one of the most impressive sides. Considering the fact that Gloucestershire are playing at home and have an immaculate 13-1 record over Middlesex, they will not be short on self-confidence. Middlesex Panthers, on the other hand, appear to be a little too over-reliant on AB de Villiers and Dawid Malan which would be a top-most concern for them. With a solid record over Middlesex, a team that did pretty well in the last match, and the home advantage, Gloucestershire go in as favorites to win the upcoming fixture and break Middlesex's winning streak.
