About the Match

After a brief period of resurgence, Surrey's march was halted by Jamie Overton's express bowling. They are fifth in the points table and are desperately looking for a win so as to break into the top-four. They face Gloucestershire in their next encounter on 12th August, who are sitting comfortably in the second place. Another win for them could potentially ascertain their quarter-final spot and they'll strive hard to get it as soon as possible.

Match Preview

Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire's last match was abandoned due to relentless rain at Chelmsford for which they had to share points with Essex. Considering that they are well ahead in the points table, a game with no result shouldn't have worried them much. They were absolutely relentless in their match prior to that where they hammered Middlesex by a whopping margin of 70 runs.

Gloucestershire had a poor start as Miles Hammond was dismissed for 5 and team's total at 7. He was replaced by Ian Cockbain in the middle and it was all Cockbain show thereafter. Cockbain completed his maiden T20 century to take Gloucestershire to the highest total in this edition of T20 Blast and the best ever total at Bristol. Ian Cockbain faced 61 deliveries and smashed 123 runs. He was ably supported by Michael Klinger relatively sedate knock who scored 44.

Chasing 243 to win, Middlesex got off to a brisk start but lost key wickets of Paul Stirling, Dawid Malan, and Fuller for 61 at the end of the powerplay. Eskinazi and Eoin Morgan tried hard to keep the chase on track, but the scoreboard pressure got to them as they both perished in the 16th over. Gloucestershire's medium pace Noema Barnett picked three scalps for 18 runs in his four overs, which was the highlight of the day where plenty of runs were scored. Middlesex finished for 172 for 6, losing the match by 70 runs.

Going into the next game, Gloucestershire are uncertain of fielding Michael Klinger and Graeme van Buuren as the duo did not field due to the back spasm and injured hamstring respectively.

Gloucestershire Starting Lineup

MAH Hammond, M Klinger, IA Cockbain, KN Barnett, JW Taylor, GH Roderick, Ryan Higgins, Benny Howell, Tom Smith, DA Payne, AJ Tye.

Surrey

Aaron Finch's absence has already started to haunt Surrey as they lost their last game to Somerset largely due to ordinary batting performance. Batting first on an excellent batting surface, Surrey had a poor start losing both their openers for just 20 runs on the board. Rory Burns was unlucky to be dismissed without facing a ball off the first ball of the innings. Nic Maddinson and Jason Roy followed him back in the hut in the space of just 20 runs as Surrey lost their three prime batsmen in three overs.

Ben Foakes and Will Jacks joined together to reconstruct the innings and while they were going good, Roelof van der Merwe dismissed Foakes against the run of play. With a couple of cameos from the lower middle-order and Will Jacks' enterprising fifty, Surrey managed to get to a respectable total of 176.

Somerset's start wasn't a lot different to that of Surrey as both their openers were taken care of by Morne Morkel. Tom Curran and Morne Morkel bowled well to pick five wickets between them, but lack of support from other bowlers allowed Somerset to reconstruct and get back into the game. Gareth Batty was the only other wicket-taker for them; he returned with the figures of 2-0-21-1 as Somerset got to the target with five balls and four wickets to spare.

Surrey Starting Lineup

JJ Roy, Rory Burns, Nic Maddinson, Will Jacks, Ben Foakes, Rikki Clarke, Freddie van den Bergh, MW Pillans, Morne Morkel, Gareth Batty, Jade Dernbach.

Our Prediction

Gloucestershire have been brilliant so far in the tournament with their captain Michael Klinger contributing with heaps of runs. However, he might well be rested in the next game owing to back spasm and the knock-outs around the corner. Surrey, despite the absence of Aaron Finch, are a formidable lineup with Roy and Burns at the top and Morkel and Curran in the bowling department. With a good motivating factor to get to the top-four Surrey are better-placed to emerge victorious in the upcoming encounter.
