About the Match

Both Middlesex and Glamorgan are coming into their upcoming match after having a nail-biting finish in their respective matches. While Glamorgan edged Gloucestershire in a high-voltage match, Middlesex were at the receiving end as Surrey chased down a mammoth total against them. The two teams face each other in a South group clash on August 4th, 2018 at Richmond. Both the teams are languishing in the bottom half of the table and a win here will be significant for both the sides, as far as qualification for the playoffs is concerned.

Match Preview

Middlesex

Middlesex could consider themselves a little unlucky considering the form and mood Aaron Finch and Jason Roy were hammered their bowlers to script a record-breaking win.

Batting first, Middlesex raced to an above par total of 221 riding on a spectacular ton by Paul Stirling. Stirling smashed 109 runs off just 58 deliveries. Stirling was dropped by Maddinson on the first ball of the match, but he soon got into the destructive mode he's known for. Nick Gubbins played a good second fiddle to Paul Stirling for a quickfire 20. Eoin Morgan was dismissed for zero without facing a ball as he was involved in an ugly mix-up with Paul Stirling. Runs, however, continued to flow despite his dismissal as Middlesex racked up a mammoth total.

There wasn't anything Middlesex's bowlers could do when Finch and Roy were tearing them apart. Their most economical bowler was Ashton Agar who gave away 43 runs in his four overs. No other bowled with an economy rate of less than 13.75 as Surrey raced to the target with four overs to spare. Fuller dismissed Jason Roy, but the carnage didn't stop as it was too little too late with Surrey only 28 runs away from the victory then.

Middlesex Starting Lineup

PR Stirling, Nick Gubbins, Stephen Eskinazi, Eoin Morgan, James Franklin, George Scott, Robbie White, James Fuller, ST Finn, Tom Barber, Ravi Patel.

Glamorgan

Glamorgan were once again a part of a pulsating finish, this time emerging as the better team as they edged past their rivals, Gloucestershire, by two runs. Glamorgan scored a total of 201 for the loss of six wickets with Craig Meschede top-scoring for them. He played his career-best knock of 77 runs of just 47 deliveries including four fours and five sixes.

It was a dramatic start with the ball for Glamorgan as Gloucestershire were awarded five extra runs as a fielder pretended to field the ball. However, it didn't have much of an impact as Miles Hammond, Michael Klinger, and Ian Cockbain were dismissed in quick succession. Needing 75 off the final five overs, Glamorgan were in a perfect position to drive the game, but some poor bowling coupled with fearless batting from Taylor allowed Gloucestershire to get back into the game. Tim van der Gugten held his nerve in the final over as he not only dismissed Jack Taylor but also defended the three runs required off the last delivery.

It was a collective effort from Glamorgan batsmen as they got past the psychological mark of 200. Usman Khawaja and Aneurin Donald batted well together for the opening wicket, putting 45 on the board before the former was dismissed. Craig Meschede joined Aneurin Donald and the duo added 37 runs for the second wicket. Carlson could not contribute anything substantial unlike the last game and he was dismissed in a quest to score quickly. Their stand-in skipper, Chris Cooke, played a beautiful little innings as he settled into an excellent partnership with Craig Meschede of 29-ball 50. Meschede provided the final flourish to the total as he hit Andrew Tye for 25 runs in the final over, which consequently proved to be a differentiating factor.

Glamorgan Starting Lineup

Colin Ingram, Aneurin Donald, Craig Meschede, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Graham Wagg, Nicholas Selman, Andrew Salter, Ruaidhri Smith, Timm van der Gugten, Michael Hogan.

Our Prediction

Both the teams are coming from high-scoring encounters and their batsmen will be in a great frame of mind. However, the bowlers from both the sides were at the receving end, though Glamorgan managed to survive a close scare. As far as the points table is concerned, Glamorgan are marginally ahead of Middlesex having won two more games than Middlesex. They have the momentum with a win in their last match and are better placed to edge past Middlesex in their upcoming fixture.
