Glamorgan will square up against Gloucestershire in a mid-table clash of the South group on June 7 (Tuesday). Gloucestershire’s last game was abandoned due to heavy rain without a ball being bowled. Glamorgan suffered a similar fate in the previous game, as their match was called off in the second innings due to rain after they had restricted Surrey to 160/9 in the first innings.
Both sides will look to clinch the vital two points on offer in the game as they have managed only two wins each in this year’s competition and have five points to their name. A win for either side will improve their prospects of breaking into the top four. Glamorgan will have their work cut out as their all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne has departed to join the Australian team ahead of the Sri Lanka tour.

The pitch at the Sophia Gardens is not a typically high-scoring surface going by the two matches that have been played here in this tournament. It has something to offer for the seam bowlers upfront as was seen in Glamorgan’s first home match of the season when pacers Michael Hogan and Michael Neser ran riot against Essex with three wickets apiece. The team winning the toss would like to bowl first on the surface which assists the fast bowlers.
Probable playing XI:
David Lloyd (c), Sam Northeast, Colin Ingram, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke (wk), Andrew Salter, Daniel Douthwaite, Michael Neser, James Weighell, Prem Sisodiya, Michael Hogan.
Glenn Phillips, James Bracey (wk), Paul van Meekeren, Tom Smith, Miles Hammond, George Scott, Jack Taylor(c), Ryan Higgins, Benny Howell, Naseem Shah, David Payne
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match
Glamorgan’s opener Sam Northeast has been amidst a purple patch as he has scored 196 runs in six outings, averaging 49. In the absence of now-departed Marnus Labuschagne, Northeast will have to bat more responsibly.
Probable best bowler of the match
Glamorgan’s veteran pacer Michael Hogan is the joint leading wicket-taker with 13 wickets to his name this season. The right-arm pacer will look to take full advantage of the conducive pitch conditions and provide early wickets for his side.
