GLA vs GLO Dream11 Match Prediction Glamorgan Vs Gloucestershire, English T20 Blast, 18 September

GLA Vs GLO

GLA Vs GLO Dream11 Team: Gloucestershire was beaten by Glamorgan in their second game of the tournament itself, but since that defeat, they have secured 6 wins in a row.

Glamorgan, on the other hand, went downhill after beating Gloucestershire as they lost 5 out of their next 6 games.  As these two teams face each other in the return fixture again, Glamorgan is severely under pressure.

Match Info

This is a Central Group match and will get underway at 11:00 PM IST. It will be a cloudy day, but thankfully no rain has been forecast for the night and it is likely to be a full 20-over game.

Team Form

Gloucestershire is currently on a winning streak of 6 games and is at the top of the table unsurprisingly. Since they had one of their games abandoned as well, they have a total of 13 points in the bag.

Glamorgan, with just 5 points out of 8 games, is at the second last position in the Central Group points table.

Venue Stats

The match will be played at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff. This is one of the grounds in UK where chasing might be a good option because the surface doesn’t quite deteriorate in the second innings.

GLA Vs GLO Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction

On the basis of current form, it’s a no-brainer that you would want to back Gloucestershire, but since Glamorgan has their backs against the wall at the moment, they might come up with a spirited performance.

Glamorgan would also have fond memories of playing against Gloucestershire as they are the only team in the tournament which has beaten Gloucestershire so far.

GLA playing 11 (expected): Nicholas Selman, David Lloyd, Andrew Balbirnie, Chris Cooke (C & WK), Owen Morgan, Callum Taylor, Andrew Salter, Marchant De Lange, Ruaidhri Smith, Timm van der Gugten, Prem Sisodiya

GLO playing 11 (expected): Miles Hammond, Chris Dent, Ian Cockbain, Ryan Higgins, James Bracey (WK), Jack Taylor (C), George Scott, Graeme van Buuren, Tom Smith, David Payne, Matt Taylor

Captain choices

Ian Cockbain: Out of all the players who have scored more than 200 runs in Vitality Blast 2020, nobody has a strike rate higher than Ian Cockbain. The right-handed top order batsman of Gloucestershire has scored at such a brisk rate that he has often managed to push the opposition bowling attack completely on the back-foot. Cockbain has scored 265 runs in 7 games at a strike rate of 189.28.

Chris Cooke: Although Glamorgan has largely failed as a batting unit in the Vitality Blast 2020, Chris Cooke is the only Glamorgan player who has been able to dominate with the bat at certain stages of the tournament. Cooke has scored 186 runs in 7 games with 2 half-centuries.

Vice-captain choices

Graeme van Buuren: Graeme van Buuren got a three-wicket haul in his last outing against Warwickshire, but he is someone who can be really useful with the bat as well in the middle order for Gloucestershire. The 30-year old all-rounder has the ability to play the big shots against the spinners.

Marchant de Lange: Marchant de Lange didn’t have a great day against Somerset in the previous game, but he is a real impact player with the ball because of his pace. He can come up with a match winning spell out of the blue. Apart from his game-changing ability with the ball, De Lange is decent with the bat as well, down the order for Worcestershire.
