Match Predictions and Team Previews
The two sides last met in a Vitality Blast game on 10 June 2021 in Cardiff. Batting first, Gloucestershire lost a couple of early wickets but recovered from a position of 34 for 2 in five overs to the relative comfort of 109 for 3 in the 14th over. But another minor stumble saw them reduced to 113 for 5 in the 15th. Thereafter, a useful 43-run stand for the 6th wicket between Benny Howell and Ryan Higgins and a cameo by Graeme van Buuren helped them reach 179 for 6 in their allotted overs. Glenn Phillips made a top score with 44 from 32 balls, while Jack Taylor (25), Ryan Higgins (22 not out), Benny Howell (30) and Van Buuren (15 not out from 5 Balls) also contributed. Dan Douthwaite (3/28) was Glamorgan’s best bowler on the night, while Andrew Salter, Ruaidri Smith and Marnus Labuschagne took a wicket each.
Glamorgan did not begin their chase well, losing 3 wickets for only 41 runs. But a 58-run stand for the 4th wicket between Labuschagne and Cooke saw them better-placed at 99 for 4 in the 13th over. After a lower-order collapse that had them lose 3 wickets in the space of 4 runs, the hosts were reduced to a seemingly hopeless situation at 144 for 9 in 18 overs. With only one wicket in hand and 36 runs needed from 12 balls, skipper Labuschagne made a valiant effort, but it was too little too late as Glamorgan finished at 175/9, tantalisingly short of the target. For Gloucestershire, Benny Howell took 3 for 39 to emerge the most impressive bowler, while Josh Shaw and Ryan Higgins took two wickets each and Tom Smith took one.
