Gloucestershire vs Sussex: June 11, Vitality Blast 2021 Prediction
In this article, we preview Gloucestershire vs Sussex, the Vitality Blast 2021 match to be played on 11 June 2021 at County Ground, Bristol.
Match Predictions and Team Previews
The last time Gloucestershire faced Sussex in the Vitality Blast was on 30 August 2019 in Hove. In that match, Sussex batted first. After losing a couple of early wickets that reduced them to 8 for 2, Sussex staged a smart recovery on the back of a 103-run stand for the 3rd wicket between Luke Wright and Delray Rawlins. But once Wright was out, with the score reading 111/3, a regular fall of wickets undid the good work. A lower-order collapse compounded the problem and Sussex ended up with a score of 163/8 in their allotted overs. Wright (41 off 32 balls) and Rawlins (69 off 41 balls) were the main scorers who received some assistance in the form of a cameo of 26 off 18 balls by David Wiese. For Gloucestershire, David Paine took 3/36, while Andrew Tye, Graeme van Buuren, Josh Shaw and Tom Smit took one wicket each.
In reply, Gloucestershire got off to a great start, scoring 59/1 within the powerplay overs. Thereafter, despite the fall of wickets very 3-4 overs, they maintained a high run rate so that when they were reduced to 115/5 in the 15th over, there was no cause for panic as the asking rate was doable. Still, the Gloucester innings ran into some rough weather when they got to 147 for 7 in 18 overs. With 21 runs required off 2 overs, it was left to Van Buuren to provide the fireworks. With an unbeaten 37 off 20 balls, including 3 fours and 2 sixes, he saw his team safely home, albeit off the last ball. Rawlins and Beer took 2 wickets each for Sussex, while Reese Topley and Chris Jordan took one each.
Sussex: Ali Orr, Tom Haines, Stiaan van Zyl, Aaron Thomason, Travis Head, Ben Brown, Danial Ibrahim, Jack Carson, Stuart Meaker, Henry Croccombe, Jamie Atkins.
Gloucester have won two and lost three of the last 5 games against Sussex. But importantly, they won the last time the teams met.
In our Gloucestershire vs Sussex match prediction, we believe that Gloucestershire will prevail in the match against Sussex to be played in Bristol on 10 June.
