The form and the results suggest that it could be a memorable season for Gloucestershire. Earning the promotion back to Division-I remains the utmost priority for this historic County Cricket Club while remaining relevant in the Vitality T20 blast should be a realistic target as well.
However, the next game is a perfect test for Gloucestershire’s progress as they are set to welcome the in-form Middlesex for their 2nd game in the 2019 Vitality T20 blast.
Season so far:
Gloucestershire: Snatched the win from the jaws of defeat against Worcestershire in the Specsavers County Championship Division Two match at Cheltenham. The win kept Gloucestershire in the hunt for the promotion back to the top tier of English Cricket.
While their opening game in the T20 Blast was washed out against Glamorgan after just 15 overs in the match. Though, Gloucestershire must have left the ground sulking at the clouds as they reduced Glamorgan to 98-8 after 15 overs.
What do we think about their chances against Middlesex?
The transition from the longest form of the game to the shortest can be hard, and this game may have come too soon for the team’s liking. But the hosts may be just about alright and ready to embrace the opportunity after a terrific result in the last game.
