GLO vs SOM Dream11 Prediction
Gloucestershire would be looking to bounce back from the shocking loss to Glamorgan in their last game as they face Somerset in their final League game in the Vitality T20 Blast on Sunday. Gloucestershire are the only team in the Central Division to book their place in the quarterfinals. They have won 6 games and lost only 2 in the 9 games they have played this season. Somerset, on the other hand, have won 4 games and lost another 4 out of their 9 matches. This is a must-win game for them to qualify for the quarterfinals. A loss here would seriously dent their chances to qualify for the next round and they would have to hope for the results of the other fixtures to go their way. Let's take a look at the GLO vs SOM Dream 11 Prediction for this interesting encounter.
