Gloucestershire welcome Somerset to the Bristol County Ground on Sunday for a massive Vitality Blast fixture. Somerset have to win if they are to claim a spot in the quarter-finals.

Gloucestershire Form


Gloucestershire have already qualified for the quarter-finals of the Vitality Blast with six wins from their nine matches to date.

Gloucestershire appeared to take their foot off the gas a bit in their last match on Friday, losing by 17 runs to Glamorgan at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Glamorgan posted 188/4, but in response Gloucestershire stumbled to 171/6.

Ian Cockbain has been a constant source of runs for Gloucestershire this campaign, averaging 40 with the bat.

With the quarter-finals around the corner, Gloucestershire won't want to let a poor run of form derail their impressive campaign to date.

Gloucestershire News


Gloucestershire are likely to rotate their side for this encounter in order to get players some time on the field before the play-off matches start.

Somerset Form


Somerset have hit form at the right time as they push for a place in the Vitality Blast quarter-finals.

Somerset have won their last two matches, with their last fixture seeing them beat the Northamptonshire Steelbacks by seven wickets. The Steelbacks posted 140/9 and Somerset made relative light work by reaching the total with two overs to spare at the County Ground in Taunton.

Babar Azam's inconsistent form in the competition continued against the Steelbacks. He followed up his magnificent 114 not out against Glamorgan with just 4 runs against the Steelbacks.

Nothing less than a win will be good enough for Somerset against Gloucestershire if they are to reach the knockout round of the Vitality Blast.

Somerset News


With this match having such a big reward attached to it, Somerset will ensure they have their best side ready to go on Sunday.
