T20 Blast is entering the crucial phase with teams looking to get vital points ahead of the final phase of the league stages. Gloucestershire and Sussex are in the South Group and are placed in the bottom 3 positions. They are almost out of the knockouts contention with just mathematical chances available to qualify if multiple results go in their favor. Both teams will look to win this match and keep their statistical chances alive although not practical.
Gloucestershire chased a revised total of 85 runs in 8 overs in the rain hit contest. Ben Wells (43* runs) and Ben Charlsworth (29* runs) played crucial cameos to help their batting unit cross the line after the cheap dismissal of the openers in single digit scores. Their top order duo of Miles Hammond and Grant Roelofson are struggling now and will be eager from a big score.
Their bowlers restricted the opposition to 158/7 to win comfortably by 8 wickets (DLS method). Tom Smith picked up 3 wickets and gave runs at just 6.5 RPO. Their trio of David Payne (1/37), Gohar (1/18), and Gv Buuren (1/22) took a wicket each and controlled the run flow in the middle overs last game. They have good depth in bowling attack with Oliver Price and Tom Price in their playing XI.

Sussex`s top 3 of Harrison Ward (32 runs), Tom Clark (23 runs), and Oliver Carter (19 runs) gave good starts in the last game but failed to convert it into a big score and lost wicket regularly. Skipper Rvai Bopara played a fighting knock of 53 runs to lead them to a score of 168 runs in their 20 overs. George Garton and Micheal Burgess are too in good touch in the lower middle order.
Sussex bowlers failed to restrict the opposition as they gave 172/4 in 18.4 overs to lose the match. Aristides Karveles took 2 wickets but gave runs at 9+ RPO in the match. Ravi Bopara and Tymal Mills chipped in with a wicket each in the match.

The pitch is on the slower side slightly and bowlers have dominated the proceedings, but the pitch seems to ease out as the match progresses. We expect the scores to be in the range of 160-170 runs in this match too.
Bristol is one of the iconic venues in the English circuit and it is the home ground for the Gloucestershire team. They have mixed record in their matches played here this season and will be looking to continue the winning streak.
Chasing is the trend of the T20 matches and we expect the same to continue in this match as the pitch looks good for entire duration of the match. 5 out of 6 matches played here have been won by teams batting second in this season.
Both teams have been led by their middle order in the matches played so far but Sussex have a better firepower in batting unit with quality players in their ranks. Sussex bowlers have failed to restrict the opposition in the last game while Gloucestershire bowlers have advantage of playing in home conditions in this match. We expect Gloucestershire to win this match and continue their winning form with a victory in their home soil.
GLOUCESTERSHIRE will win the match
