The weather forecast seems to be quite overcast with a high possibility of rain. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 25°C - 12°C range.
Headingly located in Leeds, England will be hosting this encounter and has a capacity of 17000.
The pitch is a bowler-friendly wicket and has a history of deteriorating over the course of the 4 innings. Batting in the 4th innings is quite a task, so teams will look to bat first and take advantage of the fresh wicket, and pile on the runs.
Given the nature of the ground and the pitch, the team who wins the toss will look to win the toss and bat first. With the weather conditions suggesting rain, bowling first and using the overcast conditions which will help the bowlers will be the wise thing to do after winning the toss. But the general consensus with the toss will be to win the toss and bat first.
Both teams are stuck together at the bottom of the points table and will look to move upwards as soon as possible. They have both had sparks of brilliance, but have not been able to translate that into results. Yorkshire is fresh off a win from the last game and will look forward to continuing that winning streak. Gloucestershire on the other hand, have not gotten off the mark in terms of wins and will look to change that in this game.
We predict that Yorkshire will beat Gloucestershire.
