Gloucestershire v Northamptonshire Steelbacks – Match Preview

Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire have beaten each other twice in their last four meetings. The scales are even – and ready to be tipped.

Their last clash was in mid-September 2020. Gloucestershire won on the back of star performances from Chris Dent and Graeme van Buuren with bat and ball, respectively. Both could be key again.

Where: County Ground, Bristol

When: Thursday, 1 October 2020

Start time: 18:30 IST (13:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Three of the four completed T20 Blast matches in Bristol this season were won by the team that batted first. Significant cloud cover, though, could prompt the captain who wins the toss to bowl first.

Weather conditions: The forecast anticipates a high of 16 degrees celsius on a relatively chilly evening in Bristol. There is a 20% chance of rain. If the match is shortened, this could suit the team batting second.

Gloucestershire v Northamptonshire Steelbacks – Team News

Ian Cockbain and Chris Dent have served Gloucestershire well at the top of the order. Now is the time when their runs really matter, so they’ll need to make them count.

Bowling-wise, they can lean on Tom Smith and Ryan Higgins again. Smith took an impressive five-for against the Birmingham Bears earlier in the tournament.

Ireland’s Paul Stirling and South African Richard Levi are the ones to watch with the bat for Northants. They’re the side’s leading run-scorers in this year’s T20 Blast.

Ben Sanderson, Nathan Buck and Graeme White have been the Steelbacks’ best bowlers this T20 Blast campaign.

Gloucestershire v Northamptonshire Steelbacks – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are three more free cricket betting tips for today’s match in the T20 Blast.

These predictions are compiled by our experts and are based on the most generous cricket odds around.

Choose Cockbain to Be Gloucestershire’s Top Batsman

We’re not looking much further than Ian Cockbain to be the top batsman for Gloucestershire. He is priced at 3.75 by bet365 in this market.

The hard-hitting opener has been in great form and is a man for the big occasion. He could get solid support from Chris Dent again.

Select Sanderson to Be the Top Bowler For the Steelbacks

Ben Sanderson has taken at least one wicket in his last three T20 Blast matches. Earlier in the tournament, he managed seven in his first three matches.

He will need to bowl well to successfully combat Cockbain and company, but could offer good value for 22Bet’s price of 3.74 to be the top bowler for Northamptonshire.

Go the Other Way on a 50 Not to Be Scored

Quarter finals of major T20 tournaments can sometimes fall flat. The occasion can get to the batsmen and the conditions can be more conducive to the bowlers.

We saw it happen in the round-robin stage of the recent Caribbean Premier League and it might just happen here again. Funbet have priced a 50 not to be scored at 4.7.
