Table-toppers go head-to-head
Both teams have qualified for the next stage but the positions are yet to be decided. Sussex will stay on top while Gloucestershire might finish on 2 or 3. A win tonight will make sure they finish second. By far SUS has been the best team in the Vitality Blast with the likes of overseas pros like David Wiese and Alex Carey. They are well supported by the local experience and talent of L Wright, C Jordan among others. They have all their bases covered. GLO has a top-heavy batting line-up and some T20 specialists in their bowling line-up.
Both teams should play the same team as their previous games.
The pitch has been a good wicket for batting. Seamers get some zip off the wicket but the ball comes on to the bat well too.
The 22-year-old batsman has been one of the main reasons behind Sussex’s success. His consistency at the top of the order has been amazing.
The 39-year-old from Australia has been in terrific form as an opener for GLO, scoring 308 runs including a 102* last night.
Another T20 specialist from Australia is GLO’s highest wicket-taker this season so far.
He has scored 176 runs in his last 4 innings and has been dismissed only twice. His terrific form and power-hitting make him an X factor.
