Gloucestershire from the South Group will square off against Surrey in the forthcoming match of the 2021 edition of the English T20 blast.
Gloucestershire has had a satisfactory performance in the tournament as yet. Currently occupying the 3rd spot in the standings with 14 points, they have won 6 matches and lost 4 matches. They achieved victory against Middlesex by 10 runs in the match that was held last week with commendable all-around performances.
On the other hand, Surrey’s key players Kyle Jamieson and Ollie Pope are injured. In the context of the evenly poised South Group standings, it will be a critical game for Surrey as they lost 2 consecutive matches against Kent by 9 wickets and 11 runs respectively.

The College Ground, Cheltenham has hosted only one game as yet in this tournament, wherein there was an equal battle between the bat and ball. It will be pretty robust for the batters to get going in the first 3 overs, but eventually, they will be able to score runs easily.

Benny Howell has picked up the most wickets for Gloucestershire, with 13 scalps in 10 matches, making him a must-pick player for your fantasy teams. He has even scored more than 200 runs with the bat.
With rare failures in some of the matches, Glenn Phillips has had a remarkable tournament by far. He has picked up 2 wickets and smacked the most runs for Gloucestershire in this tournament, with 423 runs in 10 matches at an average of 60.42.
Laurie Evans has smashed 240 runs in 11 matches at an average of 21.81, with the highest score of 65.
In 11 innings, Jamie Smith has scored 237 runs at an average of 29.62, with the highest score of 59, and this is a good buy for your fantasy teams.

Scoring 33 runs in 22 balls, James Bracey played well in the last game against Middlesex. You can take a risk and choose him as your fantasy team skipper.
Playing his 1st match in the T20 blast, Tim David decently kickstarted his tournament campaign by scoring run-a-ball 20 runs. You can take a risk and make him your fantasy team skipper.
Ben Geddes has scored mere 44 runs in 6 matches at an average of 7.33. Therefore, it is better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
Team Gloucestershire seems to have a better batting lineup with Glenn Phillips scoring a whooping 94 not out in the last game itself. Hence, Gloucestershire seems to have a slight edge. However, we can expect a high scoring thriller to be held on the upcoming weekend.
