Gloucestershire Vs Derbyshire

Prediction : Gloucestershire to win

Gloucestershire had a terrible start to the tournament, but the fact that they managed to qualify for the playoffs speaks volumes about the kind of cricket they played towards the end of the group stage. They eventually finished at the second spot in the points table, thanks to a total of seven wins, one tie, and three washouts, amounting to a total of 18 points.

The most remarkable thing about their climb towards the end of the group stage is that six of their seven wins came in their last eight matches. They are coming into the upcoming fixture on the back of four superb wins and have momentum with them. They are coming off a big win over Sussex Sharks, the table toppers, in their last match, which would have instilled a lot of belief in them.

In the earlier part of the tournament, it was their bowling that was doing most of the work, albeit in vain. In the second half, however, their batting picked up pace as the likes of Matt Hammond, Michael Klinger, and Ian Cockbain contributed heavily to take them across into the top-four. They have arguably been one of the best team of the South Group in the second of the group stage, and beating them isnt going to be easy for any side, let alone Derbyshire Falcons, who will be under a lot of pressure.
