T20 Blast 2022: GLA vs GLO Match Prediction – Who will win the match between Glamorgan and Gloucestershire? Glamorgan will be without top-ranked Test batter Marnus Labuschagne, who has joined his national team in Sri Lanka.
On June 7, Glamorgan will face Gloucestershire in a South group mid-table clash (Tuesday). Gloucestershire’s previous match was called off due to heavy rain without a ball being bowled. Glamorgan had a similar fate in the previous game, as their match was called off in the second innings due to rain after restricting Surrey to 160/9 in the first.
Both teams will be looking to take advantage of the crucial two points on offer in the game, as they have only two wins and five points in this year’s competition. A win for either team increases their chances of breaking into the top four. Glamorgan will have their work cut out for them now that all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne has left to join the Australian team ahead of their tour of Sri Lanka.

According to the two matches played here in this tournament, the pitch at the Sophia Gardens is not a typical high-scoring surface. It has something to offer seam bowlers up front, as evidenced by pacers Michael Hogan and Michael Neser’s three-wicket haul against Essex in Glamorgan’s first home match of the season. The team that wins the toss prefers to bowl first on the surface, which aids fast bowlers.
Probable playing XI: GLA vs GLO
David Lloyd (c), Sam Northeast, Colin Ingram, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke (wk), Andrew Salter, Daniel Douthwaite, Michael Neser, James Weighell, Prem Sisodiya, Michael Hogan.
Glenn Phillips, James Bracey (wk), Paul van Meekeren, Tom Smith, Miles Hammond, George Scott, Jack Taylor(c), Ryan Higgins, Benny Howell, Naseem Shah, David Payne
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match:
Glamorgan’s opener, Sam Northeast, has been on a roll, scoring 196 runs in six games and averaging 49. Northeast will have to bat more responsibly without the now-departed Marnus Labuschagne.
Probable best bowler of the match
Michael Hogan of Glamorgan is the joint leading wicket-taker this season, with 13 wickets. The right-arm pacer will look to take advantage of the favorable pitch conditions and provide early wickets for his team.
