Gloucs v Glam - T20 at Bristol: Head-to-Head

22 Jun 2021 | Cricket

After successive washouts against Somerset at Taunton and the Sussex Sharks at Hove, Glamorgan travel to Bristol for their next match in the Vitality Blast with their T20 contest against Gloucestershire scheduled to get underway at 1830 on Thursday, 24 June (writes Andrew Hignell)

As the list below shows, Gloucestershire were the victors when the two teams met a fortnight ago at Cardiff:

3 August 2018 at Sophia Gardens - Glamorgan won by 2 runs
19 July 2019 at Cheltenham College - No Result
1 August 2019 at Sophia Gardens - Match Tied
29 August 2020 at Bristol - Glamorgan won by 15 runs
18 September 2020 at Sophia Gardens - Glamorgan won by 17 runs
10 June 2021 at Sophia Gardens – Gloucestershire won by 4 runs

However, Bristol has been a happy hunting ground for Glamorgan in T20 cricket as they have won the last six matches between the two teams at the Nevil Road ground, with Gloucestershire’s most recent victory over the Welsh county in the short format at their own headquarters coming on 2 July 2010 when they were victorious by eight wickets

Glamorgan’s 15-run victory last summer at Bristol was set-up by some frugal spin bowling by Prem Sisodiya and Andrew Salter, with the latter taking 4/20 after Chris Cooke had posted an unbeaten 51. The victory by 25 runs at Bristol in 2017 followed a pair of assertive fifties by Jacques Rudolph and David Miller, with the pair of South Africans unleashing some muscular blows before the Welsh county’s attack restricted the home batsmen.

The six-victory win at Bristol in 2016 was also underpinned by a fine bowling performance which had restricted Gloucestershire to 168/6, before Colin Ingram posted a quickfire fifty to guide Glamorgan to victory. The game at Bristol in 2015 was a high-scoring affair with each captain, Jacques Rudolph and Michael Klinger, posting an unbeaten hundred. But it was the efforts of the Glamorgan leader, and his maiden T20 century, who held sway as the Welsh county won by 19 runs
