Match Preview: Gloucs v Steelbacks


The Steelbacks travel to Cheltenham today as they face Gloucestershire in another Friends Life t20 game. After the thrilling last ball victory over Glamorgan here at the County Ground on Sunday, victory over Gloucestershire will put the Steelbacks tied on points at the top of the group with Glamorgan.

The last time these two teams met here at the County Ground in the competition, rain meant that the game was shortened to 12 overs a side. A brilliant bowling performance by Graeme White in front of the Sky cameras led the Steelbacks to an excellent 41 run win.

Gloucestershire so far this season have been struggling in the competition, after making the quarter-finals last year. In their five games so far they have only recorded one win, which was against Warwickshire. In their last outing against the same opposition on Sunday, Gloucestershire struggled at Edgbaston as they lost six wickets.
