GLO vs SUS: The upcoming South Group T20 Blast 2021 match will take place at the County Ground in Bristol between Gloucestershire and Sussex on Friday.
Sussex will be playing their first game of this year’s competition. Sussex had a rather unfavourable season last year despite the likes of modern cricketing world giants and talented youngsters in their squad.
Gloucestershire on the other hand is walking into this with a win from their opening game of T20 Blast 2021. They’re continuing their exceptional form from last season where they finished as semi-finalists. Benny Howell starred with the ball for Gloucestershire bagging 3/39 which helped them clinch a win over Glamorgan.

GLO vs SUS Head-to-Head
In their previous matchups, Sussex has the lead with 10 wins while Gloucestershire has won 6 matches.
Powerplays will play a crucial role as both the team’s top-order batsmen would be looking to free their arms and accumulate as many runs as possible. The pitch is likely to slow down as the match progresses, with bowlers coming in and taking charge. The pitch will provide a lot of help to the bowlers in specific. Anything around 160-170 will be a competitive total to work with.
It is forecasted to be partly cloudy with extremely humid conditions as the game progresses.
