MID vs GLO Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Dream11 Team, Playing XI, Pitch Report And Weather Updates – Middlesex vs Gloucestershire, Vitality T20 Blast 2022
The T20 Blast has already started. Middlesex will take on Gloucestershire at the Radlett Cricket Club from 9 pm. The game will be played at the Radlett Cricket Club starting at 16:30 local time on Thursday May 26th. Both teams will be playing their first game of the season.
Middlesex’s last season started pretty badly. The Steven Finn led side lost their 6 games in the first seven games. Overall, they had a disappointing campaign in 2021 and picked up only four wins across their group league fixtures to finish above only Glamorgan. Middlesex will be hoping to continue their form in this year's County Championship. But the format is different and challenges will be more due to the unavailability of premier left arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi, who has returned to Pakistan to prepare for international commitments. Jason Behrendorff has signed alongside countryman Chris Green and Afghanistan’s Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Mujeeb Ur Rehman will be Middlesex’s lead spinner for this game.

Like Middlesex, Gloucestershire too missed out on qualifications for the quarter final stage by only one point last year and will be looking to make subtle improvements this time around.
Miles Hammond and Benny Howell are expected to open the innings for Gloucestershire. Howell was Gloucs' standout player last season with 246 runs by the bat and 15 wickets by the ball. Marcus Harris will be another overseas opening option added to the Gloucs roaster. Ian Cockbain will be taking the third spot in the batting lineup. Josh Shaw, David Payne and Naseem Shah will look after the fast bowling department. While
left-arm spinner Zafar Gohar can be seen in the playing eleven.
