Gloucestershire and Somerset are set to face each other in a South Group match of the T20 Blast 2023 on Friday, June 9. The County Ground in Bristol will host the contest.
Somerset, led by Lewis Gregory, are sitting on top of the table with 12 points and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of +1.831. Having won six out of seven matches, Somerset have been the standout team in their group thus far.
But they will go into their next game after losing to Hampshire by five runs. After being asked to chase down a challenging target of 179, Somerset got themselves up to 173 for six in their 20 overs.
Gloucestershire, led by Jack Taylor, on the other hand, have had their ups and downs. Having won three out of their six matches, they are placed sixth in the table with six points and a -0.387 NRR.
