SUR vs GLO, 2nd Quarter-final, The Royal London One-Day Cup 2021
Date and Time: August 15, 2021, at 3:30 PM IST
Venue: Kia Oval, London
A competitive track beckons at the Kia Oval with help on offer for both the batsmen and bowlers. While the pacers should get some swing early on, the batsmen will look to make full use of the powerplay restrictions. The spinners will come into play in the middle overs, making for an even contest between the bat and ball. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with the pitch likely to get slower as the match progresses.
Today's SUR vs GLO Dream11 match top picks
Jamie Smith: Captain Jamie Smith has impressed in patches with his explosive batting ability in the middle order for Surrey. He will be keen to come good in this fixture as Surrey eye a big win against Gloucestershire.
Jack Taylor: Jack Taylor has been a mainstay in the Gloucs middle-order with handy contributions in the middle overs. Handy with the ball as well, Taylor should be a must-have in your SUR vs GLO Dream11 fantasy team.
