THE STATISTICS

HEAD-TO-HEAD
Last meeting: Middlesex beat Glamorgan by 2 runs

THE TEAM NEWS

MIDDLESEX

Coach: Stuart Law

Captain: Stephen Eskinazi

  • Middlesex sit just outside the play-offs places due to their net run rate but with the top half of the South Group so tight, they will know a win here will put them in a great position to grab a top three spot in these final rounds.

  • Dawid Malan has been released from the England squad due to injury and he now will face a spell on the sidelines so Stephen Eskinazi will continue to lead the team in his absence and they will need the likes of Gubbins, Holden and Robson to step up in the absence of their international players.

  • Despite missing Malan, Morgan and Stirling, Middlesex smashed 364/6 against Somerset last time out with Sam Robson hitting a maiden white-ball century and their youngsters are taking advantage of their opportunities in what will surely be an unchanged team here.

GLAMORGAN

Coach: Matthew Maynard

Captain: Chris Cooke

  • After losing their opening three matches of the Royal London One-Day Cup this season, Glamorgan have bounced back by winning two and picking up a point in an abandoned game so they have form even if their hopes of a top three place are slim.

  • The main improvement in their game in the last couple of matches has been their batting with Billy Root and Chris Cooke in particular hitting some excellent form and at least one of their batsmen scoring big which has provided the foundations for their victories.

  • The form of overseas star Marnus Labuschagne continues to be an issue as his 53 runs from six innings has been nowhere near enough at the top of the order but they will keep the faith with him and the team that played so well to beat Gloucestershire last time out.

THE PREDICTION

Middlesex have done incredibly well to be within touching distance of the top three places despite being one of the teams most affected by international call-ups, and they will look to continue this fine form. They face a Glamorgan team who have reasonable form themselves, but they ultimately have little chance of the top three spots after losing their first three matches. The hosts will be without Malan, Morgan and Stirling, but their younger players are producing the goods and they can push on with another win here in what should be a close fought game.
