THE LOWDOWN

Gloucestershire are coming off the back of a fantastic red ball season in 2019, securing promotion to Division One of the County Championship for the first time since 2004. Worcestershire’s season was far less successful as they could only manage a ninth-place finish in Division Two and will hope to put that right with a strong showing in the Bob Willis Trophy.

THE PREDICTION

Gloucestershire boast an exciting young red ball team full of talented players and led by captain Chris Dent, the South West based side will be quietly confident of finishing top of the Central Group. With home advantage against a Worcestershire side without the services of all-rounder Moeen Ali on England duty, Gloucestershire should come out on top here.
