THE PREDICTION

Two Central Group sides collide in this Vitality Blast quarter-final as Gloucestershire host the Northamptonshire Steelbacks. Four points separated the two teams in the Central Group, with Gloucestershire topping the table having not lost to the Steelbacks in their two group matches, winning one, whilst the other was washed out. However, Northants were showing signs of the form that saw them set the pace early on in the tournament towards the end of the group stages and will travel to Bristol full of confidence. With the big hitting Richard Levi and Irish international Paul Stirling at the top of the order, the visitors have the batting power to put Gloucestershire to the sword and with the hosts having less than fond memories of previous quarter finals having been beaten by Derbyshire at the same stage last season, the Steelbacks have a strong chance of pulling off victory away from home and booking their place at Edgbaston.
