Ben Charlesworth has looked like the most reliable player in this Gloucestershire team so far.
In the next set of matches in the English One-Day Cup 2021, fans will witness a clash between Gloucestershire and Essex. The two teams have lost some key players to The Hundred, but would be looking to still put up a great contest in this tournament.
Essex have played some good cricket so far in this competition, winning three out of the four matches. They are coming into this game on the back of a win against Kent. On the other hand, Gloucestershire have played four matches, winning two and losing as many. They defeated Sussex in a close affair in their last contest.
Gloucestershire vs Essex, Group A
Venue: County Ground, Bristol
Date & Time: August 3rd at 3:30 PM IST and 11:00 AM local time
Live Streaming: Youtube/Team website
The County Ground in Bristol has over the years produced high-scoring matches. One of the main reasons for this is the short boundaries on some parts of the ground. Plus, there is an extremely flat wicket playing a role in high-scoring matches. The same could be the order of the day for this contest.

Top Picks – Gloucestershire
James Bracey has been batting quite well in this tournament so far and has managed to help his team’s batting, which hasn’t been up to the mark. He has scored 117 runs in two matches so far.

GLO vs ESS Risky Captaincy Choices:
Shane Snater is a good bowler and has picked up crucial wickets in this tournament. Picking him as a captain in this team can be a bit risky.
George Scott has made some runs with the bat, but is yet to play a big knock. He will be another risky captaincy pick.
Player you should avoid:
Jared Warner is a relatively inexperienced player and has played only 3 List A matches. In those three games, he has been wicketless in two. It is better to avoid him for now.
