This weekend: catch the T20 quarter-finals in BristolPosted on: 06 Sep 2019
Gloucestershire will take on Derbyshire this weekend in the quarter finals of the Vitality Blast T20 Cricket tournament. Let's hope that it's Glos going through instead of those chaps from up north!
See the match on tomorrow, Saturday 7 September at the Bristol County Ground. This could be third time lucky for Gloucestershire who reached the T20 quarter-finals stage in both 2016 and 2018 only to fall short versus Durham and Worcestershire respectively.
It's also Australian international Andrew Tye's last game for the club as he has commitments with Western Australia the following week.
365Bristol caught up with Tye during practice on Friday afternoon: he's certainly looking to leave his mark this season.
"It's great to be part of a team where we can rely on any of the players to stand up and put a shift in. Derbyshire's coach Dominic Cork will no doubt bring a lot of experience, but we'll be looking to nullify their top two as quickly as possible and restrict the runs in the power play."
The weather is going to be fantastic and perhaps for the last time this year with 19 degrees predicted for the day.
Gates open at 17:00 with the match kicking off at 19:00 - it will finish by 22:15.
