Gloucestershire can sink Sharks in critical Blast encounter
Skipper Michael Klinger has been impressive
Sussex started their T20 Blast campaign in stellar form but back-to-back abandoned games have hampered their bid for success and they could struggle against Gloucestershire.
The visitors go into the game fresh from a 30-run victory over Glamorgan in which skipper Michael Klinger starred. The Aussie batsman posted an unbeaten 77 against the Welsh side, his second half-century in the competition this year, and he can capitalise on an unsettled Sussex group.
Klinger has also taken an impressive six catches in the competition this year and leads a strong group featuring fearsome bowler Andrew Tye. Tye finished with figures of 3-17 against Glamorgan and is capable of taming the Sussex batting contingent.
Gloucestershire have surpassed 150 runs in all but one of the Blast matches in which they have batted this term and they can take the spoils.
