Richard Dawson‘s men are favorite over Matthew Maynard’s players. But, things can be changed if Glamorgan will bowl well. Although Gloucestershire is an unfashionable team in recent years they like to do the job out of the spotlight. They have more chance to clinch the relatively low-scoring match.
