Gloucestershire suffer another Vitality Blast washout at Essex

Gloucestershire suffered their third successive Vitality Blast washout at Essex Eagles' Chelmsford.


Gloucestershire hasn’t bowled a ball in their last three trips to Essex in T20 cricket, after similarly rain-affected matches in 2017 and 2018.


Chelmsford: Essex v Gloucestershire - no result


And 2019 was added to that list as umpires Nick Cook and Neil Bainton called the game off, without a toss, after persistent rain.

In truth, there never appeared a chance of any play after steady rain throughout most of the afternoon; with more precipitation forecast throughout the rest of the evening.

The point aside means both Gloucestershire and Essex remain with just one win from their opening three and four fixtures respectively.


Gloucestershire has been particularly unfortunate with the weather so far in this competition with two no results.


While sixth-placed Essex has lost to Middlesex and Kent Spitfires, either side of a sensational victory against Surrey.

Both sides are next in action on Thursday evening, with Essex hosting Hampshire and Gloucestershire traveling to winless Glamorgan.
