Somerset Team News & Playing 11

SOM Team News

Although Somerset have not won any of their last three games, they are still well placed in the South Group ahead of this match. Before Thursday’s fixtures, they were in third place but can not afford to drop points as they are level with their local rivals Gloucestershire in fifth.

SOM Team Batting

Somerset have one of the strongest batting line-ups across the South Group and their top three of Tom Banton, Will Smeed and Tom Kohler-Cadmore all have the ability to win a match single-handedly. Banton comes into this game after hitting 77 not out from 46 balls in the last fixture.

SOM Team Bowling

Although Somerset were beaten by Gloucestershire in their last match here in Taunton, captain Lewis Gregory produced another strong bowling performance. Jake Ball will be keen to be more economical in this game after conceding 45 runs from four overs against Gloucestershire.

SOM Team Form

Somerset have lost two and got one no-result from their last three games in the tournament.

Surrey Team News & Playing 11

SUR Team News

Top of the South Group, Surrey have had yet another strong tournament so far even though they have seen plenty of changeover in their side due to the T20 World Cup and now tournaments like the Major League Cricket. They come into this match with a large gap to the teams below them. 

SUR Team Batting

In a rain affected game against Kent Spitfires in their last match, Surrey posted an impressive 103/5 from their ten overs. Red-ball expert Dom Sibley is likely to open again for Surrey and will show off his rarely seen attacking strokes in this fixture. 

SUR Team Bowling

Although they are no longer able to call upon the services of Australians Sean Abbott and Spencer Johnson, Surrey do have England’s T20 World Cup Semi-Finalists in captain Chris Jordan and Reece Topley back in the side. The whole attack will need to be at their best against a strong Somerset top order.

SUR Team Form

Surrey have been very impressive in this campaign with seven wins along with only one defeat and one tie.

Surrey Predicted Playing 11

Ryan Patel, Dom Sibley, Laurie Evans, Chris Jordan (c), Rory Burns (wk), Jordan Clark, Ben Geddes, OFM Sykes, Cameron Steel, Daniel Worrall, Reece Topley

🏆 Somerset vs Surrey Prediction

Plenty of neutral fans will be following this game as two of the best T20 Blast teams from recent years go head to head once again. Surrey ran out as easy winners by 54 runs when they met at the start of June and we are backing them to come out on top again although our prediction is for a much closer contest.
