ham vs som Match Prediction & Analysis

Somerset and Hampshire are the two extremes of the points table with Somerset comfortably at the second position while Hampshire are at the bottom most position. Somerset are almost qualified and every win from here on while further more strengthen their position in the table. Hampshire despite being at the bottom have a slight chance to qualify if they win all their remaining matches. And to their aid they have all their remaining 4 matches at their home venue at Southampton.  

Teams Preview

Hampshire Preview

Hampshire made a competitive 176 runs in their last game with Tom Prest playing the most part of the 20 overs and scored 59 runs off 42 balls. Joe weatherly (30 runs) and James Fuller (38 runs) played vital cameos to build crucial partnerships. Tom Alsop or Sam Northeast might slot in the playing XI in the place of James Vince leaving for national duty.

Their bowling attack put on a combined performance to put on a chokehold of the opposition as they restricted them to just 166 runs. Chris Wood, Bradley Wheal, Scott Curie, and D Arcy short picked up 5 wickets and gave runs at less than 8 RPO last game. The duo of Colin De GrandHomme and Mason Crane will serve as the fifth bowling option for the team.

Top players to bet on:

Colin De GrandHomme – De GrandHomme has 73 runs and 2 wickets in the 3 matches he played so far. We expect him to make a big score in the middle order and finish their innings with a bang in this match.

Scott Curie – Scott Curie has 8 wickets in just 3 matches and is giving runs at less than 7.5 RPO. He has figures of 4/31, 1/30, & 3/21 in the 3 matches and is looking in superb rhythm with the ball.

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

D Arcy Short, Tom Prest, Colin de Grandhomme, Joe Weatherley, Lewis McManus (wk), James Fuller, Chris Wood, Scott Currie, Mason Crane, Bradley Wheal, Tom Alsop/Sam Northeast

Somerset Preview

Somerset innings had a roller-coaster ride last game as Devon Conway (45 runs) and Will Smeed (33 runs) stitched a superb partnership but Conway`s runout triggered a collapse from 85/1 to 120/7. De Lange hit a quick-fire 20 runs in the far end to take their team to 152 runs in 18.1 overs.

Craig Overton was the star of the last game as he picked up 3 wickets and he will miss this match owing to national commitments. Jack Brooks, Tom Lammonboy, De Lange, Ben Green, and Max Waller kept the scoring rate in check and never allowed opposition to settle down. They reduced the opposition to 114/6 in 16 overs to win the match by 5 runs in DLS method.

Top players to bet on:

Devon Conway – Conway has a dream run in last 12 months scoring runs across all formats and all conditions. He has 235 runs in just 5 matches with 3 fifties in the T20 Blast so far and expect him to continue his splendid form in coming matches too.  

Merchant De Lange – De Lange scored 20 runs off 11 balls and had bowling figures of 2-0-17-1 in the game to help his team win.  He has 11 wickets in this season so far and we expect him to continue his good showing in this match too.

Somerset Predicted Playing XI:

Devon Conway (wk), George Bartlett, Will Smeed, Lewis Goldsworthy, Tom Lammonby, Edward Byrom, Ben Green, Marchant de Lange, Jack Brooks, Max Waller, Tom Abell

Weather Conditions

Southampton will have dark and cloudy weather on the match day with 30-40% chances of rain. Rain might cause some overs to be lost in the match and bring DLS equation into consideration.  

Venue Details

Southampton will aid the faster bowlers with swing and seam around with the new ball. Batsmen will enjoy the true pace and bounce on this track once they survive the new ball.  We expect the runs to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has won both the matches played here and we expect the captains to continue the trend in this game too.       

HAM vs SOM Winning Prediction

Both teams will miss their skippers in this match owing to national duties. Both their bowling attacks have performed well as a pack in the last game to help their team defend the target successfully and will be high on confidence.  Somerset`s middle order fell like a pack of cards but they will make a big comeback in this match. Hampshire will look to take advantage of the home conditions in this match but we expect Somerset to win this match owing to their superb performance in the league so far.

SOMERSET will win this match
