Weather Conditions

Taunton is expected to have dark and cloudy weather with 60-70% chances of rain and weather interruptions are expected to make some disturbances in this game.

Venue Details

Taunton is a high scoring ground and batters will have an upper hand here in this ground. The pitch might aid bowlers as the match progresses by slowing down considerably. We can expect a run feast of 180-190 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option with placid batting conditions and ran threat looming around the corner. Both skippers will put the opposition batters to bat on this track early on.

Both teams won their respective opening matches in a clinical fashion chasing the target. Somerset bowling attack looked more incisive with the new ball using the swing and seam movement effectively. They also have more experienced batters in the middle overs when compared to the Essex in this match with home conditions to their advantage too. We expect Somerset to win this match.
