Somerset would be taking on Glamorgan in the next South Group game in the Vitality T20 Blast, 2022 at their home ground. The hosts suffered their first loss of the season in the last game as they had a poor outing with the ball against Sussex Sharks. Glamorgan on the other hand would be confident after their win against the Essex Eagles in the last game.
Somerset has had an excellent record against Glamorgan, and they have won the last seven games between the two teams. They have enjoyed a good record at home and used the conditions well here. Glamorgan shall look to break their poor record against Somerset in this game and we hope to see a close contest here.
After three consecutive wins, Tom Abell’s side suffered its first loss of the season in the last game against the Sussex Sharks. It was a poor display with the ball from the team as they conceded 216 runs to end up losing the game by 47 runs. The side hasn’t lost a game against Glamorgan since 2017 and Abell would like to build on that record with a good show playing in front of their home crowd.
Tom Banton hasn’t been in the best of form, and he needs to fire at the top opening the batting with Will Smeed. Rilee Rossouw and Tom Abell are looking good in the middle order and the pair shall look to set up a good platform for the likes of Tom Lammonby, Lewis Gregory, and Roelof van der Merwe to launch the attack towards the end. It is their depth in the batting department that makes the side strong.
Their bowlers come into this game after a poor performance in the last game. Josh Davey and Lammonby will need to bowl tight spells at the start of the game for the side to do well. Marchant de Lange, van der Merwe, and Ben Green are experienced bowlers, and they must bring it to play here. Lewis Goldsworthy and Gregory add to the bowling options for the side making it strong.

David Lloyd’s side hasn’t been consistent so far in the tournament. They have lost two out of the four games they have played. It was a good effort from their bowlers in the last game against Essex Eagles that saw them to a 6-wicket win. However, there are several concerns in the batting department and Lloyd shall like to iron them out here.
Sam Northeast has been in great form, but the side would like to see Lloyd score runs as he has been getting out playing poor strokes. Marnus Labuschagne hasn’t lived up to the expectations and he needs to hold together the middle order with Kiran Carlson and Chris Cooke. The side would like to see runs from Daniel Douthwaite and Andrew Salter as Somerset’s bowlers showed signs of struggle in the last game.
Michael Hogan is enjoying a good run in the season, and he will need to get early wickets along with Michael Neser who bowled brilliantly in the last game. Daniel Douthwaite and James Weighell also come here after good spells in the last game, and this would add to the side’s confidence. Prem Sisodiya and Labuschagne will have a big challenge at hand as the small size of the ground would test them.

The skies over Taunton would have thick cloud cover on June 03 and we expect to see spells of rain during the game. The otherwise flat surface would be slightly challenging to bat on with the ball seaming and swinging around. However, the side batting first would aim at a total above 180 runs to feel safe on this ground.
The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton is one of the smallest county grounds and a paradise for batsmen. There have been bit totals at this venue in the past as batsmen can cross the boundary ropes easily. There is some assistance for fast bowlers with the new ball. It can be a nightmare for the spinners as the small dimensions put more pressure on them.
It is one of the best batting surfaces in England and being a small ground, we have seen sides put up big scores on the board. Bowlers find it tough to contain batsmen and we have seen high-scoring contests here. The side winning the toss in this game should have no hesitation in batting first.
Glamorgan’s form with the bat is a big concern for the side going into this contest. Key players in their top order are yet to strike form and the side would need them to deliver. Their record against Somerset has been extremely poor and this is likely to dominate their minds. Somerset is playing at home and comes here with an enviable record against Glamorgan. This would make them favorites to win this contest.
