som vs glam Match Prediction & Analysis

Royal London One-Day Cup is up and running successfully despite a lot of obstacles coming their way and is truly feasting the audience with good action packed one-day cricket. Glamorgan and Somerset are having a good start to the tournament with no losses so far. But, one of the teams will suffer their first defeat in this match and both teams will be eager to inflict the loss upon the opposition and go ahead in the points table. They will also have to fight it with deferring targets and game situation`s with rain threat around.

James Hildreth anchored the chase with a century while Lewis Goldsworthy scored a crucial 57 runs to close the chase.

Top players to bet on:

James Hildreth – Hildreth scored 110 runs and shared two 100+ partnerships with Steve Davies and Lewis Goldsworthy respectively to anchor the chase. We expect him to play a big role in this match too in the middle order.  

Sony Baker – Sony Baker had bowling figures of 10-1-46-3 in the match and his 2 wickets in the first power play gave an early upper hand to his team.

Somerset Predicted Playing XI:

Glamorgan Preview

Glamorgan openers Hamish Rutherford (86 runs) and Nico Selman (33 runs) started off the match in superb fashion with a 68-run partnership. But their middle order suffered a mini collapse and they were struggling at 167/5. Tom Cullen (58 runs) lead the late charge assault with the likes of Joe Cooke (33 runs) and Callum Taylor (36 runs) for company to take them to 295 runs.

Pacers M Hogan and Joe Cooke picked up 3 wickets each and had combined bowling figures of 14-0-58-6 in the match. Lukas Carey and Callum Taylor chipped with 3 crucial wickets while Andy Gorvin and Reingold bowled economically in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Tom Cullen – Cullen scored 58 runs off 44 balls and played a crucial knock that gave their momentum and flourish in the finish. We expect him to continue his superb batting in this match too.    

Joe Cooke – Cooke had yet another all-round performance in this match with 3 wickets and late 18-ball 33-run blast with the bat. He has scored 55 run and claimed 6 wickets in the 2 matches so far.

Weather Conditions

Taunton is expected to have 80% chances of rain as per the weather forecasters and we expect overs reduction in the game by DLS method.   

Venue Details

Taunton is batting paradise where almost 300 runs were scored in both the innings in the last game. Batters kept attacking the bowlers despite the wickets owing to true bounce and pace on this track. We expect scores to be around 300-320 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option with flat track (nightmare for bowlers) and rain threat around in this match. Overcast conditions might cause the ball swing early in the match.        

SOM vs GLAM Winning Prediction

Glamorgan are putting up complete performance with the bat and ball in the 2 matches so far. They have contributions from top order, middle order, and lower order so far. Somerset made the competitive total look small as they chased the target with ease. Their middle order put on big partnerships in the middle and bowlers performed exceptionally well on an unresponsive track. We expect Somerset to win this match in their home ground.

SOMERSET will win this match
