T20 Blast is picking up momentum in the league phase with every team trying to place themselves in the top-4 of the points table. Every team is fighting hard for the 2 crucial points which moves them ahead of other teams in the table. Hampshire lost their first 4 matches but picked up momentum and won their next 5 matches on a trot but their winning streak ended with a loss in their last encounter against Surrey. Somerset are holding a comfortable position in the points table at the second position and will look to further strengthen their position in the table with a win in this match.
Tom Banton (39 runs), Lammonby (21 runs) and Goldsworthy (27 runs) played good cameos to take their team to a total of 144/8 in their 20 overs. Rilee Rossouw (443 runs), Tom Abell (206 runs), and Will Smeed (230 runs) have been their prolific run scorers and they will hope hem to get back amongst the runs in this match to help them post a big total.
Lewis Gregory and Van Der Merwe picked up 4 wickets between them and restricted the run flow effectively in the last game. Peter Siddle picked up 3 wickets but went for runs at 10+RPO in a low scoring match. Their bowlers bowled well but were unlucky to lose the match in a final ball thriller.

Hampshire ended with below par 151/7 in their 20 overs. James Vince (30 runs) and Joe Weatherley (29 runs) looked good with their starts but failed to carry on while James Fuller played a 22-ball 39 run blinder to take them across 150-run mark. Tom Prest, Albert, and Ross Whitely are struggling for consistency and will be looking for some big runs in this match.
Liam Dawson, James Fuller, and Mason Crane picked up 2 each in the last game. Brad Wheal is the leading wicket taker with 13 scalps and we expect him to make a comeback into the playing XI in this match. Mason Crane, Fuller, and Chris Wood have taken 12 wickets apiece so far.

Taunton is expected to have a partly cloudy weather with just 60-70% chances of rain on the match day. We expect to have a full match with little weather interruptions.
Taunton pitch is a good hard surface and the ball will come onto the bat nicely. Batters will have an upper hand on this venue. Teams have posted scores in excess of 170+ runs in the last 5-6 innings played here. We expect the average scores around 180-190 runs.
The pitch is good for batting and teams will opt to bowl first as no target is safe in the second innings here. And rain and DLS equation also make captains to bowl first at this venue.
Somerset has been very consistent in their performance this season and are always placed in the top-half of the points table. They will hope for a much improved performance from their players in this match. Hampshire after a poor start made a brilliant turnaround and will look to shrug off their loss in the last match to continue their momentum. We expect Somerset to win this match owing to their home conditions.
