Surrey scored a record total of 223 runs and won the match comfortably by 58 runs. They will be high on confidence after such a massive win and their all-rounder Curran brothers contributed both with the bat and ball effectively.  Somerset come into this match as they lost their opening match despite making 185 runs with the bat. They have a lot of positives despite the loss and will look to correct their bowling flaws to win this match and get their first points on board.

Somerset Preview

Somerset led the charge on the opposition scoring 62 runs inside 4 overs with Tom Banton (18 runs) and Jack Hildreth (38 runs) scoring at a strike rate of 200+. They suffered a collapse from 62/0 to 63/3 & 79/4 in quick time. Edward Byrom (28 runs) and Lewis Gregory (24 runs) steadied the innings while Ben green (43 runs) and Merchant De Lange (18 runs) finished with a flourish to take them to 185 runs.

Josh Davey and Jack Brooks picked up 3 wickets inside the powerplay to give a good start. But their bowlers failed to pick wickets in regular intervals as they failed to defend the target. De Lange and Josh Davey picked up 3 wickets each in the match.

Top players to bet on:

Jack Hildreth: Hildreth looked in amazing touch as he scored 39 runs off 18 balls with 6 boundaries and 2 sixes. But his dismissal triggered a collapse and he will look to bat deep in this match and take his team to a massive total.

Merchant De Lange: De Lange had bowling figures of 4-0-35-3 and tied his best to trouble the opposition in the middle overs. He also contributed with the bat scoring 18 runs off 7 balls in the final overs.

Somerset Predicted Playing XI:

Tom Banton (wk), James Hildreth, Roelof van der Merwe, Tom Abell (c), Edward Byrom, Lewis Gregory, Ben Green, Marchant de Lange, Josh Davey, Jack Brooks, Max Waller

Somerset Actual Playing XI:

Marchant de Lange, Ben Green, Lewis Gregory, Tom Abell, Josh Davey, Max Waller, Will Smeed, Jack Brooks, Eddie Byrom, Tom Banton, James Hildreth

Surrey Preview

Surrey scored a massive score of 223 runs in their opening game with the bat. Jason Roy (45 runs) and Will Jacks (70 runs) were brutal at the top and shared a 95-run opening partnership for the team. Their middle order of Sam Curran (21 runs), Jamie Overton (27 runs), and Tom Curran (25 runs) kept scoring quickfire runs despite the fall of wickets to take them to a massive total. 

Sam Curran and Tom Curran were the star with the ball too as they had combined figures of 8-0-55-4 with Sam Curran claiming all 4 wickets. Daniel Moriarty, Gareth Batty, and Jordan Clark picked up one wicket each and they restricted the opposition to 169/6 to win by a big margin of 54 runs

Top players to bet on:

Will Jacks: Jacks was brutal in the game scoring 70 runs off just 24 balls with 9 boundaries and 5 sixes. He will look to repeat his performance in this match too and put the opposition bowlers on backfoot straightaway. 

Sam Curran: Sam Curran had bowling figures of 4-0-29-4 and scored 21 runs with the bat too. He is an effective all-rounder who can contribute with both bat and ball equally. 

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Will Jacks, Laurie Evans, Jamie Smith (wk), Sam Curran, Jordan Clark, Jamie Overton, Tom Curran, Gareth Batty (c), Matt Dunn, Daniel Moriarty

Weather Conditions

Taunton has overcast conditions and we expect some rain interruptions in this match. Overs might be lost and DLS equation might come into the picture effectively.

Venue Details

Taunton is a batting paradise and the batsmen will have a big advantage over the bowlers. Bowlers will need to execute their plans to perfection to stop the run flow. We can expect run feast of 180-200 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best strategy in batting paradise as any target can be achieved nowadays. Last match 180+ runs was chased down here by the team batting second easily.

Surrey are really on a roll and they are picking up right from where they left last season. They have a strong team with a no. of all-rounders who are contributing with the bat and ball in middle overs alongside attacking openers. They have all the bases covered with their playing XI. Somerset too have a quality batting line-up, but their bowling lacks the X-factor player who can give wickets when required. They need to perform as a pack to stop the opposition batting from scoring big runs. We expect Surrey to win this match owing to their winning record & Somerset`s poor home run in recent past.

SURREY WILL WIN THE MATCH
