Surrey Preview

Captain Hashim Amla will be hoping that the side can put in an improved batting performance in this home fixture.

In the previous game, Surrey failed to adjust to the conditions and were dismissed for a paltry score of 132 runs. For Surrey, Rikki Clarke looked in decent touch with the bat and scored 35 runs off 62 balls with the help of three fours.

Besides Rikki Clarke, Ryan Patel scored 22 runs off 26 balls with the help of four boundaries, whereas Conor McKerr chipped in with 20 runs off 43 balls.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the experienced players like Mark Stoneman and Hashim Amla to get them off to a decent start. Ryan Patel and Jamie Patel are decent middle-order players that will need to spend time at the crease to find form with the bat.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Conor McKerr, Daniel Moriarity and Matt Dunn to timely provide crucial breakthroughs.

Surrey Predicted Playing XI:

Mark Stoneman, Hashim Amla (c), Ryan Patel, Jamie Smith (wk), Rikki Clarke, Nico Reifer, Tim David, Conor McKerr, Nick Kimber, Daniel Moriarty, Matt Dunn

Weather Conditions

With rain expected to take place during the first half of the game, the bowlers will find it tough to execute their lines and lengths. The batsmen will certainly need to assess the conditions and then go after the bowlers.

Venue Details

Somerset will take heart from the fact that they have won their previous two matches against Surrey in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Toss: To Bowl

The side that wins the toss, would be keen to have a bowl and exploit any moisture present in the wicket. Average first innings score at The Oval is around 250 runs.

Based on performances delivered this season, Somerset will feel that they have an excellent chance of beating Surrey in this home fixture.

With top-order failing to score runs in this year’s Royal London One-Day Cup, Surrey will have to dig deep and put in a splendid batting performance to stop in-form Somerset side.

Expect Somerset to beat Surrey and claim top spot in the Royal London One-Day Cup.
