Somerset will take on Surrey at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.


Surrey have had a disappointing season and have been able to win just one out of their seven matches. The team has lost six games and has just two points with a net run rate of -1.065. Surrey would like to to bow out of the competition while taking some positives and would be desperate to win.

Somerset are at third spot with four wins and three losses from seven matches. If they win this match, they have a good chance of qualifying, given their net run-rate. However, Somerset's fate would also depend on the matches of Gloucestershire and Sussex and the team would not want either of these sides to win by a huge margin.

Pakistani opener Azhar Ali is the highest run-scorer for Somerset and has amassed more than 300 runs from seven matches. Middle-order batsmen Peter Trego and James Hildreth have also had good outings. Craig Overton is the highest wicket-taker for Somerset with 14 wickets from seven matches. Josh Davey follows second with nine wickets from seven matches.

Ben Foakes is the only batsman for Surrey to have created some sort of an impact. He has 282 runs from six matches and has managed three half-centuries. Both veterans in their own right, Morne Morkel and Gareth Batty are the highest wicket-takers for Surrey.

 

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Somerset- Tom Banton, Azhar Ali, Peter Trego, James Hildreth, Tom Abell, George Bartlett, Lewis Gregory, Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton, Josh Davey

Surrey- Mark Stoneman, Will Jacks, Dean Elgar, Rory Burns, Jamie Smith, Jordan Clark, Ryan Patel, Ben Foakes, Stuart Meaker, Conor McKerr, Morne Morkel, Gareth Batty
