Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Vitality Blast T20 2019 - Somerset v Surrey
The next south group match of the Vitality Blast T20 2019 will be played between Somerset and Surrey at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.
Both Surrey and Somerset find themselves in the bottom half of the south group points table. While Surrey have won one and lost three out of their five matches and have three points, Somerset are just below them with one win and three losses from four matches.
After making headlines with his impressive performances in the ODI World Cup, Babar Azam has continued on his merry ways with 220 runs from four matches at an average of close to 75 for Somerset. Opener Tom Banton has also been good with 144 runs from four innings.
Among the bowlers, Jerome Taylor has picked up six wickets for the team from four games, while Lewis Gregory has picked up five from three innings.
Aaron Finch has scored the most runs for Surrey, with 119 runs from five innings. Will Jacks, who comes out to bat at one drop, has 110 runs from five innings.
Gareth Batty and Tom Curran are the leading bowlers for Surrey with eight and seven wickets respectively. Imran Tahir also has six scalps, but unexpectedly has gone at an economy of close to nine. Tahir has actually been taken to the cleaners quite often this season.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
Somerset- Tom Banton, Babar Azam, Peter Trego, James Hildreth, Tom Abell, Lewis Gregory, Tom Lammonby, Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Jerome Taylor, Max Waller
Surrey- Aaron Finch, Mark Stoneman, Will Jacks, Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes, Jordan Clark, Tom Curran, Rikki Clarke, Ryan Patel, Gareth Batty, Imran Tahir
