Sussex Sharks v Somerset - 2:30PM

What does the Somerset skipper Lewis Gregory say about Sussex Sharks?

“They are a very good T20 team with potentially one of the best attacks in the whole competition. We’re going to have to step up and counteract that. However, equally I think that we have got one of the best batting line-ups in the competition, so it’s going to be a big match. We’ve already beaten them once this year and put in a really strong performance at their place, so hopefully we can go and do the same on Saturday.”

Who will win? – Sussex Sharks

Top Batsman (Runs Scored) – James Hildreth Somerset, Luke Wright (Sussex Sharks)

Top Bowler (Wickets taken) – Jerome Taylor Somerset, Tymal Mills (Sussex Sharks)

Most Sixes – Corey Anderson Somerset, Laurie Evans (Sussex Sharks)

Team Scores Batting First – Somerset 160+, Sussex 180+

 

Sussex Sharks Probable Squad - 10. Luke Wright (capt.), 22. Jofra Archer , 18. Will Beer, 21. Danny Briggs, 42. Tom Bruce , 5. Michael Burgess (wk.), 32. Laurie Evans, 6. Harry Finch, 8. Chris Jordan, 7. Tymal Mills, 9. Delray Rawlins, 25. Ollie Robinson, 28. Phil Salt, 96. David Wiese
