THE LOWDOWN

Somerset came agonisingly close to their first ever County Championship title in 2019, but narrowly lost out to Essex. The perennial red ball bridesmaids will be hoping that a new tournament brings a change of luck against a Glamorgan side who narrowly missed out on promotion to Division One of the County Championship in 2019.

THE PREDICTION

Both sides with be without key batsman for this clash, Somerset’s Tom Banton is on England duty, whilst Glamorgan’s overseas player Marnus Labuschagne is unavailable due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Glamorgan without Labuschagne are a fairly weak outfit and Somerset being a well drilled red ball side with a destructive bowling attack will be expected to come out on top here.
