THE LOWDOWN

Somerset began their Blast campaign by losing to Essex on Wednesday evening. Similar to their County Championship form this season, it was an indifferent top-order performance with several players contributing in the middle-to-lower order to get Somerset up to a reasonable total but three bowlers going over ten runs per over cost them. Surrey, on the other hand, thumped Middlesex in the London derby by setting a target of 224 with Jason Roy and Will Jacks putting on an opening stand of 95 in just 8.2 overs before they comfortably defended the total.

THE PREDICTION

Somerset’s faltering top-order, despite still featuring the likes of Tom Banton and James Hildreth, is likely to come under major scrutiny against a strong bowling attack that features the Curran brothers. Given that, as well as Surrey’s wonderful example of T20 batting yesterday, a Surrey victory is the likely outcome in this one.
