THE PREDICTION

Somerset kept their hopes of knockout qualification alive with victory over Glamorgan in Cardiff thanks to a wonderful century from overseas batsman Babar Azam. Defeat here though could prove fatal to their chances, should other results go against them. Northamptonshire Steelbacks know that victory here could guarantee them qualification should Birmingham Bears lose later in the evening. A close game looks likely with Somerset pinning their hopes once again on Babar for the bulk of their runs. With home advantage in their favour, we’re backing the South West county to triumph in what will be an intriguing contest.
