Somerset defeated Essex Eagles in the last game, and the side sits at the top of the points table.
Somerset has won the last six games, and they have their batsmen and bowlers in good form. The side will look to carry the same form and become the first team to book a berth in the quarterfinal. It will be a massive challenge for Hampshire Hawks, but they have won the last three games. With both teams in good form, we expect a cracker of a contest.
James Vince’s side has done well in the tournament. The side comes into this game with three consecutive wins. In the last game, it was a nail-biting contest against Middlesex, where they won by 5 runs.

Ben McDermott and Vince have played well, and the pair will look to deliver a good start in this game. They have a formidable middle order and will expect runs from Toby Albert, Joe Weatherley, and Ross Whiteley. Aneurin Donald, Liam Dawson, and Chris Wood add to the side’s batting strengths.

Lewis Gregory’s side is having an excellent run in the tournament. They have won the last six games and shall be eying their seventh win of the season. They defeated the Essex Eagles in the last game by 11 runs. A win here will nearly ensure them a place in the quarterfinals, and Gregory will aim for that in this game.
Will Smeed and Tom Lammonby form a strong opening pair, and they would look to deliver a strong start. Tom Kohler-Cadmore can destroy bowling attacks and would aim to add runs in the middle order with Abell and Lewis Gregory. Sean Dickson, Roelof van der Merwe, and Ben Green add solidity to this line-up in the lower middle order.
Matt Henry bowled well in the last game, and he will look to grab early wickets, sharing the new ball with Craig Overton. Peter Siddle brings lots of experience, and the side would expect him to check the flow of runs in the middle overs along with Ben Green. Lewis Gregory and van der Merwe add bowling options for the team.

The skies over Southampton would be clear on June 07. The wicket here is challenging to bat on, as seen in the series. The ball would move and also stop on the batsmen. The side batting first in this game shall be happy with a score of 170 runs.
The Rose Bowl, Southampton, is a good surface to bowl on for the fast bowlers. The ball moves, and bowlers generate bounce from the surface. Batsmen need to adjust themselves to the pace on the surface before they start playing their strokes. Spinners haven’t had the best of success here with no assistance.
Three games played so far have seen the side winning the game while chasing. It has historically been a low-scoring wicket where the sides have found it tough to post an imposing score on the board. The side winning the toss shall not hesitate to bowl first in this game.
The Hampshire Hawks have to fix their weakness with the ball. Their bowlers will bowl to some of the best hitters, and they have to be a6t their best. Somerset has done well since the start of the season, and they have their key players in good form. On a tricky batting surface, they start favorites.
