As the Vitality T20 Blast 2021 progresses, fans will witness a clash between the two formidable South Group teams, Somerset and Surrey. Somerset didn’t have the best start to this competition as they lost their opening match by three wickets against Essex. In that match, they failed to defend 185 runs.
On the other hand, we have Surrey, who managed to defeat their arch-rivals, Middlesex, to begin their campaign on quite a positive note. They scored 223 for 7 in their 20 overs and then defended that total to register a win by a big margin of 54 runs.
