After a brief break of almost a week, the T20 Blast 2022 games will be back in line and will witness Somerset take on Gloucestershire in the 74th match of the tournament. Somerset emerged victorious when the two teams last met in the 60th match of this season as they got an advantage of the D/L method due to rain stopping the game.

Somerset are currently placed in the second spot with 10 points to their name from five victories off seven matches. Gloucestershire has played eight games, winning four, losing three, and one resulting in no result as they are placed fourth in the South Group points table with nine points. Both teams are placed in the top half of the table and thus the competition will be exciting.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match

Rilee Rossouw:

Somerset batter Rilee Rossouw has been in terrific form at the T20 Blast this season. In just seven games, he has managed to bag 298 runs at an average of 59.60 and a brilliant strike rate of 191.02. Having scored three half-centuries already, he will be looking to record another high-scoring knock at the top of the order to get his team back to winning ways.

Probable best bowler of the match

David Payne:

Gloucestershire’s David Payne has been very impressive this season, having picked the most number of wickets in the tournament. His economy is a tad bit high at 7.37, but he has scalped 17 wickets in seven games, including his best bowling figures of 4/15. He will look to continue the wicket-taking spree against Somerset in order to carry his team’s winning momentum.
