Somerset have enjoyed a good season of the T20 Blast. They have played 10 games so far, winning 10 and losing just three. Hampshire, on the other hand, have had a mixed tournament and won five and lost as many in their 10 games. Somerset lost to Surrey by 3 wickets in the last game. It was a low-scoring game where Somerset could only post 144-8 but made the chase tough for Surrey. Hampshire too lost to Surrey in their last game. Surrey chased 151 with wickets to spare against Hampshire.
It’s a high scoring ground as it’s not very big and the pitch is pretty good for batting. Over 360 runs were scored in the match when Somerset played Gloucestershire here recently.
The weather is not very promising as there are 80 percent chance of rain on the match day.

Hampshire are without Jack Leach and Craig Overton who are on national duties. Both teams are likely to field the same team that played in the last match.
Both sides have faced each other 25 times, with Somerset winning 14 of the matches.
Rilee Rossouw has been outstanding for Somerset and is the leading run scorer for the team with 443 runs. He is a player that can play long inning thus should be in the team.
James Vince has been sensational for Hampshire and has scored 399 runs in just 9 games at an average nearing 50. He is one of the best T20 batters and should be in the team as well.
He can be a very good choice for the wicketkeeper because he is highly regarded as one of the most destructive T20 players in the world. On his day, he can decimate the best bowling lineups.
A very experienced player who bowls tight lines and not allows the players hit him easily. Van der Merwe is a valuable addition to the team.
He was in good form in the last game and picked up 3 wickets for 25 runs to help Somerset stay in the game.
Dream11 Captain – Rilee Rossouw
