|Venue||Kennington Oval, London|
It’s the top-of-the-table clash in the South Group. Both Surrey and Somerset have been fantastic in the tournament so far. Surrey has played nine games and won eight of them, while Somerset is not far behind with seven wins in nine games. Both teams are coming in from wins in their last game. Surrey defeated Hampshire by 4 wickets in the last game, while Somerset thrashed Essex by eight wickets. Batters from both teams are in great form and we should be in for a run feast, even though the wicket has not produced big run-scoring matches in the last two games.
The average score at this pitch in the last two games has been around 150, which is not very high. However, teams chasing have won three of the last four games, with the only loss coming while chasing a target of 209. It batters apply themselves, runs are on offer for them.
The weather will be slightly cloudy but rain should stay away from the game. The maximum temperature will be 26 degrees while the minimum could come down to as low as 12.
Will Jacks, Jamie Smith (wk), Rory Burns, Laurie Evans, Sunil Narine, Conor McKerr, Kieron Pollard, Chris Jordan (c), Gus Atkinson, Daniel Moriarty, Daniel Worrall

Both teams have announced more of less the same squad that featured in their last games.
The two sides have met 21 times in T20 cricket. Somerset have won on six occasions, Surrey have won 11 times
The left hander has been in terrific form of late. He is the leading run scorer of the tournament with 437 runs in 9 games at an average of 72. A top pick for any team.
Laurie Evans has blown hot and cold in the tournament, but he is a player who on his day will fetch a lot of fantasy points. He can decimate the best bowling attacks in the world.
Kieron Pollard finally came back to form with a crucial 34 off 22 balls in a crucial chase. This inning will give him a lot of confidence and we may see a Pollard of old in the coming matches
If it’s a T20 game, Sunil Narine is a must in any team. He is a top bowler in this format while he is no mug with the bat. He can tonk the ball big and can be used as a floater.
Dream11 Captain – Rilee Rossouw
Dream11 Vice Captain – Sunil Narine
