Glamorgan are favorites to win
Somerset head to Cardiff to play Glamorgan in the 2020 Vitality T20 Blast, with a defeat for either side likely to be terminal for their chances of reaching the quarter-finals. The Central Group fixture, at Sophia Gardens, takes place on September 16 and the live action starts at 18:30 local time.
Glamorgan bowled Northamptonshire Steelbacks out for 98 in their most recent match to win by seven wickets in Cardiff – Timm van der Gugten claiming 3-17 and Prem Sisodiya taking 3-26 – but that was just their second win of the campaign.
When these teams last met, Tom Abell smashed 74* from 45 balls to lead Somerset to victory but Glamorgan could bounce back in their home match, given Somerset have only won one other game in T20 cricket this season.

Tom Abell led Somerset to victory when these teams last met but they have lost four of their other five completed matches in a poor campaign so far. Glamorgan, meanwhile, bowled their way to just their second win of the season last time out. Neither side has played well so far, and yet the winner of this game will keep their hopes of a top-three place alive. Glamorgan bowled well in Cardiff last time out and that could give them the edge in this game.
