Somerset vs Northamptonshire Steelbacks 2020 Vitality T20 Blast

Somerset can leapfrog out-of-form Northamptonshire Steelbacks with a win in their 2020 Vitality T20 Blast in the Central Group. The match takes place at Taunton on September 18 and the live action gets underway at 17:00 local time.

Somerset suffered a high-scoring defeat to Gloucestershire in their last game at Taunton, but bounced back last time out with Babar Azam smashing 114* from 62 balls in a total of 183/3 against Glamorgan. They stormed to a 66-run win.

Northamptonshire Steelbacks, meanwhile, have seen their form take a nosedive. They have lost their last three matches and need to arrest their slide if they are going to turn their early-tournament form into a quarter-final place. They only managed 170/7 in reply to Worcestershire’s 178/6 in their most recent game, despite Richard Levi’s half-century.

Somerset Predicted Playing 11

Steven Davies (wk), Babar Azam, Will Smeed, Tom Abell, Lewis Gregory (c), Lewis Goldsworthy, Tom Lammonby, Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Ollie Sale, Max Waller

Somerset vs Northamptonshire Prediction

Somerset, and Babar Azam in particular, was back to his very best last time out and the result keeps them well in contention in the Central Group. That has been helped by Northamptonshire Steelbacks sudden dip in form. Having been the top team in the group, they have come back from the break for the Bob Willis Trophy in winless form and Somerset can take full advantage.

Final Verdict

Back Somerset to beat Northamptonshire Steelbacks
