Surrey are favorites to win
Surrey will take on Somerset in the 2022 Vitality Blast. The game will be played at The Kia Oval, London starting at 18:30 local time on Tuesday June 21st.
Surrey are top of the South Group and remain unbeaten across all formats so far this season. In the T20 Blast they have won eight games with their away fixture against Glamorgan ended by rain earlier in the campaign. Their last victory was on Sunday against in-form Hampshire Hawks in Southampton. The Hawks had won their previous five matches in the tournament but were beaten by 4 wickets thanks to an excellent team effort with both bat and ball from Surrey.
Somerset are in second place, three points behind Surrey, in the South Group table but with a three point cushion above Essex Eagles in third. The Eagles were defeated by 8 wickets in Somerset’s last match, in Chelmsford on Sunday. Jack Brooks took 2-23 and was the standout bowler as Essex produced a useful score of 188-5. In reply, openers Will Smeed and Tom Banton began the innings aggressively but it was numbers three and four in the batting order, Rilee Rossouw and Tom Abell who both scored unbeaten half-centuries, who comfortably got Somerset home.
