T20 Vitality Blast, 2018
Surrey vs Somerset, South Group
As the caravan of the T20 Vitality Blast rolls on, Surrey will take on Somerset in what is expected to be a highly riveting encounter.
Venue- Kennington Oval, London
Match Timings- Friday, July 27, 2018, 11:00 PM IST
Surrey came into their last fixture against Kent on the back of two successive wins over Essex and Surrey respectively and looked well-on-course for another victory when their batsmen spearheaded by Aaron Finch (83) and Rory Burns (50) led them to 6-250 in 2-0 overs. But unfortunately, the match got washed out and Surrey will hope to emulate the same performance when they take on Somerset on Friday.
Somerset, on the other hand, is coming off a 30-run win over Glamorgan in their previous fixture. Corey Anderson was the Player of the match as his 29-ball-59 along with James Hildreth (56) helped Glamorgan post 5-190 in 20 overs which was defended by ease thanks to the all-round bowling attack spearheaded by Max Waller (2-20).
