About the Match

Things will begin to get tough for the teams placed in the bottom of the table if they aren't able to register wins soon. Middlesex and Somerset are two such teams from North group that haven't found their rhythm yet. Somerset have played three games and are yet to taste success. Middlesex, on the other hand, have won just one game out of total of three games. The two teams now lock horns at Lord's Cricket Ground on 16th July 2017. With both teams desperately looking for a win, a thrilling contest is certainly on the cards.

Middlesex>/h2> Middlesex have been a tad unlucky in the tournament so far. They tied with Gloucestershire in their first match, thanks to a brilliant innings from Ryan Higgins. They've won one and lost one after that. Their last match was against Hampshire where they lost a nail-biting encounter. Their struggle in batting was clearly evident with no batsman able to get going against Hampshire. The same can be validated from the fact that Tim Southee was the top scorer who scored 64 runs from 32 balls and took the team closer to the required total. The same story but with different ending on display in the game they won against Surrey. They won that match by one wicket and got the crucial two points. Overall, Middlesex have a strong team with former Aussie limited overs skipper, George Bailey, and Shahid Afridi in their squad. Players have gotten out it in trying to hard and will try to make amends to win the next encounter.

Somerset

Just like Middlesex, Somerset too haven't had best of the starts to the tournament. They've played three games so far and have garnered just one point due to the virtue of one game being washed out due to rain. Corey Anderson was the only bright star in their earlier game, but he too is set to miss the match as he's still recovering from back spasm. They still have the services of Jim Allenby, James Hildreth, Steve Davies and experienced Peter Trego who can be mighty effective on their day. Even in the rain curtailed, Somerset never looked in rhythm with Jacques Rudolph marrying on indisciplined Somerset bowlers. Overall, Somerset is a unit, but the injuries to Corey Anderson and Johann Myburgh have made things a little tougher for them. The rest of the team would have to bring their A-Game in order to make a match out of it.

Our Prediction

Both the teams have had difficult time so far given the narrow loss, a tie, and rain stopping them from marching forward. Middlesex have looked more solid and have more match time than Someset. With a win already to their name, batsmen in reasonably good form coupled with poor display from Somerset make Middlesex favorites in this upcoming encounter
