NOR vs SOM Match & Analysis

Northamptonshire won its previous match against Worcestershire with ease and ensured that it would get off to a good start in the T20 Blast. It is now going to go up against a strong Somerset side, albeit one that is missing some of its best players.

Somerset has not played any cricket in the Blast so far although it does have one point to its name from the rained-out opening match.

Northamptonshire vs Somerset T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at the county Ground, Northampton on the 30th of August 2020.

NOR vs SOM Team Previews


An excellent bowling performance from Northants was the basis on which it won its previous match against Worcestershire. Josh Cobb, Ben Sanderson, and Paul Stirling bowled very well to keep their opponents down to just 127.

That score was never going to be enough but Stirling’s 80 off just 49 deliveries made it a no contest.

Northamptonshire has a strong batting lineup and will be dangerous in this tournament if it can remain consistent. Paul Stirling, Richard Levi, Joshua Cobb, Adam Rossington, and Alex Wakely are all pretty good with the bat.

There is enough power here to make Somerset nervous.

The real challenge is going to be making sure that the lineup lives up to its potential because Stirling, Levi, and company are not the most dependable batsmen.

Northamptonshire Playing 11

Richard Levi, PR Stirling, Josh Cobb, Adam Rossington, Alex Wakely, Saif Zaib, Gareth Berg, Graeme White, Nathan Buck, Ben Sanderson, Brandon Glover.


Somerset has a lot to look forward to in the T20 Blast. Babar Azam has confirmed that he will be joining the club, Tom Banton is smashing bowlers around the world, and Lewis Gregory is now recognized as one of the leading all-rounders in the country.

All three of them are going to be unavailable for this match as they are on England duty. Without them, the batting looks a bit thin. Tom Abell is going to be under the spotlight after going for an insane amount of money in the draft for the ‘Hundred’. He will need to lead the attack alongside James Hildreth and Ed Byrom.

The bowling will call upon Jamie Overton, Craig Overton, Max Waller, and Roelof van der Merwe. This is a very good attack and one that is going to test the Northants batting.

Somerset is far from its best but we still think it could have enough to challenge Northants in this match.

NOR vs SOM Betting Tips

We think that Somerset is going to be able to pull off a win in this match. They are not at full strength but still have a lot of experience in their lineup. The batting for Northants is impressive but quite capable of collapsing.

Bet on Somerset to win.
