SOM vs HAM Match Prediction & Analysis

Hampshire is still looking for its first win of the T20 Blast 2019 and with three matches already gone, Hampshire will be feeling the heat. The team will be traveling to Somerset to take one of the most consistent T20 sides in English county cricket.

Somerset has won one and lost the other out of the two matches it has played so far. A batting collapse in the previous match against Kent would have raised some concerns about its side but a return to home should help it feel confident going into this match.

Somerset vs Hampshire Vitality T20 Blast 2019 match is going to be played at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton, on the 26th of July 2019.

Team Previews

Somerset

An uncharacteristically poor batting performance from Somerset was the reason for its defeat to Kent in the previous game. They were set a target of 166 to win, something that is not too difficult in the T20 Blast 2019, and fell short by 41 runs.

Only two of the batsmen were able to get starts and even they were not able to convert that into a big score.

Somerset prides itself on its T20 batting capabilities and we think that they are going to strike back strongly in this match.

Babar Azam is rated as the best batsman in the world when it comes to T20 cricket. His consistency in this format has been unbelievable and we have no doubt that he is just an inning or two away from a big score.

Babar Azam is opening the batting for Somerset and perhaps he may consider coming in at number three for a few games, just to return to the spot he is most comfortable at.

Peter Trego, James Hildreth, and Tom Abell make for a strong middle order as well.

The bowling is led by the Overton brothers, Jerome Taylor, and Max Waller with Roelof van der Merwe as the spinner. Somerset knows it is going to be coming up against a tough batting side I Hampshire and will want to get its disciplines right.

Hampshire

It is surprising to see the side of the quality of Hampshire struggle to get its first win although a closer look shows that there may be no reason to panic just yet. One of their three games was washed out and they ended up scoring 174 in their previous game against a very good bowling attack.

Hampshire’s batting lineup is very impressive. Aneurin Donald and Rille Rossow at the top of the order, followed by James Vince, Sam Northeast, and three talented all-rounders.

Of course, Sussex ripped out the heart of its batting within the space of four balls and ensured that they recorded an easy victory.

Rossow top-scored with 60 runs to his name but did not get the support he would have expected.

The players in this lineup are too good to fail for too long and we are certain that a very big score from this Hampshire batting lineup is coming.

The Hampshire bowling attack would have been disappointed to let Sussex score 188 against them in the previous match. Kyle Abbott was very expensive, giving away 51 runs in his four overs, while Mason Crane went at nearly 11 runs an over as well.

Chris Morris, Liam Dawson, and Chris Wood did a decent job but the others will have to improve if they are to get by unscathed against a strong Somerset batting lineup.

Hampshire certainly has the players to win but getting its entire combination firing at the same time is proving to be an issue.

SOM vs HAM Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss may want to field first. Taunton can be a difficult place to defend a score at and the rai around may bring DLS calculations in play as well.

Pitch and Conditions

Somerset vs Hampshire T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. Some scattered showers are being forecast for match day but we should still be able to get a full game in.

The pitch at Taunton is one of the best for batting in the country. The boundaries are small and invite the batsmen to hit over the top. If the weather remains dry during the match then we could be looking at a score of 180 as par on this surface.

SOM vs HAM Betting Tips

Somerset is a very good T20 side and is playing at home. Hampshire, though, could be undervalued by the market. It has a large number of powerful batsmen in its lineup and a very good bowling attack to back them up.

We are not losing hope in Hampshire just yet.

Bet on Hampshire to win.
