The regular season of the T20 Blast 2019 is heading for a photo finish in the South Group as five teams still have a chance of making it to the T20 Blast 2019 playoffs heading into their final group match. The two teams playing this match, Somerset and Middlesex, are on the exact same number of points.
They both have 13 points and are separated by just net run-rate. Both of the teams need to win to be able to have a chance of qualifying. In the case of Middlesex winning alone may not be enough due to its poor net run-rate and so the margin of victory may be decisive as well.
There are too many variables for teams to fathom and a number of matches taking place at the same time. The first task is to win the match.
Somerset vs Middlesex T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on the 30th of August 2019.
Two losses in its last three matches have forced Somerset to be in a must-win situation even after starting the T20 blast 2019 very well. It just shows the kind of prolonged consistency required to be successful in this tournament.
The onus of winning this all-important match is going to fall on the Somerset batting. Led by Babar Azam, the highest scorer in the T20 Blast 2019, and Tom Banton, the Somerset batting lineup is very strong.
Tom Banton is the most exciting young player to have come out of England in quite some time and could well be pushing on the dorrs for England selection very soon.
With James Hildreth, Tom Abell, and Edward Byrom also in the batting lineup, the Somerset side should back itself to get enough runs to win.
The bowling has been a bit disappointing this season. Jerome Taylor has not been able to provide the early breakthroughs he is known for while the others have been inconsistent as well. Max Waller, Roelof van der Merwe, and Craig Overton are all talented bowlers that need to lift their game for this knockout match.

An AB de Villiers 50 could not save Middlesex from losing the previous game and now it has to hope for something very special from him in this match. Not only does Middlesex have to win this match against Somerset but it also needs to improve its net run-rate by as much as possible.
Thankfully, a strong batting lineup headlined by AB de Villiers gives it a realistic chance of doing so.
Paul Stirling, Dawid Malan, Mohammad Hafeez, Eoin Morgan, and AB de Villiers form an unbelievably strong and experienced batting lineup. We just hope de Villiers is not pushed too far down the order to try and save his wicket rather than giving him the maximum possible chances of playing a match-winning inning.
Toby Roland-Jones is going to leading the Middlesex bowling attack with Nathan Sowter, Mohammad Hafeez, Tom Helm, and Steven Finn for support.
The Middlesex bowling attack is good enough to keep the Somerset bowling in check although picking up some early wickets is going to be critical.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first

Somerset vs Middlesex T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at the Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton on the 30th of August 2019. The weather forecast for Taunton is excellent and we should be able to get an uninterrupted game of cricket.
Taunton is a small ground with inviting boundaries and an extremely flat pitch. Add two of the stronger batting lineups in the competition and you have a recipe for a very high-scoring game. We think 200 may not be safe batting first.
Middlesex is stacked to the gills with international quality in this match, especially in the batting department. We think it should be able to get past Somerset in this crunch match.
Bet on Middlesex to win.
