About the Match
Somerset and Glamorgan are engaged in this match to be played at County Ground, Taunton on 6th June; Glamorgan has 4 points from 3 matches and Somerset 2 points from 3 matches, and both are clashing to improve their standing in the points table of the south division. The tournament has just kicked off, and the teams are warming up to face formidable challenges ahead. Weather seems to be hindering the matches, reducing them to curtailed overs; thereby the full potential of the teams has not been realized so far.
Trescothick, who has the experience of international matches, and should have been guiding the team with more vigor, is not in good form, with little contribution to the team; Somerset has lost 2 of the 3 matches played so far. After setting a target of 156 losing 8 wickets, they won the match against Gloucestershire very comfortably, after bowling out the opponent in 18.4 overs. Keiswetter is in good knick opening the innings, he is able to hold one end rotating the strike. His 55 off 48 was a match winning effort, making good partnerships; Peterson, Gregory and Hildreth have the capability to contain the attack. Playing against Kent, they could not chase successfully, a stiff target of 164, even with 5 wickets in hand. This only indicates that they lack depth in the batting line-up and are not consistent in their performances. Nannes has a good line and length, adequately supported by Trego and Gregory. The players need to improve their team work and play for the cause of the team to achieve success.
Seems to be a more balanced team, with Wagg and Hogan opening the attack; they have good support bowlers in Allenby, Sammy and Cook who have the teeth to unsettle the opponent. Once they settle down, they have learnt the art of making partnerships to a growing challenge ahead; they are good in chasing and have no problem even if they have to set a target. Rudolph and Allenby are reliable and dependable openers, and are consistent in their role; Cosker has effective methods to handle strong bowling attack and his contribution of 65 off 31 balls mattered in the success of the team against Somerset. The top order has the answer for the bowling attack and they have been managing the affairs with meticulous planning, leading to success of the team. They are very professional in their approach enjoying a very solid opening pair with reliable batsmen down the order. They have treated opposing teams with respect to their talent and at the same time learnt how to adapt to the schedule and win matches.
Somerset seems to be complacent in their approach thereby losing match after match; they need to improve their skills and play like a team marshalling their resources meaningfully. While the contest could turn in anybody’s favor at any time, we expect a Glamorgan win in this match.
