Somerset managed to get its first win of the T20 Blast 2020 season and will now take on Worcestershire to try and continue to the momentum. Worcestershire Rapids are still winless after three scheduled matches. The only point that they have is because of a rained-out match. A poor start could quickly translate into a season from which there is no recovering because of the changed Blast format. Both teams are going to be taking this match very seriously and know that losing could be very costly in the long run.
Worcestershire vs Somerset T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 3rd of September 2020.
Twice in this tournament, Worcestershire has been let down by its bowling, and twice its batting has not been able to bail it out. A loss by 22 runs is a big one and more so when you score 175 runs yourself. Patrick Brown was one of the breakout stars of the T20 Blast but has been having a tough time this time around.
His four overs went for 57 runs as he struggled for any kind of control over the batsmen.
Daryl Mitchell, Dillon Pennington, and Ed Barnard form the rest of the bowling attack that should be able to perform better than it has so far. It would be unwise to count out this bowling attack after just two matches, though. They have a proven record of delivering in the past and just need to get some form behind them.
Perhaps moving away from the high-scoring Worcester venue would be something they enjoy.
The batting is led by Hamish Rutherford, Riki Wessels, and Jack Haynes in the top-order. They all got starts in the previous match but were unable to convert that into something more significant. Without Moeen Ali to provide the power, the role of Brett D’Oliviera and Ross Whiteley becomes very important.
The batting is strong and will test the Somerset bowling for sure.

Tom Abell is one of the highest-rated young batsmen in the country and he showed just why in the previous match against Glamorgan. Abell smashed 74 from just 45 balls and remained not-out till the end. It was not an inning of ultra aggression either. He just had the time to play normally and ket hitting the gaps.
James Hildreth spent some time in the middle that will pay dividends down the road as well.
Steve Davies and George Bartlett opened the batting for Somerset in that match.
We like the Somerset batting lineup. It has some decent amount of depth and a number of potential match-winners. It is not too much stronger than what Worcestershire has, though, and so the senior players must continue to perform well.
We think a promotion up the order for Roelof van der Merwe may be something that Somerset tries to try and boost the run-rate.
Ben Green picked up four wickets in the previous match and is going to be full of confidence. Craig Overton, Roelof van der Merwe, and Ollie Sale also bowled pretty well. The Somerset bowling lineup was responsible for setting up the win in the previous match and they are certainly capable of doing the same against Worcestershire.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. We don't think there is going to be too much of a disadvantage at losing the toss at this venue, though.

There is a slight chance of rain that has been forecast for match day. Hopefully, the rain will stay away and not cause disruption to the proceedings. The pitch at Edgbaston is good for batting but the large boundaries give the bowlers a chance as well. The spinners, in particular, could use the dimensions of the ground to their advantage.
We think Somerset is the team to back in this contest. It has a well-balanced side and the X factor in its batting thanks to the presence of Tom Abell. Somerset is also come up against Worcestershire at a time when it is low on confidence and without its best player.
Bet on Somerset to win.
