Welcome to our SOM vs SUS Dream11 team prediction for second semifinal match of Vitality T20 blast tournament at Edgbaston. The second semifinal features table toppers Somerset and third-placed Sussex, two teams who boast of strong bowling lineup. The last time these two teams met, Somerset had the better of Sussex in a last over finish. Somerset Captain, Lewis Gregory won the toss and elected to bat second. Both Sussex openers were removed for just five runs each but Laura Evans scored a splendid 96 of just 67 balls to setup a competitive total of 169. Somerset slipped to 58 for three but Tom Abell (30) and Roelof van der Merwe (34) ensured that Somerset reached the target with three balls to spare.
SUS have an overall advantage over SOM in head to head matches in T20. The two sides have met on 10 occasions. Somerset have won four matches, Sussex have triumphed on five occasions and one game ended in no result.
Corey Anderson is Somerset’s leading run-scorer with 466 runs from fifteen innings. Jamie Overton’s 24 wickets makes him the second-highest wicket-taker this season. On the other hand Laurie Evans leads Sussex’s scoring chart with 554 runs while Jofra Archer has picked up 18 wickets so far and will be a key player in the fixture.
The pitch at Edgbaston is a belter and we can expect a high scoring game with some support for the spinners and pacers have to use change of pace to contain the batsmen.
