Head to Head


Somerset have won three of their last five matches against Hamshire. This season they have each won once, with Hampshire winning the last match by 14 runs towards the end of June 2022.

Hampshire Form


Hampshire finished fourth in the South Group with nine wins and five defeats in their 14 matches. They then thrashed the Birmingham Bears in the quarter final to advance to finals day.

Batting first, Ben McDermott smashed 61 off 36 balls to get Hampshire to a superb total of 186 runs. Joe Weatherley added 47 runs.

James Fuller finished the job for Hampshire, taking 4-17 in four overs. Nathan Ellis took 3-4 in under two overs as the Bears were all out for 82 runs.

Hampshire Team News


Hampshire will have to be on top of their game, particularly in the bowling department. Their opposition have some in-form players that can tear any attack apart.

Somerset Form


Somerset finished second in the South Group with 10 wins and four defeats in 14 games. They were just one point off Surrey at the top.

In the quarter-final Somerset put in of the great batting displays. All season Rilee Rossouw has been scoring big and he continued, hitting 93 off 36 balls in a quite ridiculous innings. Tom Banton added 73 runs in a huge total of 265 runs.

Derbyshire hardly had a chance to chase such a big score. It would have broken all kinds of records but they were all out for a paltry 74 runs. Peter Siddle and Ben Green took three wickets each.

Somerset Team News


Somerset have an in-form batting lineup. They will likely stick with the same side.
