SOM vs ESS Dream11 Prediction
We are all set for the finals of the Bob Willis Trophy 2020 as Somerset takes on Essex up next. Somerset finished at the top of the Central Group and have won three games, while also being involved in a ‘no-result’ from their last four games. Their most recent win was a mammoth win as Somerset registered a 289 runs win over Glamorgan. Meanwhile, Essex also followed a similar patter and finished at the top of the South Group with three wins and a ‘no-result.’ Their last game was a tight win as Essex narrowly manage to register a win by two wickets in hand. Nevertheless, we can expect an exciting affair between the two sides and here is the Dream 11 Prediction for the fixture ahead.
