Taunton, August 03 at 09:00 PM IST

Second-placed Somerset would be eyeing top position when they meet struggling Essex Eagles at the County Ground on Friday.

Somerset had a mixed bag of results at the start of the competition but have picked momentum of late. They are only a point adrift of the table-toppers Gloucestershire, although they have played a game more.

On the other hand, Essex Eagles are down and out with only a single win to show after six rounds. They would be looking for a turnaround and make a comeback in the competition. In their last Vitality Blast challenge, they played a tie against Hampshire.

Pitch conditions: It could be a high-scoring affair as the Cooper Associates County Ground has not assisted bowlers to any extent in the recent competitive games.

Last T20 result at the venue: Somerset 197/7 beat Hampshire 181/9 – August 01, Vitality Blast 2018

Form Guide (last five, recent last):

Somerset – W W L W W

Essex – W L L NR T

(W: Win, L: Loss, T: Tie, NR: No result)
