Somerset and Glamorgan of South group would come head to head in the 2nd fixture of Vitality T20 Blast at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on Thursday.
Talking about the last season, Somerset displayed an outstanding performance with both bat and ball. With 10 wins in 14 games, Somerset was sitting at the peak of the South table. Unfortunately, Somerset couldn’t enter the qualification zone due to just one win and even this season they would be hoping to showcase the same temperament and consistency for much better results.
Meanwhile, Glamorgan would have been working regressively to improve their performance this season as they were a bit disappointing last season. They finished 6th at the south points table with seven wins in 14 matches.
The match is scheduled to begin at 11:00 PM IST.
