SOM vs NOR Dream11 Prediction
Somerset are all set to face Northamptonshire in their next game of the Central Group in the ongoing Vitality T20 Blast on Friday night. The race to the knockouts in the central group would go down to the wire as 4 teams have a realistic chance to make it to the next stage of the competition. Northamptonshire have had a decent tournament so far as they have managed 4 wins and 3 losses in 8 games. Somerset on the other hand, have blown hot and cold this season. They have managed 3 wins and 4 losses off their 8 matches. It is a must-win game for them as a loss would mean almost curtains for them in the competition. However, a win here would strongly put them in the race to make it to the quarterfinals. Let's take a look at the SOM vs NOR Dream 11 Prediction for this interesting affair.
