SOM vs SUR Dream11 Team Prediction| Somerset vs Surrey English T20 Blast | Match Preview

The two South Group sides will lock horns once again this time in the English T20 Blast. Somerset, who are at present right above the last team in the table will look to shed their past bad games in return for a win. They have won only one game in their 4 outings. Surrey is not doing that great either, winning only one out of their 5 games perched at number 6 in the South group table
