Vitality Blast, 2018′
Somerset vs Sussex Sharks’, 2nd Semi-Final
As the caravan of the 2018 Vitality Blast moves to the Finals day, Somerset will take on Sussex Sharks in the second semi-final on Saturday.
Venue:- Edgbaston Cricket Ground, Birmingham
Match Timings:- Saturday, September 15, 2018, 07:00 PM IST
The match between Somerset and Sussex will be a shootout between arguably the two best all-round bowling attacks in the tournament.
Sussex Sharks’, who won their last three South Group games to qualify for the finals day boast of a formidable attack in Archer, Mills and Chris Jordan despite missing the services of Afghan sensation Rashid Khan. They’ll be up against an equally potent attack of Jerome Taylor, Lewis Gregory and Max Waller.
While the bowling attack of both sides is well matched, Somerset has a slight edge in the batting department. In James Hildreth, Peter Trego, Steven Davies and all-rounder Corey Anderson, Somerset boast of a formidable batting line-up with them scoring more than 200 on four different occasions in the group stage as compared to Susse, Sharks’ who scored the second least runs of all sides in the South Group.
