Somerset vs Worcestershire 1st Quarterfinal Match Preview | Who Will Win Today Match

Worcester, May 10, Friday at 03:30 PM IST

Powered by James Hildreth’s 93 of 89 deliveries, Somerset registered 5 wickets win over bottom-placed Surrey to finish off third in the South Group and also managed a quarter-final spot in the tournament. They will now square off against Worcestershire at New Road, Worcester on May 10, Friday in the first Qualifier with an eye on the semi-final spot.

Riding on Dean Elgar’s 64 of 77 balls and forties from Jamie Smith and Ben Foakes, Surrey posted a good total of 290-9 in the first innings. Coming to chase, Somerset were reduced to 41-2 in the ninth over when Tom Banton (53) and James Hildreth (93) took the charge and resurrected the innings. The unbeaten 57 from George Bartlett and Lewis Gregory’s 36 not out, down the order, helped the side finish the chase in 45.4 overs. Owing to the better run rate, Somerset finished third ahead of Gloucestershire -who finished fourth despite the same number of wins and defeats in eight outings.

Playing in home conditions, Worcestershire will be looking to continue the momentum with an eye on a semi-final spot. They are on a three-match winning streak and a win over Somerset will guarantee them a spot against Nottinghamshire in the first semi-final.

The clash will begin at 03:30 PM IST at noon.
