The venue has always helped the bowlers. There is a lot of bounce and movement off the surface for the fast bowlers and spinners also enjoy bowling here as the large dimensions of the ground make it tough for the batsmen to hit boundaries. Batsmen who spend their time on this wicket have done well.

T20 Blast 2020: Somerset vs Glamorgan – Fantasy Tips
Without any further considerations, the first pick has to be Babar Azam, who is in exceptional form with the bat. Alongside him, Davies and Abell have got the goods to make things happen. With Hildreth staying away, Somerset will look for Haynes and Libby to chip in.
They have been struggling with their batting department. However, in the last couple of games Irish batsman Balbirnie is doing his job while Cooke has been exceptional throughout the tournament. The addition of David Lloyd might boost their energies.
