Somerset will take on Derbyshire in the 4th Quarter-Final of the T20 Blast 2022 on Saturday. Somerset are in top-notch form having won their previous 3 matches. Win over Surrey in their final league game by 47 runs is the best of them all. Will Smeed’s swashbuckling 98 runs and skipper Tom Abell’s quick-fire 70 runs helped them to set a target of 219 runs and later Craig Overton’s 4 fer-handed a thumping win in the end. Overall, with 10 wins and 4 losses they finished 2nd in the South Group standings with 20 points. Playing on their home turf will be an added advantage for them.
Derbyshire on the other hand, too had a great journey so far in this tournament having finished 3rd in the North Group standings with 18 points. They ended their league stages with consecutive wins over Durham and Lancashire by 5 wickets and 5 runs respectively. Shan Masood has been remarkable with the bat having struck close to 550 runs and pacer George Scrimshaw played a significant role in the team’s success, picking up 21 wickets. Leus du Plooy will captain the side in this significant game in place of Shan Masood as the latter is away on National duty.
