Hello and Welcome to our preview for Somerset versus Sussex match. We are covering SOM vs SUS Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for Royal London ODI Cup. The match is to be played at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.
The Royal London Cup has just begun and we are just in the initial stages. Somerset played their last match at this same ground against Glamorgan on 20th May. They managed to pile on a mammoth score of 372/7 while batting first on the back of Hildreth’s magnificent 159(125). Somerset then got Glamorgan out for 289 to register a win.
Sussex lost their last match against Hampshire in a thrillingly close-fought encounter. Sussex batted first and fell like imbalanced blocks after a good start. Opener Luke Wright scored a half-century and number three Harry Finch scored a ton but no one else supported them. The bowling almost defended 250 but a late surge from Hampshire denied them.
