Somerset did well to reach thus far as they finished 2nd in league phase of the South Group. They had 20 points from 14 games. They will now look to play positive cricket to be able to make it to the Finals Day.
The Tom Abell led side will require their batters to be at their very best to put a competitive total on board as they have done in games before. While bowling wise they will aim to pick the ten wickets.
On the other hand, Derbyshire Falcons did well to qualify for the knockouts as they finished 3rd in the league phase of the North Group. They finished with 18 points from 14 games.
The Shan Masood led side need to score big to put pressure on the opponent in the quarter-final and they have the batting to. Bowling wise they will require a combined effort from a good bowling unit as they are.
For the wicket, the bowlers will get help but the batsman can too score.

There are no fresh injury concerns for both sides at the moment.
Somerset XI : Smeed, Banton (WK), Rossouw, Abell (C), Lammonby, Gregory, B. Green, R. van der Merwe, C. Overton, Davey, Siddle.

I expect this to be a close game as both teams will give their all. May the best team on the day which commits less mistakes win the game.
