Vitality Blast T20 Predictions & Tips: Hampshire Hawks v Somerset (Saturday, 11:00 BST)
The Vitality Blast T20 comes to a close on Saturday with two semi-finals and the Final at Edgbaston – but who will be crowned champions? The first semi-final sees Hampshire Hawks go up against Somerset. The Hawks booked their place in Finals Day with a thrilling two-run win over Nottinghamshire Outlaws. The Hawks were put into bat, and they went onto post 125-9. Tom Prest led the way with the bat as he hit 44 from 34 balls. It wasn’t the most challenging totals to defend, but they did just that. They bowled out the Outlaws for 123 with two balls remaining. Liam Dawson was the pick of the bowlers with 3-24, while Bradley Wheal and Scott Currie took two wickets apiece. Somerset defeated Lancashire Lightning by seven wickets to book their place at Finals Day. The Lightning were put into bat, and they posted 184 for the loss of nine wickets. Roelof van der Merwe took four wickets, while Marchant de Lange took three of his own. It was a difficult total to chase down, but Somerset did it with ease. An unbeaten 78 from Tom Abell and 47 from Tom Lammonby saw Somerset get home with 1.5 overs to spare. Somerset are my tip in this one. I expect them to get home with Abell being the hero with the most runs. When the Hawks get to bat, they also have quality, and I am backing James Vince to add to the 371 runs he has already scored.
Vitality Blast T20 Predictions & Tips: Kent Spitfires v Sussex Sharks (Saturday, 14:30 BST)
Kent Spitfires and Sussex Sharks will battle it out in the second semi-final on Finals Day at Edgbaston. The Spitfires booked their place at Finals Day with a 21-run success over Birmingham Bears. Kent were put into bat and they hit a competitive 162-7. Jake Lintott top-scored with 41 from 20 balls to rescue their innings. The total was more than enough as they bowled out the Bears for 141. Matt Milnes was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4-24. Sussex claimed a five-wicket success over Yorkshire Vikings to book their spot at Edgbaston. Yorkshire opted to bat first, and they posted a decent 177 for the loss of seven wickets. Tymal Mills – who was a success in The Hundred – continued his fine form with three wickets. That was a tough total to chase down, but Somerset managed to do that with two balls to spare. Captain Luke Wright was the hero as he hit six fours and one maximum as he scored 54 runs from 39 balls. This should be an entertaining contest. I am backing Somerset to get the win. With the likes of Philip Salt, Wright and Ravi Bopara in their batting line-up, they have plenty of firepower. I am backing Wright to lead by example and score the most runs for his team. When the Spitfires get to the crease, I fancy Daniel Bell-Drummond to swing for the fences and add to the 392 runs he has already scored this season.
