Sussex and Somerset will face off in the T20 Blast 2023 South Group match at the County Ground, Hove on Friday, May 26. The exciting contest will commence at 11:30 pm IST, promising an evening of thrilling cricket action.

With their formidable pace attack, Somerset have emerged as the favored team for the upcoming match. In their previous encounter against Hampshire, Craig Overton and Ben Green impressed with three wickets each, supported by Matt Henry’s two wickets, to restrict the opposition to a mere 74 runs.

Somerset’s batting lineup, featuring Tom Banton, Will Smeed, Tom Abell, Lewis Gregory, and Tom Lammonby, holds great potential. Banton made an impactful start to the T20 Blast 2023 campaign, smashing 40 runs off 24 balls.

On the other hand, Sussex will heavily rely on the contributions of Shadab Khan and captain Ravi Bopara to lead their team. Having faced challenges in the previous edition, Sussex lacks prominent star players in their lineup.

Jofra Archer’s absence due to injury for the entire summer, along with Ollie Robinson’s potential unavailability, further adds to their team’s challenges.
