It's time for third quarter-final in the England T20 League as Somerset get set to lock horns with Lancashire in Taunton on Thursday. It is going to be a tricky contest since both the sides will be without some of their star players. While Craig Overton and Devon Conway will be absent for Somerset, Lancashire will be without the services of Finn Allen. Despite the absentees, there are some big names in both camps which guarantees a thrilling T20 match, with a place in semis up for grabs.
Tom Banton and Dane Vilas would be the wicketkeeping batsmen to watch out for in the contest and should definitely be a part of your fantasy side. Among the batsmen, the onus will be on Keaton Jennings and Will Smeed to do the bulk of the scoring for their respective sides and they could be in for a big knock in this quarter-final match.
There will be some star all-rounders on display in form of Liam Livingstone, Lewis Gregory and Steven Croft who could be the game-changers with their valuable contributions with both bat and ball. Tom Lammonby comes into the contest on the back of a heroic 90-run knock in previous contest and would also be raring to go. Marchant de Lange and Luke Wood could be the X-Factor in the bowling department and could get some crucial points for your fantasy side.
