HAM vs SOM Tips, Stats & Team for Today Match Prediction
Match: HAM vs SOM T20 Blast Semi Final Prediction
Time: 18 September, 03:30 PM (IST)
Venue: Edgbaston Cricket Ground – Edgbaston, England
- Captain James Vince is Hampshire Hawks leading run scorer in the 2021 T20 Blast and is a good bet to be their highest run scorer in this semi-final. Scott Currie has 17 wickets in the tournament and is our tip for Hampshire’s top wicket taker in this game.
- Tom Banton hit an unbeaten century for Somerset earlier in the competition and is well worth backing as their highest run scorer against Hampshire Hawks. Marchant de Lange had a strong Men’s Hundred and already has 17 wickets for Somerset in the 2021 T20 Blast. We recommend de Lange to be their top wicket taker in this knockout match.
- We expect James Vince and Tom Banton to be the crucial wickets on either side. Vince has had an incredible season and is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.
Live Streaming: The match can be watched live on Sky Cricket in the UK. Star Sports will show live coverage in India.
Weather & Pitch Report:
There were plenty of high scores at Edgbaston in the group stage. We expect any total approaching 200 to be very hard to chase in the semi-final.
Given the choice, both teams would prefer to field first, however Hampshire Hawks qualified for Finals Day by batting first. We expect the captains to insert the opposition if they win the toss.

HAM Team News:
- It has not been a simple journey to Finals Days for Hampshire Hawks who had to play two games on one day to complete their group stage fixtures. James Vince, D’arcy Short and Joe Weatherley have all hit over 300 runs in the 2021 T20 Blast.
SOM Team News:
- The 2005 winners have a very strong group of white ball players and are well led by all-rounder Lewis Gregory. Craig Overton may be available for the XI but at this stage is doubtful with a side strain. The young opening batting partnership are great to watch in tandem.
