Somerset will take on Glamorgan in the 47th match of the T20 Blast on Saturday.
Somerset have won just one of their four T20 Blast games and currently find themselves sixth in the South Group table at the time of writing. They registered their first win in the tournament, after beating Kent by 47 runs in their last outing. Batting first, Somerset posted 204 runs on the board before restricting Kent to just 157. They will be keen to maintain their winning momentum when they face Glamorgan.
Glamorgan have also won just one in four and currently occupy the penultimate position in the South Group standings. They will head into Saturday's T20 Blast fixture on the back of a 40-run loss to Kent. Glamorgan, who are on a two-game losing streak, will be desperate to return to winning ways at the earliest.
The two sides have met each other four times over the last two years, with Somerset emerging victorious on all occasions.
