Somerset will host Middlesex in an English County Championship Group 2 match at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton on Thursday.

Somerset are currently placed third in the English County Championship Group 2 points table with two wins and a loss from three matches. They will head into the fixture on the back of a nine-wicket victory over Leicestershire. The heroics of skipper Tom Abell, who smashed 123 runs in two innings, and Craig Overton, who scalped a total of eight wickets in the last match, paved the way for Somerset to seal the deal.

Middlesex, on the other hand, are one place behind the hosts with a win and two losses from their three matches. They registered a massive 10-wicket victory over Surrey in their previous game under the leadership of new skipper Peter Handscomb. Middlesex's bowling attack was pretty dominant in the last match. Toby Roland-Jones and Ethan Bamber, their standout performers from the previous game, have been rested for the upcoming English County Championship fixture.

The last time the two sides met earlier this month at the Lord’s in the season opener, Somerset defeated Middlesex by four wickets. Somerset will start as favorites to win the upcoming English County Championship game on their home turf.
