Somerset entertained plenty last year but still didn’t make it past the group stage and they will be hoping to improve in the 2020 T20 Blast.

Last year’s finish: 6th in the South Group

Tournament history: After winning the tournament in 2005, Somerset endured the cruel fate of finishing runners-up on three consecutive occasions from 2009 to 2011. Despite the pyrotechnics of Babar Azam and Tom Banton last year, they missed out on a place in the quarter-finals last year.

Key player: Tom Abell. The 26-year-old will enter the competition with two first-class centuries banked during the Bob Willis Trophy, and he showed his chops as a T20 hard-hitter last year, racking up an unbeaten 101 from 47 balls against Middlesex.
