  • Head to head in last 4 completed games, Gloucestershire leads 3-1.
  • Jerome Taylor – 12 wickets in 9 games at the 2019 T20 Blast.
  • Babar Azam – 434 runs in 9 games in the tournament.


Having played over 150 international games for West Indies, Jerome Taylor is bringing in all his experience for Somerset, picking up 12 wickets and going wicketless in just a single game. However, almost everyone is contributing in the bowling department with Roelof van der Merwe and Craig Overton also picking up 11 wickets each. If budgets allow, pick all three.

After a fantastic 2019 World Cup for Pakistan, Babar Azam has now kicked the form on in this tournament, currently the highest scorer in the tournament with 3 fifties, a century and a best of 102*. He has enjoyed batting in England since his arrival even before the World Cup. Captain Tom Abell has a lowest score of 41 in his last 4 innings and he’s someone you shouldn’t miss too.


All-rounder Benny Howell has to be among your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks as he has 9 wickets and 100+ runs in just 7 games so far this season. He brings in a lot of experience to the fray and not picking him would be a sin. The leading wicket-taker for Gloucestershire so far is David Payne – 11 wickets in 9 games.

With the bat, Ryan Higgins has accumulated 196 runs in 9 games so far this year and is often thrown the ball as well, picking up 3 wickets. All-rounders are key in T20 cricket and I can’t leave him out. Youngster James Bracey is their highest run getter so far with 200 runs in 9 games.
