SOMERSET'S start to the 2023 Vitality Blast campaign could not have gone any better. 

Three wins in three games, highlighting the strength of the Somerset squad when it comes to T20 cricket.

Strong performances from nearly all the players involved have spearheaded them to top of the Southern Group table.

New signing Tom Kohler-Cadmore has been strong in the three games so far.

He said after scoring 72 runs last week: "The lads have been awesome. 

"We made it a tad tight at the end (against Sussex) and the other lads said it was tough to win here but it's two wins from two and that gives us some momentum.

"I'd like to have been at the end, when I score some runs I like to be the one who wins it for the team. It was my night tonight but I'm sure other lads will stand up in other games."

Somerset Head Coach, Jason Kerr said: “We’ve got a phenomenal bowling attack and they were able to exploit the conditions on Wednesday night.

"To see Bants in the runs as well was really positive for us moving forward. It was a great way to start the campaign, but we won’t be getting carried away.

“The South Group is strong this year and it’s a challenge that we are all looking forward to, especially after how they guys performed against Hampshire.”

Somerset know the home crowd in Taunton plays a huge part in their success.

The fans in Taunton are loud and proud, and they love their T20 cricket.

Bowler Craig Overton thinks the crowd could help Somerset get to finals day once again.

“We are hopeful that this could be our year in the Blast. We have added an international bowler in Matt Henry and strengthened our batting as well, so perhaps we can go one better than reaching Finals Day.

“The crowd here are always our twelfth man and there is nothing better than winning in front of them on a sunny evening at Taunton.”

Somerset continue their blast campaign tomorrow night (May 30) away from home against Kent.
