Somerset v South Australian Redbacks Champions League T20 2011 Live Score and Match Highlights here
The likes of Callum Ferguson and Daniel Christian had a great time with the bat the other day against the Kolkata Knight Riders which won the game for South Australia. Daniel Christian was especially good as he paced his knock brilliantly and took the game to the opposition from the very outfit.
One thing that looks really puzzling though is the fact that the Redbacks are yet to play Shaun Tait in this tournament. The speedster has some invaluable IPL experience on these pitches that he could use to the teams advantage and I really fail to understand why he has not played so far.
As we saw the other day in the game between the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Bangalore pitch is one hell of a pitch for the batsmen. It has got good bounce and carry and the ball comes on to the bat nicely. 170+ is a given provided the batsmen in both the teams play sensibly.
Men To Watch
Somerset – Roelof van der Merwe is in cloud nine at the moment. He is potent at the top of the order and bowls some useful left armers. He is our man to watch for Somerset.
South Australian Redbacks – Daniel Christian is our man to watch for the Redbacks. He can swing the momentum of a game at any point of time with his explosive batting as well as his bowling.
