VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Ahead of the match, Somerset Captain, Sophie Luff said: “After our two victories over Wales on Monday we’ve certainly got some momentum. Having said that, we know that nothing is guaranteed in this game and it’s all about turning up and performing on the day in knockout cricket. Hopefully, we can turn up on Sunday and put in another good performance.
“Wales have got a number of Western Storm players in their squad as well as some young up and coming talent. We’re quite evenly matched and they’ll be looking to get one over on us after last week, plus anything can happen in T20 cricket.
“We’re desperate to get to the final and then we’ll be looking to beat either Birmingham Bears or Gloucestershire. Any time I put on a Somerset shirt I’m desperate to win and do a job for my county. If we can come away with some silverware on Sunday that would be the icing on the cake and it would be just reward for the hard work that everyone in the group has put in.”Back to News
