THE Lord’s final must wait for now, as Somerset switch their attention back from the Bob Willis Trophy to the Vitality Blast, with two of their three T20 matches this week taking place at the Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.

They host Worcestershire Rapids tonight (Friday, 6.30pm), then Gloucestershire on Sunday (2pm), ahead of a trip to take on Glamorgan on Wednesday (6.30pm).

Somerset have two wins, two defeats and one no result from their five matches so far, leaving them third in the Central Group standings - behind Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire, and level on points with Birmingham Bears.

Seamer Josh Davey remains confident that Somerset will be able to do enough to make it through to the quarter-finals of the competition.

He told the County Gazette: “We try to win every game we play, of course, but home advantage is massive for us.

“I think we need to win three of our next five games to progress.”

Davey, 30, was speaking shortly after claiming his 100th First Class wicket in this week's win at Worcestershire (which sent Somerset into the Bob Willis final), and said: “It’s always nice to get those milestones.

“I set myself personal goals ahead of each season, and I wanted to get there [to 100 First Class wickets] this season, so it was nice to achieve that.”

Davey has worked well in tandem with Craig Overton this season, causing opposition batsmen all kinds of problems at the start of - and throughout - their innings.

“We build good pressure together, and we’re quite economical bowlers, so that puts more pressure on the batsmen,” Davey added.

“We’re different in what we do with the ball, and we complement each other well.”

Davey and Overton are part of a seam bowling unit that is performing as well as any in county cricket at the moment, with Jack Brooks and Lewis Gregory - plus Tom Abell and Tom Lammonby - offering high quality options.

“We’re always competitive between ourselves,” said Davey.

“Lewis is keen to get hold of the new ball, and there’s competition between the bowlers to get the ball and keep hold of it.

“We know that a bad spell or a bad game could see us lose those opportunities, or even our place in the team.

“The key to having a good bowling attack is having that strength in depth, as it drives up everyone’s standards.”
