Somerset won the toss and went straight to bowl first. They had faith that they are worthy to take down Surrey easily at their home ground. All their batsmen did exponentially better on yesterdays match. It is their 2nd win in the tournament. On the other hand, Surrey needs to do a lot better as they have a single win till now so far.
