MID vs SOM Dream11 Prediction: The 4th match of the County Championship 2021 will be played between Middlesex and Somerset at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London on Thursday, April 8, 2021.
MID vs SOM Match Preview
An all-new season of the prestigious County cricket is all set to commence with all the 18 counties in readiness to take the field from 8th April.
Each side will play the others in their pool home and away in a total of 10 matches. The top two sides from each group will then advance to Division One, with the third and fourth-placed teams moving into Division Two and the fifth and sixth-placed teams going into Division Three.
Each county will then play a further four matches. They will not play the side they have already faced twice in the pool stage for the third time. Instead, the points accrued from those matches will be carried over. The side who tops Division One will be crowned County Champions. They will then play the side who finishes second in a five-day final in the last week of September, with the winners of that game claiming the Bob Willis Trophy.
Meanwhile, Round one of the English Test County Championship 2021 features a marquee clash between heavyweights Middlesex and Somerset at Lord’s on Thursday.
