Somerset captain Alfonso Thomas won the toss and decided to bat first in a must-win match against Warriors at Bengaluru.
With a semifinal spot at stake, South Africa's Warriors and England's Somerset will clash in a make-or-break Champions League Twenty20 cricket match.
After three matches, Warriors are leading the table with four points while Somerset have three.
The winner of today’s contest will emerge as the leader of group, provided South Australia Redbacks lose to Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second encounter of the day.
Led by Johan Botha, the Warriors are just a win away from sealing their semis berth after two wins and one defeat while Somerset, after having lost poorly to RCB on Monday, will have to play to their strength to beat their robust opponents
