Ahead of the game, Somerset Pathway Coach & Women and Girls Lead, Kieran Peters said: “It’s difficult to describe the levels of frustration at the moment. Everyone is desperate to play a game of cricket but we haven’t even been able to travel to a venue yet because of the weather. All our games have been called off at least a day before. Hopefully we can get some play on Monday because I’ve had enough of sending emails saying that games have been cancelled. Everyone just wants to get out there and represent Somerset on the field.
“Wales are a good side and we want the girls to be challenged as much as possible. Playing a side like Wales will certainly provide them with that.”
County Championship T20 Finals Day takes place on Sunday May 14th.
Semi-finals will take place at Taunton Vale Sports Club, with the third place play off and final being held at the Cooper Associates County Ground.
