I see that, for the Hundred, Somerset and Gloucs will be affiliated to the Cardiff-based "Welsh Fire". Apparently research indicates that supporters in Somerset and the South-west are showing little interest. Not altogether a surprise.

Zummerzet storm to a huge 313 run victory.

All over by lunchtime - rather glad I decided not to go now! :D

PS: Just need Notts last two wickets to hold off Essex for two whole sessions. #notholdingmybreath
Great win with maximum points to leave Cidermen 45 points clear of Hants in third place. Essex meanwhile crushed Notts and are now 15 points behind in second place.
Could go down to the wire with the last match of the season being Somerset v Essex at Taunton, a potential winner takes all encounter ?

Not sure if someone went over the Derby pitch with the heavy roller, but after 557/6 declared and 520, Derbyshire are now 44/4 in their second innings!

Now that would be a WONDERFUL climax for the, much maligned, REAL county championship - except that, since it wouldn't involve Middlesux and Sorrey the mainstream broadsheet media (and the Beeb) will almost certainly invoke it as justification for the abolition of nationwide multi-day cricket.

Only hope is that, if Essex is involved, Sky might still take an interest.
