Two crushing wins for Somerset who have a great chance now to get a Q/F. Was unable to make the County Ground scene for the Kent thrashing due to a trip to London for Spurs v Villa.
Did go to the Ageas to see the Hampshire game which somehow avoided the rain. Banton and Byrom failed for a change but Babar hit a magnificent unbeaten century. “Hit” is not really the right word as his timing is his strong suit. Caressing a ball in the slot off Abbott over cover for 6 was supreme. Tom Abell scored heavily and quickly too and the 200+ was well over par. The inept, misfiring Hampshire batsmen never had a chance and they would probably have been bowled out for less than 100 before the rain wiped out the last 8 overs to spare further humiliation.
