At the Business of Cricket event at Old Trafford, Somerset received an award (jointly with Hampshire) for the wickets at Taunton.

Yes, yes, all right, all right.............................it was for the one-day pitches!

Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not face any England ban. Fines deemed sufficient.
The original fines and match bans seem to stand but the bans have either been served or are suspended. Nasser Hussain thinks the ECB have got this right in the circumstances where they had limited options. I sense he would have preferred stronger punishments to send out the right message but no doubt m’ learned friends would then be on the scene. I think Nasser has got this right. Both Stokes and Hales can count themselves lucky.

"Where Are They Now" features on the Somerset CCC website: bowlers Steffan Jones and the pacy, though somewhat wayward, Andre van Troost.

My memories of P S Steffan Jones are entirely of his latter years. Mainly not selected and standing on the balcony with a pint of beer in his hand and not looking too fit. One of my friends saw him changing in the gym and confirmed the fitness issues :$

Good to see him making what looks like a good career post playing cricket mind.
