Made hard work of it in the end, but won by three wickets. That result means Somerset have opened up a 31-point gap on them with a game in hand. Essex match will still be huge though - win there and it starts to look almost unassailable.Currently (3pm) 110-0 in pursuit of 217...beginning to look a little handy?
Second consecutive match at the Chelmsford crap hole where batting has been very difficult. Seamers rather than the spinner doing the damage this time.Somerset 90-6. They need to at least make it to 160 to have a chance of avoiding defeat on this pitch. It doesn't look as though the rain will stop play for long enough to force a draw.
Yes, utterly shambolic. A bit of fight today but still don't fancy our chances of setting Warwicks, who have a second string attack, many more than 200Another wretched batting “performance” against Warwicks today RP.
