Hunkered down
It was indeed a lovely day - Somerset actually reaching 300.
I was there for Ball one right to the last Ball - a good days cricket and excellent weather

Minuses - Tom Lammonby poor shot to get out first ball off the change bowler and a crazy run out of Tom Abell

Pluses - Lewis Goldsworthy looks a useful prospect getting his maiden first class 50 (he is very tiny though) and the other Lewis (Gregory) really is a good bat never looked in trouble

Observation - Jamie Overton is sharp but bowls far too short the last two overs he bowled to Peter Siddle - Siddle only had to play at one :rolleyes:

Still think Surrey will win it but Somerset have made a fist of it.

Apologies Al I never managed to get to Rory's flowing locks however shout of the day from the crowd when Rory chased one down and prevented a Boundary
'She Fielded That One Well'

And as for England - Magnificent - Bairstow was brutal
Thanks for that. Glad Rory got a bit of stick.

As regards Goldsworthy, did you get an opinion from Pate on his lack of height ? :ROFLMAO:

As you say, Somerset at least have put up a fight. Another 100 runs needed to set Sorry a target of sorts though. Seems unlikely unless Gregory does a Bairstow.

Have to admit to following events at Trent Bridge in priority. Thought we might be fooked at 90 odd for 4 with that long tail. Jonny Bairstow’s innings was really quite out of this world. Ben Stokes played his part too. 👏👏👏
