I wonder if that is the first time someone has scored a fifty in boundaries and made a century before lunch after being put into bat.

Pretty impressive to be 145/1 and fail to get batting point. Oooopps

Somerset’s commitment to comedy is high.

A nod to Sussex as well though. I know they are Div 2 but from 92-0 to 145 all out is very Somerset.

Somerset much less comedic than Yorkshire, at least they got to 3 figures.

Textbook Somerset today. We are showing Yorkshire what proper crap batting looks like.

Could be bubbling up into a cracking day if the weather holds.

Going back to the discussion of Kolpaks etc., interesting to note that Worcs and Notts have 20 English qualified players playing the current fixture-the overseas players, Travis Head and Ross Taylor, being the exceptions.

Excellent!

Forecast has changed for tomorrow and looks like there will be a result at Taunton. Please bowl properly Somerset!

Pretty sure 20 English qualified in Somerset vs Yorkshire as well. Tim g has English mother and do the Scots qualify for us in the same way as the Irish?

I am on a train to Bristol and how I wish I could stay on it for one more stop to Taunton. Sadly I have to give a presentation today so I can't. Gutted. Weather looks good for bowling.

Wins for Somerset and Notts then, no one else looks likely to salvage anything more from the rain than a draw.

Yorkshire's loss at Taunton provides us with interesting talking points. Is Renshaw better than the disgraced Bancroft? Will Pujara be very low on confidence by the time India arrive? He didn't exactly perform well for Notts last summer. Was Gary Ballance's high score of 80 odd against Notts last week a fluke?

Notts proved for the second time this summer that two day Championship cricket isn't a bad idea. Well, if you have a half decent seam attack it's not. They'll be wishing for a damp summer.

Alastair Cook is on 54* at tea. Will he have the chance to get a ton or will the teams shake on a draw by close of play or will he get out meaning that Ali and I engage in a competition to update a certain thread?

Very valuable victories, with Somerset now having already recorded half as many wins as they did all last season. As Middx learned last year, the 14 game Championship means teams can't afford to faff about in the opening burst of rounds, big points on the board being needed as soon as possible.

Which is something Worcs are sadly lacking. Three losses out of three with just a solitary batting point. I'd hoped they'd be more robust this time around but it's already beginning to look worryingly like 2009.

We didn't get our second win until September last season! Our seam attack is as good as anyone with a green pitch. Sadly two of them are now broken. We need the sun to come out so we can get the spin twins operating (who have not taken a wicket yet)

Hard to score 400 runs in 70.5 overs to maximise your batting bonus points.

We had to score at over 4 an over to get the 3 points we got for reaching 300.

Still that's 70.5 more overs than we got in at Yorks.

That is effing unlucky. We got very lucky with the weather. It is an irritating quirk of cricket that the title can be decided by the weather.

I quite like the unfairness that the weather can provide. 'Cricket reflecting life' and all that. And that's from a Kent fan whose team suffered relegation partly due to rain interference in 2008.

Yep, including the especially rare 'too much sunshine' weather which nearly scuppered us at OT in 2010.
