Outplayed by Middlesex in all parts of the game. Our bowling not tight enough, fielding too loose, and we lost some wickets to casual batting as well as some great Middlesex fielding.
Some changes to be made for remaining games. Middlesex made good use of slow bowlers, so let's bring in Waller, that's why IPL wanted him !

Enjoyable day out at Taunton yesterday, first visit since early 80s. Clearly some changes but certainly retains the charm of a traditional county cricket ground. Both teams built partnerships but then lost wickets before they could really get going but Somerset had match winners in a composed Hildreth performance and a blitz from Gregory. What looked to be a tricky target was eventually reached with ease to earn Somerset a place in the knock out phase. Thanks GWR for delaying my train long enough to see the finish !

Blimey, St Albans to Taunton return for a 50 overs game! Worcester tomorrow?

I'd like to say see you at Lord's for the final but I'll be surprised if we beat Lanky, despite the Lawman's transformation of our one day side. Too many players missing.

1pm start suited. 40 min train delay on return allowed me to see 7.45pm finish.
You guys have momentum. All over Somerset and saw them see off Gloucester. More than capable with your batsmen in form.
One good thing for us is being underdogs. We seem intent on batting long and fiddling with Van de Merwe and Azhar as spinners rather than specials like Sowter, and Batty who tied us down at Taunton.

Enjoyed it a lot too. Ideally I'd like to get to Taunton more than once a year but work and playing cricket at weekends get in the way somewhat!

Always felt that Surrey were 20-30 light of a decent score but until the Gregory hitting at the end it was never certain of a home victory. Really impressed with the new lights too, Taunton joins the 21st century!

Going along nicely today too, fingers crossed.

Winners at last. Comprehensively outplayed Hampshire in all forms of the game. Tight bowling and fielding, might have been disappointed with that last stand pushing on to a 244 score, but still well below par on that pitch. Then what a start from our openers, denied Hampshire any momentum, and the others calmly took us through to the end with Hildy stroking the winning runs. Great support from the fans and goosebump time with all on our feet singing Stand Up for The Somerset on a regular basis !

Some 16000 there so less than 2/3 full and then the presentation in front of the near empty Warmer stand with both sets of fans at the other end of the ground. Barking. This Somerset team have something about them. Lets see where it takes them.

Only the ECB could schedule the final on the same day as England were playing the Aussies on the home ground of one of the competing teams. Well done for killing off what was once a decent competition.

Your boys played well - to win every match is some record... Wink
