Somerset 2024 Empty Somerset 2024

So, likely to be finally underway today. What to expect? Tempted to say same old as Renshaw in to shore up the batting deprived of another Abell hamstring injury. Top half have been weak part of team for so long, cant see how that is going to change significantly. Overton not fit enough for championship duty yet though did have a run out earlier in the week. Hoping that Gregory, Davey, Ball all stay fit, Bash can continue his promise. Whither Leach?

With back to 8pts for a draw can see temptation to gather 12 to 15pt haul for many teams, especially with early season conditions and delays. Once again Somerset's main hope will be the T20 and thankfully there are 2 games at Lords to see the west country side perform at HQ in limited over games as Middlesex don't seem to appear in the 4 day fixture list......

They’re waiting for you to join them in the lower reaches in 2025. Think you’ll do well to stay up.

A spectacular collapse against Surrey even by our standards. Going from 196-1 to 220-8. At least Lammonby seems to be in form. Wonder if Rew will be able to maintain the batting form of last season.

Did very well  to get out of the Oval with the draw. Another 15 mins of batting would have done without the nervy finish. Great games from Aldridge and Gregory and the team battled well.

Some win that over Essex after 1st innings deficit. Overton and Davey key bowlers. Somerset haven't won a championship game without Craig since 2019. Resilient batting at last v a tricky target. Always good to beat Essex !

Somerset played 5 seamers and each of them contributed 4 wickets!
