Surprised to see Sale bowling 20th over. He didn't look like a death bowler last week

Surprised that with four overs to go, we've got two others each left for Overton and Gregory and choose Sale again after another nightmare first over

Needs Birmingham to lose tonight so it's in our own hands 

Otherwise we're going to be watching other results on Sunday 

Fancy Durham to lose to Notts so we may be ok with 3rd place.

However I have no hope of us winning at Glos today. Can’t remember the last time we played well there

It almost feels like it isn't worth watching, but I'm just going to put up with seeing our 76 all out then I can concentrate on the football instead.

******* hell that was an abysmal last ball, perfect for someone whose not faced a ball just to swing, why the hell not just bowl a yorker? a single was fine.

Or maybe the captain could grow a pair and bowl himself. Two games Sale cost us the win in the tourney.

Anyway best of luck to Glos, hope you can make it to finals day 🤞

Thanks. Isn’t it great you can say that and I’d genuinely feel the same about Zummerset.

THE MESSAGE BEHIND THE TROPHY

While Somerset will go head-to-head with old rivals Essex on the pitch in search of honours at Lord’s this week, off the pitch the focus will be on one man – Bob Willis.

The former England captain and Sky Sports pundit, who made over 90 Test appearances for his country in a playing career that spanned two decades, died from prostate cancer in December 2019. His death united the cricket world, with the ECB ensuring his legacy would live on in the sport by naming the first tournament of 2020 – and the first following the Covid-19 pandemic – the Bob Willis Trophy.

His wife, Lauren Clark, has teamed up with leading men’s health charity Prostate Cancer UK to raise vital funds and to encourage men at greater risk of prostate cancer to visit their GP.

“The fact that in the UK, prostate cancer is now the most commonly diagnosed of all the cancers goes to show why a lot more needs to be done into prostate cancer research,” she said.

“Yes, it’s true that only men can get it; I can’t get it, but like too many wives, partners and families – I couldn’t have been more affected by it. I want to help people with prostate cancer. I want Bob to have a legacy.”

One in eight men in the UK will be affected by prostate cancer at some point in their lives, with that statistic rising to one in four for black men. It is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, reinforcing the need to take action. This month, Prostate Cancer UK launched a new online risk checker, where men and their families can find out if they are at increased risk of the disease and what steps they can take – and that extends to the Somerset cricketing family.

The inaugural Bob Willis Trophy final at Lord’s will see branding from Prostate Cancer UK around the ground and on the stumps, with the winner’s trophy based on a drawing of Bob by Lauren. Royalties from Bob’s book, Bob Willis – A Cricketer and a Gentleman, have also come to the charity.

Fans can text BOB to 70004 to donate £10 to Prostate Cancer UK or visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/bobwillis
