...no real surprise but Corey Anderson has flown home leaving Somerset without another overseas player.

Truly is a shambles behind the scenes at Taunton.. It's threatening to become a complete car crash in fact

Not quite sure what Somerset could of done about a bloke being out injured?

Not so much Anderson but everything else over the past 2-3 years. We've lost a huge amount of tallent and replaced it with players of a poorer quality. The whole Gayle thing this week has become symptomatic of the situation..

Any particular view on the Allenby/Meschede swap?

 

Finally rained off tonight, by the way.

 

Did you go?

Allenby I think is a fine signing, however I belive we should be calling back Meshy if we don't get anyone else in pronto.

Didn't even venture down today, sensed it would be a washout.

Two frustrating (rain effected) results In the last two days...

Couldn't believe yesterday, the rain was heavier at the end of the fifth over, and we were ahead on DL, Glamorgan hit a boundary to go ahead on DL (whilst the rain had eased off) next thing the umpires take the teams off

Speaking as one who's done a fair bit of umpiring, it's the most difficult decision you'll have to make. The rain may have been easing off, but the pitch and outfield were getting wetter, which is a major thing the umpires have to consider.

Apparently Somerset hardly winning a game this season doesn't stop their players being picked for England, first Craig and now Jamie Overton. They both just about squeeze into the averages in the CC but neither of them have any form in T20 cricket which is surely more of a marker than the 4 day game.

Craig doesn't do T20, Jamie isn't bad. Both are exceptional tallents through.

I read somewhere that Craig Overton can bowl at 90mph. That's pretty damn quick and around the same pace as Wood. Imagine Those two as third and fourth seamers against the Aussies. They'd both be quicker than the opening bowlers Anderson and Broad.

That said as Richie Benaud once said when Devon Malcolm was spraying the ball around "there more to fast bowling than just pace"

spoke too soon. That Cooper is a waste of space as well.

To be fair to the guy he was at the other end when Hughes was killed.. I think there is a good player but he's mentally scared.

Still in with a chance but these two will have to see it down to under 50 IMO

Will be attending our annual away victory in Bristol.

Remember going in there last year after the game singing city songs some local gas kid got all fiery

No idea of names of stands, as you go in neville Road entrance there is usually a small marquee with a bar in it, usually stand around there. Had a great laugh with Gloucestershire and Somerset fans last season
