Will be keeping an eye on Bethell that’s for sure, what a talent he looks 

Incredible talent. I’m probably as big a fan of Tom Abell as it’s possible to be, but even though he got a hundred I thought Bethell looked head and shoulders the best batsman in the game.

Bracey gone now. Five (four possibly) to get.

Nice to see Jack Leach (city fan) get the gas head Bracey out in both innings..

Splendid win, looked worrying after the first few, though it is fair to say an attack of Siddle, Overton, Davey, Gregory & Leach is better than one of Siddle, De Lange, Leonard, Aldridge & Van Der Merwe, which was what we started off the season with..

Absolute shambles from Glos, really poor. Get Harvey and Boo-boo back. They got more out of our squad than Benkenstein is doing right now. I expected defeat this week, but not the manner of it.

When he lifts the ashes for England no doubt the Glos will say he’s one of their own 🤣

Indeed, and only for this one match, I believe.

Nevertheless, I doubt many Glos. fans ever thought otherwise.

Do we know if Somerset have triggered a release clause for next season? 🤭

If Harry Brook isn't in the England squad next week then there's something wrong.

You can say the same about Ben Compton and Ben Foakes, too. All three have done enough to be in the squad. Crawley and Burns have both done nothing, despite being on flat decks.

Burns did get a century last week

One ton in eight innings shouldn’t be enough to get into the England squad when others have scored significantly more runs than his total of 256.

I agree. Just saying he hasn’t done nothing. will be interesting to see how he keeps doing as he has changed his technique a little bit. 

I would say though that I wouldn’t be picking players just because they are in a bit of form.  We have been there before and it never really works.

Getting back to the subject of young Bethell, if, as I understand it, he was signed on a one match loan, does that mean he is now going to play for Warwickshire Seconds now.

It seems such a waste of a wonderful young talent if that is the case.

They want him back for T20’s which kick off from next week

Decided to give today a miss what with the weather and go tomorrow instead.

I’m sure the bowlers will improve their length today. How often do you see a team go into bat with not long left in the day, difficult conditions and everyone is expecting a late flurry of wickets and we get none because the bowlers bowl too short?

We've certainly seen England and Somerset do it on many occasions and then the following day improve.
