Odd Julia, I cut and pasted the info early this morning, then posted this afternoon.

Perhaps Glamorgan have asked for it not to be televised, as it might (will) effect ticket sales.

I will not be making the journey, the ground for me lacks atmosphere.

I saw it mentioned by someone on Twitter this afternoon who was suggesting that perhaps Sky had somehow missed the Roses match. You would have thought that was one they would have always had at the top of their list!

So it has clearly changed during the course of the day. smiling smiley

Our key bowler according to the Cricketer is Max Waller in T20. Corey is the one to watch and Lewis is the captain.

Somerset Seconds are playing Essex Seconds in two 20/20 matches at Taunton today.

The side chosen for the second of the matches is probably as close as you will come to the team to play against Glo`shire on Friday:

Myburgh, Davies, Trego, Hildreth, Anderson, Gregory, Abell, van der Merwe, Jamie Overton, Davey and Waller.

Tom Banton is in the England U19 squad to play South Africa in two U19 Tests. They are currently playing a 2 day warm up against a Unicorns side in Loughborough, the first match against South Africa starts on Sunday.

Tom Banton `retired not out` after making 87 for England Under-19s to give other players a knock. Tom Lammonby, who is captaining the Under-19s, made 45. England declared at 299-4.

People have written Max off after one match in which he was collared! I would like to hear of one bowler who has NEVER been collared at least once. Carry on Max and provide the real entetrtainment!

Who has written him off OB! He is seen in the Cricketer as our 'specialist' T20 player. We haven't had any of them this year have we?

Just had a tweet reply from the Club saying there will be information about signings other than Corey for the T20.... 'soon'.

It may be the info is 'we're not signing anyone else' but who knows?

The question was 'is Corey our only signing for the T20' so I would hope it would be signing based.

Club also replied to another tweet from fan about communication and my question about possible second overseas signing stating that: “overseas players are not something they can comment on at the moment, all will become clear soon.” Very kryptic, but based on that reply would suggest something is in pipeline. Time will tell I guess.

Or maybe nothing, or rather, nobody is in the pipeline. Time will tell.

Todays County Gazette Kerr is saying
SOMERSET head coach Jason Kerr has said the club are “very unlikely” to sign a second overseas player until at least the latter part of the Vitality Blast group stage.


County Gazette

Further mention of the Gregory situation.

So Jason is identifying the issue relating to the second International for the T20 is complicated by Renshaw's return home.

Why?

When did the club know Renshaw was returning home before the end of the season?

haven't they been aware of both situations since the start of this season? We knew we only had 1 T20 player since then for sure and we were also aware that Matt was not going to be in Taunton by August - though his injury brought it forward a bit.

Why is that a complication now?

The other news is we are 2 bowlers down at least for tomorrow. Neither Cove or TimG are available

3 spin option?

No doubt is seems that Lewis will go into the T20 as skipper.

So there we go. A few questions and the 'floodgates' of info open (Sm100)

These somewhat persistent injuries to TG, Cove & Jack are a little concerning.

As regards overseas signings, the justification for large increases in membership fees was largely attributed to the need to make big name signings.

Hmmm........
