The chase is still on... until it isn't. Off to Hampshire looking for 20 odd once more.

If Hampshire play the same 11 as gained an important win at Worcester in the week, all four seamers will be from overseas - Fidel Edwards, Dale Steyn, Kyle Abbott and Ian Holland (born in the USA and played two years for Victoria).

They have been most of the season with Berg playing instead of Holland

Hampshire name the same squad of 13 that beat Worcestershire. Would have thought Somerset won’t need 2 spinners in this match

Jiove might be rested before the weekend with Davey coming in.They could omit Bess for Roelof or maybe another batsman Bartlett or Lammonsby.

Unfortunately for you, you can't transport the Taunton wicket around the country with you. Steyn, Edwards and Abbott were red hot at Worcester and hopefully will be again for the RLC Winners (who won that competition with a side comprised primarily of home-grown, young or youngish home-grown talent: Alsop, McManus, Weatherley, Brad Taylor, Crane, Vince and Dawson).

Hampshire are very up and down at present: thrashing Notts, getting thumped at Chelmsford, before winning well at Worcester. This probably means Somerset will post a decent score before we bat feebly.

From...

Tom Abell, Azhar Ali, Dom Bess, Josh Davey, Steve Davies, Ben Green, Lewis Gregory, James Hildreth, Jack Leach, Roelof van der Merwe, Craig Overton, Jamie Overton and Marcus Trescothick.

So the batting line-up is unchanged from playing Lancashire. Josh instead of Dom for a seamier attack? Or rest Lewis for finals day if any injury concerns?

We haven't needed to 'transport' it with us before Hants. As long as yours provides for seamers and spinners and we bat better it will be just like being at home - except not against Lancs.

In case you've missed it this season, Somerset can play outside their county borders. Should be a good game if we both play like we did against Worcestershire.

So in the words of Senator Corey Booker..... 'Bring it' (Sm160)

As I understand it, Kyle Abbott found bowling form for more or less the first time this season at New Road, which is inconvenient timing.

For those not down here at the Bowl, Hampshire are unable to offer Live Stream for this match.

Disappointing from Bradsgrove's self-styed "finest international ground in the country".

Self-styed? Better not to get on the wrong side of him and the ECB right now

Didn't realise this was starting today, but it looks a dreadful morning session given that we must have wanted to bat (regardless of whether or not we opted to or were sent in).

A hangover from the second innings debacle vs Lancs?

And, as against Lancs in that unmitigated shambles, looks as though Ben Green may have been rather better than the others?

If so, well done to Ben.

The rest of the batting is letting the club down in the "crunch-time," part of the season, I'm afraid..

It's the morning for wickets.

Division one. - 15 wickets.
Division two. - 24 wickets.

Perhaps the pitch inspector will be getting interested at the Rose Bowl now!

No pitch inspector is necessary.

A batting inspector, however, would discover that, once again, we are sadly lacking and deficient when it comes to dealing with a moving ball.

Not good enough (and that will still be true even if we bowl Hants out for 120 - that would just mean that there are two batting line-ups playing in this match who are not good enough, as indeed was the case vs Lancs).

Also forget that none of the wickets have fallen to spin so that’s OK
