Exciting opportunity or Graves mistake?
Somerset v the ECB? At the beginning of a possibly record making season for the county, we look at the changes that the ECB are determined to make to the world of cricket as we know it and ask.... opportunity or the death knell of a century or more of cricket history.
The following statement was made by the club at 4pm
New Year, New Captain is 2017 the one?
Welcome to 2017 everyone. The club skipper Tom Abell will welcome you I am sure as will the rest of the squad who have all been stating their desire to get on with this season after having a good go at winning the CC1 for the first time last summer. What are the prospects and what are we in store for... so many years of promise that haven't delivered. Is this the one that will?
So......... Shall we review?
So Matthew Maynard is not going anywhere any time soon. Sorry those of little faith.... it seems he did have a plan after all.
The End of Days
And so we come to the end of the 2016 season with Chris Rogers leading his four day squad into the last game of the season looking for a trophy. Who'da thunk it?
Could be Worcs QF 50 over
No Tim Groenewald for today's game so Josh Davey gets a run out in this home quarter final. Beautiful day, full house and warm sunshine predicted for the whole day . Worcestershire won the toss and will bat first. Moin is in for them
To the death with Durham CC1
Durham make the trip down fromthe North East for a vital CC1 game. The weather is variable but Somerset seem to hope their spinners will have a say as Roelof va der Merwe joins Jack Leach in the home team line up.
It is Sussex but not by the Sea
The last home game of the 50 over regional league games and the chance of clinching a home quarter final place if we win this one. The side may be a little jaded by the trip back from Southampton last night although many were rested with this game in mind. We have also lost our Dutch contingent with Johann Myburgh out injured and RvdM and Van Meerkenen out on national duty. As I get there around midday it is not going well with 4 wickets down and less than 50 on the board.
'Sex THREE times in a month!! ....50 overs
We welcome Middlesex for the third time in not long and face a very hard task in this format as the boys from the South East have brought their big guns except for Steve Finn. Josh Davey gets a run out against his old county and Max sits this one out. We've won the toss and will bowl first.
Here be Dragons 50 Over
Craig Overton and Tim Groenewald return for the 50 over match against the Welsh and seem to be the only changes from the T20 defeat at the SWALEC on Friday evening. Mesch is in for the visitors so it's a welcome back to him. It is also the first game for Mahela Jayawardene in this format for Somerset.
