Sentence deleted, as it was unduly optimistic - and that will never do.

It's so good to have real cricket at last.

Marcus bowled by Podmore for 10. Good ball 30 for 1. He seemed to be driving well unfortunately he got inside one. And in comes our new number 3 Mr Hildreth. Big LBW shout ball one.

Podmore has certainly looked more of a handful than Stevens has. Though he has been the tighter of the two bowlers.

Kent now believe that Ali has edged to slip. Azhar did not walk and the umpires seem to have decided that it did not carry.

Too many starts and then out. 100 with 4 down is not good at home to be honest as a first innings total

Anything over 200 would be ok, very green strip. Is the free WiFi not working?

Keep calm and drink tea. We beat Worcs and Yorks at home early last season with 200ish scores

It is always debatable what a good score is until both sides have batted BUT we must be planning for a desirable total over 200 before we lose our first 5 surely. 150 minimum I would have thought. Bonus points have to be a target in our first innings if we are to win close fought Championships.

Bartlett has gone for 6 LBW. 200 is looking quite a way away at the moment.

Lewis drives for 4 and then drives into the slips hands off an outside edge. Whoops

And then Tom tries to pull out of a pull/hook and doesn't...so he goes for 49. Took an age to get to the fielder.

145 for 8..... 200 beyond reach I would suggest if we insist on losing 3 for 10 after Tea

Brooksey off the mark with a rampant four nonchalantly driven through the covers

And that's your lot at 171. 31 for 5 after Tea. Hmmmmm.

Let's see how Matt deals with this pitch.... and hope he doesn't.

The same score as Durham and lower than Derbs and Sussex. Let's make the Kent total the lowest first innings of the round

Nice touch I hadn't noticed is that all the Somerset players have black armbands on for John Harris I would assume

Lewis opening from the Pavilion with a maiden. Brooks opening from the River. First objective = get Dickson or Crawley. Second objective = neutralise Renshaw

Yesterday my grandson (3) asked for his bedroom lights to be kept on "because they keep my eyes warm". Does that work for those of you at the ground this evening?

Crawley goes and Podmore comes in as the nightwatchman but 71 for 1 is looking strong.

The boundary is very very small all the way around - I hadn't realised until I went out to Gimblett's that is was quite a way in on that side as well. It is effectively a women's T20 boundary around the place.

Bitter wind but many stalwarts watching this day out. We would have been off for light by now at any other time in the county's history.

A different background on this photo of Sean Dickson scoring four runs.
Not very warm today I was trying to find a warmer part of the ground to take photos.

Well without the lights I don't think we would have taken two wickets, I believe we would have been off the ground because of bad light.
