What is the UK finish time tomorrow people?

The way we're playing it's time to put the idea to rest of Kent as our unlucky team

Three spinners included in the 15-man Somerset squad for tomorrow, Jack Leach, Dom Bess and Roelof van der Merwe, but only one likely to play.

George Bartlett and Tom Banton named among the batters.

Squad; Abell, Ali, Banton, Bartlett, Bess, Brooks, Davey, Davies, Gregory, Groenewald, Hildreth, Leach, C.Overton, Trego and van der Merwe.

Kent will be without Australian-born fast bowler Grant Stewart, injured playing for the Seconds on Monday, but may include former Somerset all-rounder Calum Haggett.

I'd be inclined to save Azhar and both Jacks for the longer stuff, play Dom and choose between Josh and Tim for the last spot (pretty much a toss up)
Is Jamie still not fully fit or is he deemed unsuitable for the 50-over format?

Ali Probably open and let everyone bat around him one would assume.
Order will probably be very flexible after Banton and Trego dependant on state of game.
Very strong Batting line up with Cove at 9 or 10 if Van De Merve plays

It strikes me as nonsensical to bat Cove at 10 when we could bat him at 9 (still pretty low for his ability) and give ourselves an extra bowling option.

Kent have now named a 13-man squad for tomorrow. They will be without Daniel Bell-Drummond because of a family bereavement, while Mitchell Claydon is on the injured list.

Kent from: Kuhn (c), Blake, Crawley, Dickson, Qayyum, Klaassen, Milnes, Podmore, Renshaw, Riley, Robinson, Rouse and Stevens. Batting appears somewhat reliant on imports Kuhn and Renshaw.

A lot depends on whether we can get 24 overs out of Abell,Trego and Roelof.
More Likely Cove , Gregory , plus 2 from 4 of what's left.
If Bess plays Cove would still be at 10!!!

A bit surprised we are playing two spinners on what looks like a greenish strip.

Azhar looked pretty rusty in his brief stay to put it mildly, but some wonderful shots from T.B. who is using his height to great advantage.

Lovely atmosphere at the ground. Can’t help feeling a bit sad that the ECB are about to destroy the competition and with it the enjoyment of thousands of fans.

Well done Tom Banton. First of many 50s we all hope. Very confident start.

Until mid June and then again for the month of September.

Thought I should be here when we win the Championship. Unless of course we’ve wrapped it up long before then !

I'll see you at the Essex game if that is the case then sir. I'm back in the gap between your visits so hope the cricket and cider are good.

Tom Banton can open for me in white ball cricket if anyone wants to know. He seemed to be in another game to the rest. Such confident murder at times. He looks taller and less 'timid'.

Anyone think though that it might be an option to change Ali and Hildreth around and have James opening with Tom?

Storming century for a Somerset man with a future I think. Steve..... I'd score some runs in the CC1 - It isn't Jos you have to worry about.


Lewis also going from strength to strength in his season with a 50 in his first white ball game.

Superb catch Lewis gone. 320 will be a good score now.

Dom's got it to 330 but mis-hooked it to the keeper.

That sounds good Grockle.

Nice innings by Craig as well.

Will it be enough ? It ought to be and in times past it would be a cakewalk, but who knows these days.

A lot will depend on a certain M Renshaw methinks.
