We did question the length of the tail.The extra batsman might have cost us this time round.

26 ahead and one wicket already taken. Keep calm and bowl on.

The low first innings scores are rather curious to me, expecting 350+

At least we seem to have got the batting positions right for Ali, Bartlett and Abell

And Bartlett

It was one batsman scoring and others not hanging around - lots of 60+ with 2s and single figures from the next man in. The big partnership was between Bartlett and Abell and then not much after that I'm afraid.

The tail most definitely did not wag.

Interesting that Hampshire used almost no slow men while at one time ours were the only ones taking wickets.

All to play for at the start of Day 3.

Morning session starts strong for Hampshire and they knock off the Somerset lead easily as the pacemen struggle. BUT the slow men don't. I hour before Lunch Jack 8/0/17/2 and Dom 7/4/6/2 take Visitor wickets for fun and clear out their big hitters in Northeast, Berg and Rossouw to leave Hampshire on 117 for 6 at the interval. Still NOT 100 ahead.

A good session. BUT can they keep them in check and produce a total we can chase?

Somerset need 40 for the win in one day. Jack leach works his magic and we remove Hampshire needing less than 130 for the win.

80 odd for 2 at the end of day 3

Remember, remember: 78 all out. Abbott. Southampton 2019. I would say, "Stay alert," but someone else has nicked that one. So:

Keep calm and bat on.

Didn’t they get given the option of an extra half hour Grockle

Nope. That facility was not presented. The forecast isn't good so I would have certainly taken it if it had been there.

I think in the real scheme of things we would have made sure a result of some form or other would have been achieved on day 3,with a possible washout on day 4.We will see what prevails!!

Rain!! Rain!! Rain!!

But not enough!

The 40 runs came in 2 bits. 18 before a 2 hour rain break over lunch before Eddie and James finished the game off winning by 8 wickets and taking points while Yorkshire LOST to Surrey.

Somerset on top (149 points) Yorkshire second (133)

Next game is Nottinghamshire at Taunton

It's all going to plan...

But what are Yorkshire doing losing to Surrey? Shouldn't Scarborough be seeing a dramatic last overs finish?

Surrey bowled them out for 90.

Scored 271 and then bowled them out for 167

Won by an innings and 14 runs

Raining in reality for the first time in ages as well, it would be interesting if the computer used actual live weather conditions. Not so good if you wanted to play in January at night I suppose.

Anyway, who are the contenders for the championship now? And the relegation favourites?

We need to get Banton back, but can't take any risks against Yorkshire
