Not sure that Patel took any? And vdM 3? With the wonders of hindsight, we could have gone with 4 quicks there.

We need to continue with Banton, something tells me that he could become an England international one day. The likelihood is we won't see another average pitch next against Yorkshire, so need to be looking at resting a batsman

Are we in a situation where if we beat Yorkshire... we've won it? The 20 odd points there would leave Yorks on 170 odd and take us to 240 ish.... with 2 games to go.

Interesting.....

By my reckoning, unless another team is close behind Yorkshire, and assuming both Yorkshire and Somerset each have three games left, Somerset need eight points more than Yorkshire in the next game to secure the title. A win would do it with some to spare. Now, that is some fantasy. Calm heads required.

We will be very close to the title if we draw with Yorkshire, needing only a few more bonus points to make it safe. Objective number 1, not to lose to them.

There you go, we've all jinxed it now

SLLL,

We have all simply stated facts. No jinx there, although an edit to 'if we draw with Yorkshire' in your last post might be even safer. Not that I am superstitious. Perish the thought ...

Well I've assumed the machine would put the mockers on it all from Game 8 but it hasn't happened and I assume it is working on the basis that statistically we have done better in the second half of a CC1 season than the first for most of the last decade.

Long may it continue.

I plan to run the Yorkshire game from Tuesday so any changes need sorting.

Presently I am assuming the bowling stays mostly the same though there may be a seam change or two?

The only batting conversation would be about a top 3 change perhaps and the nature of number 8.
