Another very enjoyable report, JCW. But posted at 4.40 - you don’t have the excuse that it took you a long time to return home from the ground! I hope that you have time to pack your lunch before the first ball of today’s play.

Thank you Wickham. I may be at home, but it didn't stop me being late for the start this morning. And missing a wicket ...

Did the peregrines nest again at the top of the tower of St Mary's?

Yes Shaun. And fledged at least three young.

Silly Billy!

Is Lammonby just a batsman now?

I assume BG isn't allowed to bowl if he's GB's replacement.

Encouraging performances by Tom A & Ben today.

Hopefully, George's concussion related absence is just a precaution.

Meantime, Messrs. Overton now have 11 of the 16 Glamorgan wickets so far to fall.........

Have Surrey pinched them yet?

Thanks, SJB. Good to know that the peregrines have been almost as productive as the Overtons (and possibly even speedier - though I’m not sure that even a peregrine could match the final ball thunderbolt from Jamie).

Scyld Berry’s report in the Telegraph says that today was the first time Somerset's live streaming of a first class game achieved in excess of 100K views in a day, with that number having grown to 126K by close of play.

A tremendous achievement for the Club, particularly those closely involved in the project.

Many thanks to everyone concerned !

No interest in County Cricket though so don't say it too loud!

A lot of the views might have been people refreshing when the sound went off.

'Refreshing' is what Tractor does at frequent intervals during a day on Gimbletts Hill.

Anthony suggested that there should be "C'mon My Babbies" recordings played at regular intervals during the lockdown. Certainly would give them a more realistic feel of a home game

A very easy win in the end.

I'd like to say that that was a great debut for our new groundsman, I think, with a track with plenty of pace and bounce in it. Exactly what the doctor ordered with the Overtons in our attack.

What a great upgrade this season in the live feed, really must say a big thank you to Ben and any others involved in bringing cricket to us.

When you see the amount of staff and equipment SKY bring to the ground for a TV match,
it confirms how lucky we are to have such a good live feed from a mostly inhouse team.

It was a joy on all accounts to watch the club start their campaign. Lots of positives on and off the pitch

Live feed was excellent. Going to be difficult watching some of the away matches with just fixed cameras at each end!
