Thank you Farmer.
I could only dip in and out yesterday, but I did "catch" the Hildreth catch - what a catch that was from the veteran!
Am I allowed to call him a veteran at nearly 36?

Commentary still a bit ahead of the pictures

Re the video lag, it's a bit fiddly but I'm listening to the radio commentary alongside the pictures and by pusing astutely you can synch it.

It started off in synch and has fallen behind as the session has gone on.

Better than yesterday but not by much. Excellent 50 from Cove and some useful runs from RvdM and Jove 269 ahead - 300 would be enough one would suggest on this pitch!!

Suprised that James H couldn't do more on this

Bowlers have had enough of having to bowl the side to victory.. and so decided to bat the side to victory as well!!

Story of more than 1 season. Thry are operating a little like some of the fantasy games with Overton's doing gheir stuff.

Bartlett Byrom, Abell and especially Hildreth made it a CC1 winning season because they provided runs to go with the wickets... if only

More than once it happened that they produced a moderatly poor first inning score and then murdered the opposition with the ball.

The synch is the other way today. Commentary ahead of the visual by about a ball.

Not the way a commentator likes it because you can listen, then watch to see if you agree or disagree with their assessment.

Josh Davey really has come on, leaps and bounds, under the current coaching staff.

We can see from the current Northants score that, but for the intervention - with the bat - of the Somerset bowlers, we would probably now be on course to lose this game.

Young Mr Thurston has been rather impressive.

I'm afraid I really don't see Jack Brooks as a CC1 standard bowler any more - he lacks both pace and accuracy.

A couple of strikes from Jamie and the end could be nigh for our hosts.

I thought Rossington was sawn off a bit by Nick Cook, with one that looked too high as well as probably having struck the batsman outside the line of off-stick.

When Northants collapse they do it style.

All looks rather easy right now.

But without the Overton brothers batting onslaught, it could well all have been very different.

Very happy with the overall impending result, but hopefully batting practice will feature for many of our line up this coming week !
